Rosina "Rose" Golino

Rosina “Rose” Golino, devoted wife of Rosario J. Golino who predeceased her, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2021 at the Eddy Memorial Geriatric Center in Troy, NY at the age of 97 after a brief illness.    Born in Brooklyn, she was the daughter of Michael and Martha Pace and had one brother Vito (Connie) Pace who predeceased her.

Rose was a graduate of St. John’s University with a degree in French and taught French in various New York City high schools after graduation.   Fluent in both Italian and French, she wanted to use her language skills in the banking industry and transitioned to what would become a long 25-year career on Wall Street, retiring from European American Bank as an Assistant Vice President.

Despite being a career woman somewhat ahead of her time, Rose’s main focus was always her family. She was the devoted mother of Dominick F. (Patricia) Golino of Charlotte, N.C. and Prudence (Stephen) Pechenik of Troy. She cherished and was always proud of her grandchildren Danielle (Jon) Laws of Denver, NC; Natalie Russell of Tampa, FL; Jeffrey (Laura) Pechenik of Denver, CO and Iris Pechenik of Long Beach, CA.   “Aunt Rose” is also survived by several generations of adoring nieces and nephews with whom she shared many years of fun family gatherings and holiday dinners.  Everyone will miss her quick wit, sensible disposition and large presence in any room she occupied.

Rose moved to East Northport, Long Island from Brooklyn when she and her husband retired which gave them more time to spend visiting their grandchildren, take trips and enjoy their friends of 40 years.  In 1997 she moved to The Terrace at Highpointe in Troy, NY to be near her daughter and grandchildren.  When not socializing with her neighbors or sampling new restaurants in the region, Rose’s passion in retirement was reading and the only untidy spaces in her Townhouse were the many closet shelves and drawers that overflowed with books read or still to be enjoyed – sometimes with a Southern Comfort.

There will be no calling hours.  An interment will take place in the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery with a Memorial Service to be held at a later date to celebrate her long life and legacy.  Memorial contributions in Rose’s memory can be made to Community Hospice of Rensselaer County at 295 Valley View Blvd, Rensselaer, NY  12144.

Prudence, there are no words for such a loss. In reading her obituary, I learned a bit of how your mother lived her life, in attaining goals, accomplishments, and having such a love for her entire family. She was an amazing woman! Now I know where you get your wonderful qualities from! Your mother has been blessed by you being her daughter. During this incredibly difficult time, I am hoping that happy memories of her sustain you and your family. She will be missed. But her love for you will continue every day. May you feel and see her, daily, in the smallest steps you take. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers and thoughts.
