Rose Marie Cronin, 74, a longtime Troy resident passed away peacefully Monday, July 13, 2015 surrounded by her family at her home.
Born and raised in Troy; she was the daughter of the late Samuel Salvati and Mary Catherine Daniele Salvati.
Rose Marie was a woman of many talents. When she was younger she worked as a model, actress and playboy bunny at the original Chicago mansion. She eventually moved back to North Troy, where she bought a "diamond in the rough" and transformed it into a showpiece, with her vision and flair for design and good taste. Throughout her life, she always offered a helping hand to others, and usually went above and beyond. Her motto could have been, "go big or go home." In her later years, she enjoyed cooking for friends and family, and entertaining in her lavish home. Of course, there was always plenty for everyone. She also took great care of her mother, with whom she had been living for 25 years. Like her own mother, she never sat still for long. She had incredible energy, and was always accomplishing tasks, usually while blasting her favorite music on her stereo. Her taste in all things was impeccable. She truly was one of a kind.
She is survived by her daughter, Debra Perry (Keith) of North Kingstown, RI., her brother, Anthony J. Salvati, Sr, (the late Mary Salvati) of Brunswick, her niece, Marie Salvati, her nephews, Vincent Salvati, Anthony Salvati, Jr. and Michael Salvati.
Rose was predeceased by her mother, father and her brother, Vincent R. Salvati.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated 12:00 pm on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at St. Augustine's Church, 25 115th Street, Lansingburgh. Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery, Troy.
Calling hours will be held from 9:00 am to 11:30 am on Thursday at McLoughlin & Mason Funeral Home, corner of 109th Street and Third Avenue, Lansingburgh, prior to funeral mass.
