Rosemary H. Sarcinelli, 96, a lifelong resident of Scranton, and formerly of South Lincoln Avenue, died Sunday morning at Elan Skilled Nursing and Rahab, Scranton. Her husband, Nicholas Sarcinelli Sr., died Sept. 20, 1983.
Born Nov. 2, 1925, in Scranton, daughter of the late William and Margaret Heffron Regan, Rosemary was educated in West Scranton schools.

Rosemary assisted numerous priests along the way in her divine effort to help the parishioners of St. Patrick’s. A lifelong member of St. Patrick’s Parish, Rosemary was a member of the Society of the Faithful, the Guild Society, and also enjoyed quilting and bingo at the church.
A wonderful woman in her home and her church life, Rosemary enjoyed fishing with her late husband, Nick. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren became her life in the golden years.
