Beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt
August 24, 2022
Waterbury – Mrs. Rosemary (Rose) M. (Grosso) Obbagy, 79, passed away on Tuesday morning, Aug. 23, 2022, at Shady Oaks Assisted Living in Bristol. She was the widow of John W. Obbagy Jr.
Rosemary was born June 17, 1943, in Bridgeport, daughter of the late Michael and Margaret (Dipronio) Grosso. Raised in Bridgeport, she attended local schools and was a graduate of the Southern Connecticut State University. In 1980, the family moved to Waterbury. She had been employed with G-Fox and Filenes and became a licensed agent for The Hartford Insurance Company.
Rosemary cherished her family, especially all her nieces and nephews. She loved going to the movies with her friends and meeting others for her T.A.B.S. dinners. She could spend hours at a Hallmark store looking for that perfect card. She will be greatly missed by her children and all who knew her.
Rosemary is survived by her daughter, Michelle Bruce and her husband, Walter “Skip” of Bristol’ two sons, John W. Obbagy and his wife, Carol, of Bethel, and Brian M. Obbagy of Waterbury; a brother, Ronald Grosso of Stratford; her granddaughter, Nicole Bruce of Norwich; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her brothers, Michael and James Grosso.
The family would like to thank the owner, Tyson Belanger, and each and every staff member at Shady Oaks Assisted Living for their love, care and support they provided for Rosemary.
