Rose Anwander, 71 years young, resident of Brooklyn, NY was called home into the arms of the Lord on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019. Graduate of St. Michaels and Bishop Kearney, she was devout in her faith. Fearless in her battle with a sickness that takes too many, she remained steadfast in her values; faith, family and compassion. A devoted Catholic and Mother, Rose is survived by her husband Arthur of 51 years, her children: Michele, Heather, Kerry, Kristy and Arthur, 12 Grandchildren: Mark, Kerry, Emily, Josephine, George, Grace, James, Rosie, Arthur, Emma, Rudy and Liam. She was born on September 16, 1947 in County Meath, Ireland to her beloved parents Josephine & Christopher Gaffney. Together with her parents and siblings: Stella, Ann, Patricia, Sheila, Irene, Linda, Thomas and Christopher she moved to America and settled in Brooklyn New York in 1958. With a genuine, kind soul and a smile as bright as the sun, she touched all who knew her. She will forever be missed and loved. Love you for always, Honey, Mom and Mima!

I remember my mom coming home from your wedding and going on and on about what a stunning bride arty had married. She described your long, red hair. Your gown and how you and arty were the most attractive bride and groom she had ever seen. Now I was very young at that time but I clearly remember how happy she was for both of you. And I think as each guest left, they received the news paper! Rose I believe that Jesus prepared a very special place for you 💞. God Bless you and your family.

We are sending you nothing but prayers and love to your family. Although I never had the opportunity to meet Rose. I know how very much Charli loved her and had the honor of hearing such beautiful stories about her. Our family loves Artie and send you Artie and your entire family our deepest condolences. May you be blessed with peace, love, comfort, and everlasting memories.

It seems like a life time ago that I saw Rose. I remember her brogue and always laughing. If you were at a wedding you wanted to be at the table with Rose and Artie. So full of life. She was always so kind and loving. Rest in Peace Rose.
