Rose Mary Lacona

Rose Mary Lacona, 85, went peacefully to the Lord on Wednesday, July 4, at Mercy Hospice in Johnston following a week-long illness.  She was born to Teresa and James Lacona on May 13, 1933, the youngest of six children.

Rose Mary attended St. Anthony grade school and St. Joseph’s Academy.  After high school, she went to work for her brother, Noah, in his growing restaurant business.  She loved people and enjoyed serving them.

The family will celebrate her life July 9 at 1 o’clock at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, with burial following.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Frank, Noah, and Charles; and her sister, Josephine.

Rose Mary is survived by her sister, Dorothy, and nephew, Mark, with whom Rose Mary lived; a sister-in-law, Margaret Lacona; and many other nieces and nephews.  Memorials may be directed to Holy Trinity.


Online condolences will not publish to our website but will generate an email that is directed to the family.
