Struthers…Rosemarie Wiederman, 98, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 2, 2023, at the Hospice of the Valley Hospice House, surrounded by family.
Rosemarie was born October 5, 1924, in Youngstown, the daughter of James and Susie (DeMarco) Del Colle. She graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1942.
With her passing, Rosemarie was reunited with the love of her life, Frank Wiederman. They were married on September 17, 1970, and were inseparable until Frank passed away on August 15, 2010.
Rosemarie was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Dominic’s Church in Youngstown and then St. Nicolas Church in Struthers. For years, she loved making pierogies with close friends at St. Stanislaus Church. Earlier in her life, Rosemarie worked as a bookkeeper for McKelvey’s Department Store and Youngstown Business Machines.
Rosemarie was known by all for her love of baking. She constantly shared her Pizzelles, Kolachi, Kiffles, Cream Puffs, Angel Food Cake, and many, many other treats with family, friends and loved ones. She also was an excellent seamstress, always happy to make gifts and fix clothes for her family. Later in life, she spent winters in California with her beloved sister, Anne Carano, making dozens of close friends that she kept in close contact with through the years. Most importantly, Rosemarie will be remembered for her grace, kindness and warmth that made everyone feel loved and special – family, friends, and neighbors.
Rosemarie was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Vincent (Barb) Del Colle, and sister Anne (Michael) Carano. She was immediately joined in heaven by her lifelong friend Jane Schiffer.
