ALBANY – Rosina  (Commisso) DeLeo completed her life here on Monday, August 8, 2011, at her home in Albany, surrounded by her adoring family.  Born September 11th, 1925 in Siderno Marina, Calabria, Italy, Rosina was the daughter of the late Francesco and Maria Commisso.  She emigrated to Albany in 1948 with her family and was an Albany resident the rest of her life. 

Rosina was an accomplished seamstress, and a gifted Italian meal maker.  She served as a mother and nurturer for many children, in addition to her six children.  Beginning with her younger sister, Angelina, and youngest brother Tony and spanning 3 generations to her 3 year old grandchild Valentina, –  “Rosie” always had children surrounding her.  Whether she was making pastina or singing Italian nursery rhymes, she was happiest in her home, with children to care for.

Rosina is predeceased by her brothers Joseph and Cosimo Commisso, and her grandson, Christopher Gene Dailey. 

The family wishes to extend special thanks to Dr. Mary Ellen Drislane and to Shirley Street, RN of Community Hospice, for their compassionate care and sympathy.

Gina and family…i know how hard it is to lose a mom, but that’s the selfish part of me. The good part is thankful her trials are over. Please accept condolences from me and from Ted & Guthrie.

Cosimo, I was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I remember when your mom made us a wonderful dinner when we were back in college. Your mom was wonderful, and a mom to all! Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Gina and Family…My words cannot express my sadness for you. I know that her suffering is over now, but it does not ease the pain of loss. I never had the honor of meeting her, but I know through your stories and who YOU are, that this world lost a beautiful person…. and that for God and the Heavens, it just got a little brighter. My condolences to you and your family during this time. Please take care of each other, and if I can be of help in any way, I will. I am so so sorry.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. To know you was to know how wonderful your mom was, even though I never met her. As she has always been, she will continue to be watching over all of her family with her everlasting love.
With Sympathy, Martha
