Obituary for Rose Santi

January 11, 1927 - December 28, 2018
McHenry, Illinois | Age 91


Rose Santi (nee Lorusso), affectionately known as "Noni", age 91, of McHenry, passed away peacefully, Friday, December 28, 2018, at JourneyCare Hospice Facility, Barrington. She was born January 11, 1927, to the late Michael and Filomena (nee DeSantis) Lorusso, in Italy. On October 28, 1950, she married the love of her life, Victor C. Santi, at St. James Catholic Church, Highwood, IL.
Rose is survived by her loving husband of 68 years, Victor; dear children: Mary "Tooky" Prazak, Gino V. (Melissa) Santi, Michael Santi, Victor A. (Donna) Santi, and Patti Santi; cherished grandchildren: Emily Prazak, Tanya Santi, Samantha (Jared) Pinkus, Nicole (Mike) Uren, Sarah Santi, Andrew (Megan) Santi, Julia (Adam) Kohls, and Ross Santi; and beloved great-grandchildren: Sebastian, Jake, Addie, Teddi, Charlotte, Theo, Sawyer, and Mason.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings: Ann Camporeale and Joe Lorusso.
Rose was a homemaker for the majority of her married life and found great joy in the pleasures of the job, including shopping the sales at the McHenry Jewel, cooking for and feeding her children and grandchildren and getting her hands dirty in the vegetable gardens of her son, grandson and neighbors.
Even in her last years, she had a devilish sweet tooth, a long dedication to the Chicago Cubs, enjoyed lunch and dominoes with her lady friends at the McHenry Country Club and rejoiced at the simple bloom of a beautiful rose.
Visitation will be held on Monday, December 31, 2018, from 10am until the time of Funeral Mass said 1pm at Church of Holy Apostles, 5211 W Bull Valley Road, McHenry. Interment will be private.
