Rosalie A. Vincz

On June 18, the angels who brought Rosalie to earth 91 years ago came to bring her back to Heaven.

Born in Flushing, Queens, NY on May 26, 1927, Rosalie A.Vincz passed away peacefully at her home in Toms River, where she spent her final days and moments with her family around her. Rosalie had indomitable spirit. While her body became beset by physical frailties and declining health, she was ever resilient, courageous and determined to be a loving mother to her very last breath.

Rosalie is pre-deceased by her parents Louis and Carmella Mina (Badamo); her husband, Edward G. Vincz; a sister, Anita; and two brothers, Kenneth and Francis.

Rosalie moved to the Bronx when was very young and then grew up in and around Eastchester, NY, where her father was a grocer and her mother was a professional seamstress. She had an extended Italian family of aunts, uncles and cousins, all who lived and worked near her and her immediate family in Westchester County, NY. Her mother's sister married her father's brother, so all her cousins were "double" cousins. They all shared the same grandparents as well as the joy of each other's company, especially during their many Sunday Italian meals together.

Rosalie moved to Edison, NJ in the 1950s after her marriage to Ed Vincz, where she and Ed raised five children and enjoyed close friendships, bridge games, family vacations and community projects with their neighbors of Oak Hills. Rosalie was also active in her church community. She was a devout Catholic in faith and how she lived, and embraced everyone around her with love. Rosalie was a parishioner and Extraordinary Minister at Saint Francis Church in Metuchen and participated in the church's Mr. and Mrs. Club. After she moved in her retirement days to Linville, NC, Rosalie served St. Bernadette Catholic church by cleaning and preparing linens for Mass.

Rosalie was amazing with her hands and sewing machine. She made many things for family, home and neighbors, gave sewing lessons out of her home, and weaved several afghans to keep everyone warm. She later took up quilting and her creations were so original and beautiful that they won awards at quilting shows. She was similarly passionate about her cooking. She amassed volumes of recipes and prepared thousands of meals for a family of seven, usually on a shoe string budget. She was a true magician who could make huge meals from meager supplies in the kitchen cabinet and turn scraps of material into works of quilting art.

Rosalie found beauty and peace with nature. She adored gardening at her home in Edison, taking and guiding wildflower walks in her beloved mountains of North Carolina and enjoyed the peaceful solitude and fresh air of mountain living. She loved the outdoors, and took joy in skiing, ice skating, golfing and even surfing.
Rosalie retired with Ed to Linville, NC in the 1980s and cherished her dear friends there as well as her mountain home -- Eternity's Sunrise -- until Ed passed away in 2009.

Rosalie returned to New Jersey in 2010 and spent her remaining days keeping in touch with close and life-long friends and was happiest when spending her time with her family. Rosalie is survived by five children, Janet Vincz D'Alessandro of Cape May Court House, and her husband, Charles D'Alessandro; Donald Vincz of Edison and his wife, Carolyn; Virginia Vincz Clancy of Brielle, and her husband, Al Clancy; Mary Lou Vincz Moczynski of Edison; Thomas Vincz of Burlington, New Jersey, his wife Sharon; and two grandchildren, Eliza and TJ Vincz of Burlington.

Rosalie's favorite saying was: Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today is a GIFT. That's why they call it the present.

Private funeral and internment services will be held on Saturday, June 23. A memorial service celebrating Rosalie's life is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, 10:15 am at St. Francis Cathedral in Metuchen, NJ, followed by a repass.

In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting that donations be made through In Memory Of for the benefit of the American Heart Association at www.inmemoryof-memorial.org or by mailing a check made payable to In Memory Of, PO Box 5472, Charlottesville, VA 22905.
