Rosalie Singh Muscolino
Aug. 27, 1930 ~ June 19, 2017

Rosalie Muscolino, loved and adored as a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and cherished friend, passed away. With her family beside her, she completed her journey here on earth. With anticipation to be with those who left before her, Rosalie died at her residence on June 19, 2017.
Born at the family farm in Corinne, Utah, on Aug. 27, 1930, Rosalie was the sixth of seven children. Her father and mother, Sunder Amer and Petra Moreno Singh, raised their family as hard, dedicated workers. Rosalie continued her upbringing and was devoted in all her endeavors.
Graduating from Box Elder High School in 1948, she continued her education at St. Benedict’s School of Nursing. She graduated and became a licensed registered nurse in 1951. Rosalie was instrumental in opening the first Coronary Care Unit at St. Benedict’s Hospital in Ogden. Rosalie, or, “Musky,” was known as the go to nurse for difficult patients and impossible IV starts.
During the war, Rosalie lived with her sisters at Esther Hall. Soon she became smitten with a young soldier from New York. Anthony Muscolino was a handsome, charming Italian stationed in Ogden. Many a night they danced away at the Berthana and tagged along wherever her older sisters would drive them. When Tony had to leave Utah, the romance became a cross-country courtship. At last, they were married Jan. 29, 1953, at St. Henry’s Catholic Church, Brigham City, Utah.
Together, Tony and Rosalie raised seven children: Maria, Tina, Liz, Tony, Matt, Teri and Marci. Fabulous laundry technique was not only an essential knack; Rosalie found it a gratifying obsession. She loved to do laundry.
After an unfortunate car accident, Rosalie retired from nursing in 1982. Her days became focused on keeping an eye on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Reading, visiting and learning were Rosalie’s vices. She loved going to the Newgate Mall with Tony for morning coffee and visiting with important friends. Rosalie could meet someone once and learn much about them.
Books brought the world to her. She had many favorites she read over and over. A new chapter or a new book was very exciting to her because she wanted to learn as much as she could about people, places and religions everywhere.
Her faith and love for God was strong. She said the rosary every day. Rosalie also enjoyed sewing, an art she learned from her mother. Family cherished the holiday pillows Rosalie would create for everyone.
Rosalie’s favorite place to be was the Florida beach, “with white sand between my toes. I wish I could go there one more time with my family.”
Rosalie is survived by her sister, Vicenta Singh, Brigham, Utah; children: Maria Muscolino, Salt Lake City, Utah; Christine (Ernie) Vitello, Haymarket, Virgina; Elizabeth (Alan) Howard, South Ogden, Utah; Anthony Muscolino, Ogden, Utah; Matthew Muscolino, Centerville, Utah; Theresa (Mike) Campbell, Riverdale, Utah; and Marcella Charles, Layton, Utah; 11 grandchildren: Crystal, Christopher, Sean, Joshua, Joseph, Ashley, Nathan, Ryan, Jason, Marissa and Malinda; four great-grandchildren: Gabriel, Alayah, Jayce and Gage; and her beloved granddogs: Sophie, Curly, and Jack.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Anthony Muscolino; sisters, Mary (Abraham) Cervantes and Santos (Godfrey) Pommier; brothers, John (Donna and Helen) Singh, Marcelo Singh and Peter (Margarita) Singh; also by many close family and friends.
The family would like to thank Ashley, Marissa, Wes, Holly, Brenda and Dr. DeRemer from Summit Hospice who helped care for their mother and family.
Funeral Mass was held Monday, June 26, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ogden.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict, 104 Chapel Lane, St. Joseph, Minnesota, 56374
