Rose Theresa Robustelli Carbonaro

LEXINGTON — Rose Theresa Robustelli Carbonaro, 91, of Thomasville, NC, passed away on June 9, 2013 at Thomasville Medical Center after a sudden illness.

The visitation will be held at Davidson Funeral Home, 301 N. Main St. Lexington, NC on Wednesday June 12, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. The funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, 619 S. Main St. Lexington on Thursday June 13, 2013 at 11a.m. Father Al Gondek will be officiating.

Rose was born 12/23/1921 to Carmine and Concetta Robustelli in Ozone Park, NY. She married Joseph Stanley Fedziuk on June 27, 1943, who preceded her in death. She later married Pasquale Carbonaro on January 19, 1975, who also preceded her in death. She made her living as a seamstress and later as a central supply tech at the Northport VAMC on Long island, NY before retiring at the age of 79.

She is survived by her 4 children- Frank Fedziuk and wife Marge, Annmarie Burns and husband Ken, Patricia Darienzo and husband Richard, Bernadette Fedziuk and husband Dr. Phillip Marks. She is also survived by 9 grandchildren - Michelle Jackman (Tom), Mark Fedziuk (Jen), Paul Burns (Jill), Christopher Burns (Heather), Ryan Burns (Tina), Gabrielle Darienzo, Ricky Darienzo, Ava Marks and Daniel Marks; 8 great-grandchildren - Matthew and Kaitlyn Fedziuk, Thomas and Owen Jackman, Zoe and Kylie Burns, Caleb and Emmalyn Rose Burns.

Rose moved to Lexington NC in October 2000 and was well received by the community. In addition to helping with her grandchildren, she was a member of Our Lady of the Rosary and volunteered at Lexington Memorial Hospital. For someone who claimed to not like the south, she was surely well loved and received by just about everyone who met her. She was a very special lady with great spunk and good humor. She leaves behind memories of her clownish personality and her most delicious Italian cooking.

The family would like to extend sincere thanks and gratitude for all who loved Rose, considered her a friend, mother, or grandmother, and helped take care of her as her health declined: Dr. Arnold, Dr. Riggan, Carolina Cardiology, Dr. Hawkins, Drs. Lance and Smith, Dr. Caillat and staff at Davidson Urology, Dr. Sheldon and staff at Carolina Senior Care, staff and friends at LMH, ED and ICU staff and NICS service at TMC, Davidson County ambulance and rescue squad; her friends at Mt. Moriah and Piedmont Crossing, especially Mary and Gloria; friends from Our Lady of the Rosary especially Alice (our angel), Helen (communion server), Kathy, Marie, Anita and Linda. We would also like to thank the ladies at Lavish Salon, especially Amy Gibson and at Bellezza Tempo Lee Hedrick.

The family will receive friends after the burial at 1 p.m. at Salisbury National Cemetery on Thursday at the home of Bernadette Fedziuk and Phillip Marks.

Memorials can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project or NC Special Olympics or any nonprofit organization of donor’s choice.
