Rosemary Janisch

June 8, 1950 - January 9, 2018

Rosemary Janisch of Monroe, NY, passed away peacefully on January 9, 2018, at the age of 67.

The daughter of Michele and Mary Ann Maietta, Rosemary was born June 8, 1950, in the Bronx, NY. She married John Janisch on June 5, 1976, and together, they moved to Monroe to raise their two children, Jennifer and Jonathan. Rosemary was a devoted wife and mother. She lived for her family. When her health began to decline in the late 1990s, what kept her going were the milestones she didn’t want to miss: graduations, weddings, and most recently, the birth of her first grandchild. She lived to experience these important moments due to her remarkable strength, perseverance, and the love and support of her husband, who served as her primary caretaker.

Rosemary had an immense heart and an unconditional kindness that is rare in this world. She will never be forgotten; her family and friends will forever carry her memory.

She is survived by her husband, John Janisch; her daughter, Jennifer Messier, and son-in-law, Lucas Messier; her son, Jonathan Janisch, daughter-in-law, Jianmei Ni, and granddaughter, Ellie Janisch; her siblings, Angela Hopkins, Luigi Maietta, Michele Maietta, Anna Fratangelo, and Patsy Maietta, and their families; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and others, all of whom loved her deeply.

Visitation will be held on Monday, January 15, 2018, during the hours of 3:00 to 6:00 PM, at Flynn Funeral & Cremation Memorial Centers Inc., 139 Stage Road, Monroe, New York 10950.

My sympathy to all the family on the loss of your beautiful Roe. I had the pleasure of working with Roe in the Personnel Office at West Point. She was always smiling and never had an unpleasant word to say about anyone. I know she will be greatly missed. ✨

I was so fortunate to have Roe on my staff when I joined NAF at USMA. Erika, Ramona, Letty and Roe made up the team. Roe was the heart. Smart, strong, good natured, you'd never know the personal trials she was going through weekly. Never complained, always the positive energy for all of us. Her smile said it all, especially if the topic was her Family. Humble and caring. Very very smart and so good at her job. One of a kind. We were blessed to know her. Peace be with you Rosemary, may Eternal rest grant unto you, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon you and May you rest in peace. Amen.
