Rosine “Rose” Dorothy (Cascagne) Zampano, of Chula Vista, California, passed peacefully to be with our Lord on Monday 10 February, 2020. She was 97.

Rose was the wife of the late Peter Vincent Zampano, also of Chula Vista, with whom she celebrated 60 years of marriage. She was born in New Haven, Connecticut on 6 June 1922 and is the daughter of the late Salvatore and Antoinette (Muffa) Cascagne.
Over her lifetime, Rose’s talents and trades were many and varied. In her early years, she worked as a self-taught seamstress producing custom made draperies and slipcovers. During WWII, in support of the war effort, she worked as an assembler of lifeboats and life vests and in her later years, she became a certified geriatric Nursing Assistant and private duty caregiver, a profession she excelled at and one of which she was most proud.

Rose is the mother of Richard Vincent Zampano of North Branford, Connecticut and Teresa (Terri) Bratcher of Chula Vista, California and “mom” to her son-in-law Darin Bratcher. She is survived by two sisters, Anna Cascagne Iannotti (East Haven, CT) and Clementine Cascagne Nadeau (Amity, CT). She was preceeded in death by her brothers Anthony, Louis, Frank (Archie), and Gennaro (Jerry) Cascagne and her sisters Raffaela (Rae) Cascagne Caeti, Josephine Cascagne Muzkya and Mary Cascagne Perrella.

She is also survived by three grandchildren, Susan Zampano Hirsch, Richard Peter Zampano, and Jennifer Wesson-Zampano and one great-grandchild, Brayden Hirsch, all of Connecticut.
Rose loved her family, her friends, making good food and sharing good times. Profoundly grounded in her faith, she especially loved the Sunday visitations from her church and her Saturday night Lawrence Welk sing alongs.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the American Heart Association or the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

I feel very blessed to have known Rose. Even though our visits on Sunday mornings were brief, she always had a lot to share about the past and how it related to the present. Her love of God was always present and never wavered. I learned about perservering though her medical issues that never lessened her faith in Christ. May she rest in peace.

I can still hear her scratchy voice from when I was little. I am very sorry for your loss.

Teresa, Darin and Richard. Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. She will also be remembered in our hearts. She was kind, compassionate and always worried more about others than herself. I, personally, always enjoyed my telephone conversations with her after she moved to California. She never said good-bye without telling me that she loved all of us back here in Connecticut. I know the angels were there to welcome her. Love, Lauretta, Joe and Sister Ann
