Rose Marie Nigara
September 9, 1921 – November 24, 2014
Obituary

Rose M. Nigara has been actively involved in Our Lady of the Valley’s parish (located in Orange, NJ) for approximately sixty years. She is known for her warm smile and her willingness to be in God’s Service. One of her strong characteristic is her faith in God and her devotion to Mary, the Blessed Mother.

Rose was born in Newark, NJ in 1921. She was educated by the nuns of Saint/Mother Cabrini’s Order at St. Anthony’s Orphanage in North Arlington, NJ. Upon graduation from high school in 1939, she attended Manhattan College in New York where she received certification in advanced stenography.

Utilizing her stenographic skills, Rose has an extensive employment history spanning over fifty years: Administrative Secretary to the Department Chief of Western Electric, (Kearny): Columbus Hospital, (New York): the Law Firm of Cox & Walburg, (Newark). After twenty-two years working as the Executive Secretary to the Superintendent of the West Orange Public Schools, she retired in 1986.

Rose is affiliated with a host of organizations sharing her time, talents, and treasures. She has been a member of the Rosary Society for fifty-eight years and correctly serves as Secretary for the Rosary Society at Our lady of the Valley. She is also a member of the Health & Wellness Ministry; The Linus Organization, West Orange Police Athletic League, and the West Orange First Aid Squad, Inc.

Rose embraces good stewardship with vigor. She has devoted over a half of a century of service to Our Lady of the Valley. As an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, she visits the housebound and patients in nursing homes. She prepares the communion vessels before and after masses; assists with the beautification of the church. As a Rosarian, she has dedicated daily recitation of the rosary to Our Lady; leads the rosary at masses daily in addition to the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.

As a result of Rose’s genuine interest in every one she meets, her generosity has enabled many individuals and families in need of assistance whether it’s financial or preparing a hot meal for the homeless. In addition to her numerous contributions, she finds time to knit and crochet warm blankets for children afflicted with cancer in various hospitals.

Rose takes great pride in her family. She was married to the late Anthony Nigara in 1946. From their union, she had three sons, Vincent (LuAnn), Robert (Marie), and John (Rebecca). She is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Rose is a humble person who spreads the love of God gracefully. She is an inspiration to many parishioners; encouraging others to intensify their involvement as servants of God. A virtuous woman who sets an example by living the Catholic faith. She maintains a full schedule of community building- building a community of God.

[JR: As a fat old white guy injineer, who’s Mom was an expert steno and who made me take steno as one of the courses in my high school summer session — she’d do anything to keep me out of trouble — didn’t work — I’d say this fellow alum was into crypto and “computer science” before it was known. Requiescat In Pacem!  ]
