December 24, 1935 ~ December 14, 2020 (age 84)


Rose Marie Cimino Navarro, 84, died on Monday, December 14, 2020 at Libby Care Center due to kidney failure (ESRD). She was born on December 24, 1935 at Bridgeport, Connecticut to Frank and Shirley Cimino.

Rose lived part of her life in Baltimore, Maryland, moved to North Carolina as a young woman and to Libby in 2002.  She enjoyed TV, shopping, animals, the beach, loved to bake pound cakes, crochet and to share.  She made and gave many blankets, placemats, winter scarves, hats and doilies to others. She loved to be friends with people and was a pen pal to many. 

Rose’s family often described her as “the little girl with the curl”, like the poem.  Her smile, hugs, and kisses would make a day even better.  No one could out give her.  Although she had little of value, she was satisfied to live that simple life, and always helped and made others happy.  She loved her family and the Lord, and served both well, now received and is resided with Jesus and family in heaven.

Rose was well cared for, and loved by the medical community in Libby and Kalispell.  She considered Libby Care Center her home and her extended family.  She will be missed by family and they look forward to being reunited with her, fully restored in health, smiling, arms stretched out, ready with that kiss and hug.  She was preceded in death by her husband Marcelino Navarro, her parents, siblings Frances, Mary Lou, and Ronnie.

Survivors include her sisters Brenda Slaughter, Libby; and Joyce Todd, Winston Salem, North Carolina.
