Obituary of Rosemary Necci

Rosemary Necci, 80, of Howell, New Jersey passed away peacefully on Friday, March 6, 2020 at home with family by her side.  She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and settled in Howell in 1971 with her childhood sweetheart Philip.  As an all-city high school athlete, Rosemary participated in track & field, and showcased her passion for competition.  Rose, as she liked to be called by her family and friends, was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.  She was a diehard Giants and Yankees fan; and extremely passionate about being involved with Pop Warner and Howell Little League.  Her summers were spent by the pool, and rainy days were eclipsed by Bud Abbott & Lou Costello classics.  Rose adored dancing, music, and telling stories.  As an avid family woman, Rose thrived as a Homemaker.  She planned many family trips to Walt Disney World, and smiled most when surrounded by her grandchildren. 

Rosemary was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Emily Fischetti; sister, Phyllis Sacco; brother-in-law, Joe Necci; and sister-in-law, Carmela Necci.  Rosemary is survived by her beloved husband of 60 years, Philip Necci of Howell; sons, Philip Necci Jr. and his wife, Karen of Jackson, and John Necci of Howell; grandchildren, John, Anthony and his fiancée Christina, Nicole and her partner Harry, Taylor, Julia, and Drew; niece, Diana Flippo; nephew, Joseph Necci Jr.; and many loving nieces and cousins.
