Rosemary “Roe” Caronia

May 27, 1956 ~ February 11, 2024

Rosemary “Roe” Caronia, born Rosemary Lacava on May 27, 1956, in Watertown, NY passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on February 11, 2024, in Vero Beach, Florida. 


During Catholic school she met the love of her life and future husband of forty-six years, Frank Caronia Jr. and together they raised three beautiful children, Frank III, Christopher and Christine. 


Rosemary graduated from Spring Valley High School in 1974. Following high school, she completed cosmetology school and shortly after started her first business in hair design and styling. She also operated a successful home daycare for many years. However, her true passion was being a dedicated homemaker, caring for her family.


Rosemary is survived by her loyal son Christopher Caronia and his wife Sarah, her loving daughter Christine O’Brien along with her husband Kevin, her devoted daughters-in-law Valerie and Ashlie, seven grandsons named Nicolas, Christian, Dominic, Caleb, Grayson, Gabriel and Nolan with one granddaughter named Maeve, along with many friends she made throughout her life. 


She was preceded in death by her husband Frank Caronia Jr, her oldest son Frank Caronia III and both her parents George and Laura Lacava.


In her leisure time, Rosemary found joy in painting and in the company of her pet dogs, most recently Indiana Jones. Her legacy of love and warmth will forever be cherished by those who knew her.


A private family service was held to honor and remember Rosemary Caronia.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
