Rose Mary (Ciancio) Faciana, 97, passed away on Wednesday, February 13, 2013.
She was born on Saturday, March 27, 1915 in Chicago, Illinois to Carmen and Carmella Ciancio and was the second daughter in a large family of 7 brother and sisters. Rose lost her mother at the young age of 17.
Rose did not have a formal education, but she was always striving to learn. She obtained her cosmetology license at a young age and worked in New York City and Chicago.
She married Anthony Faciana on Sunday, July 31, 1938.
They eventually moved to California in 1948, settling in the areas of Montebello and Whittier, Calif. By this time they had four children and although Tony continued to work hard she encouraged him to finish his education and together they built a successful accounting business.
Rose was especially proud of her Italian heritage and enjoyed cooking many family recipes.
Rose moved to Santa Maria in 1982 to be near her daughter, Roberta and her family.
Mrs. Faciana is survived by her sons, Richard A. Faciana, of Penn Valley, Ca., and Paul Faciana, Yorba Linda, Ca., daughter, Roberta (Faciana) La Rocco, of Santa Maria, Ca.
She was preceded in death by her husband of almost 30 years, Anthony Faciana, and her baby boy, Robert Joseph, who passed away in 1949 and all her brothers and sisters.
