PUBLISHED in Pueblo Chieftain, Pueblo, Colorado, March 22, 2000:

Benfatti, Rose Bacino

Rose Bacino Benfatti, born March 31, 1916, died March 13, 2000.

The families of Rose Bacino Benfatti buried her in Montebello, Calif., at Rose Hills Cemetery on March 18.

Born and raised in Pueblo, Rose left Colorado for California as a young bride. Although she never lived in Colorado again, every summer for some 60 years she would come to visit her family in Pueblo and spend four to six weeks in her parents' home.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Sebastiano "Chauncy"; her daughter, Klara Smith; parents, Vincenzo and Cologera Bacino; brothers Karl, Ben, Joe "Blackie," and Sam Bacino; sisters, Elizabeth "Betty" and Mary Bacino Zancanella; brother-in-law, Ernest Zancanella; sister, Josephine Bacino Carnelli, who ironically was born on the same day as Rose [two years earlier] on March 31, 1914 and also passed away on March 13, 2000.

She is survived by her daughter, Annette (Marty) Gevorkian; her brother, Tony (Kathy); her sister-in-law, Dorothy Bacino; nephews Charles, Jim and Father Ben Bacino; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Rose was a joy to all who knew her. Her cooking skills were the epitome of the Italian grandma and she loved nothing better than cooking a meal for her loved ones.

She will be missed.
