Obituary

Rosaline Louise Titone (née Miccio) died peacefully at her home surrounded by family and friends on October 12, 2022. Rosaline was born on November 27, 1931 in Philadelphia, PA.  She was one of seven children and grew up in West Trenton, New Jersey in an Italian neighborhood. On February 23, 1952, she married the love of her life, Charles (Charlie) Titone.  They were introduced (on a blind date) by a mutual friend, Irene, who was her co-worker at the Chase Aircraft Company and was also Charlie’s sister-in-law’s sister.  Rosaline worked at the Chase Aircraft Company which made cargo planes used during the Korean War. They honeymooned in Cuba and Miami Beach, Florida for two months.  After their honeymoon, they settled into their new home in Burlington, New Jersey, which was built by Charlie’s father, Joseph Titone and his brother, Andrew Titone, as a wedding gift to the newlyweds. Rosaline led a beautiful life with her husband of more than 70 years and raised six children in their home on Jacksonville Road in Burlington. Rosaline was affectionately nicknamed Nana, Roz, Roe, Mrs. Titone, and Mom. She worked as a lunchroom mom at Saint Paul’s school in Burlington and Saint Joseph’s school in Beverly, where several of her children attended grammar school.  She was also a PTA mom.  Rosaline was known for her delicious home-made Italian meals and there was always “room for one more” at her table. Rosaline was known for her sense of humor, snarkiness, and her ability to “tell it like it is.”  She cherished every second she was able to spend with her family and set an example of commitment and faithfulness for her children and grandchildren through her unending love with her husband, Charlie. In an interview she gave to one of her grandsons, a journalist who saw the importance of documenting family history, she described her life with Charlie as “two pumpkins in a pumpkin patch”. As time went on, she found joy in watching over her grandchildren at her home, playing board games while babysitting them and cooking them meals; pastina was always a favorite. Later in life, she was blessed to be able to visit with her two great-grandchildren, Sophie and Jack, in the same house she raised her own children decades earlier. Her favorite hobbies were playing scrabble with Charlie, doing puzzle books, jigsaw puzzles, reading non-fiction books, and working on beautiful cross stitch projects which she gave away as gifts to her family. Rosaline is survived by four children:  Joseph Titone and his wife Sheri, Robert Titone and his wife Vicky, Jeannie Kirchner and her husband Jim, and Mary Muscavage and her husband Greg.  She is also survived by ten grandchildren:  Sara and Summer Titone, Drew Titone and Rachael Titone-Bauwens, Jennifer Titone and Natalie Titone-White, Julia Kirchner-Jahr and William Kirchner, Nicholas and Kaylee Muscavage, two great-grandchildren, Sophie Jahr and Jack Bauwens, as well as her caregivers:  Artence, Gloria, Winsome, Christine, Camay and Marcia who, although not family, became family and close friends to her through their love, dedication, gentle heart-felt care and companionship. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Charles, her two sons, William (Billy) and Charles (Chucky), her parents, Guglielmo and Madeline Miccio, her siblings, Arthur Miccio, Joseph Miccio, Theresa Miccio-Tucci, Mary Miccio-DiGiulio, and Edward Miccio. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Services and interment will be private.  In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made in Rosaline’s name to Saint Jude’s Children Hospital and/or Wounded Warrior Project.
