Obituary

Penny J. Rossetti, 87, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on October 5, 2017 after suffering a stroke. She was born on July 2, 1930 in Cansano, Italy to Rocco and Elizabeth Rossetti.

Penny was preceded in death by her parents, Rocco and Elizabeth Rossetti, sister Angela Chioda, brother Vince Rossetti, nephews Rocky Rossetti, David Villani and brother-in-law Thomas Villani. She is survived by her sisters, Dora Villani, Mary Barnes and Diana Helbig and her dear friend Sister Marilyn Carpenter as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews and friends from Park Mayfair, Curves, Blue Bonnet Restaurant, Air Force Finance and Christ the King Catholic Church.

Penny came to the United States at 8 years of age and loved her new country. She attended Frederick High School and worked at the Air Force Finance Center for 45 years and was a long-time member of Christ the King Catholic Church.

Penny loved her God, family, church, the United States, friends and all children. She strongly believed in family and was always a good and faithful friend always willing to help and be there. Her smile, energy, love and funny wit will be greatly missed by many.

Mass of the Christian Burial will be at 10:00 am on Thursday, October 12th at Christ the King Catholic Church, 830 Elm Street, Denver, Colorado 80220.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial donations may be made on her behalf to the Diabetes Foundation, American Stroke Foundation or Christ the King Catholic Church.

Rest in Peace Sweet Angel. You will be greatly missed. This thoughtful poetry written by Mother Theresa reflects Penny's Life:

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, there may be jealousy;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
