    Rose DeMario, 88, formerly of Chittenango passed away Friday at the Crouse Community Center in Morrisville. Born in Linguaglossa Sicily Italy, Rose was a life resident of the North Chittenango and Kirkville area. She was a life time communicant of St. Patrick’s Church in Chittenango. She was a past member of the North Chittenango Fire Department Ladie’s Auxiliary and the Home Bureau. She also enjoyed bowling, canning from her garden and knitting. Her greatest accomplishment was her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
