Mrs Rosemary M. Obbagy

June 17, 1943 ~ August 23, 2022 (age 79)




Waterbury – Mrs. Rosemary (Rose) M. (Grosso) Obbagy, 79, passed away on Tuesday morning, August 23, at Shady Oaks Assisted Living in Bristol. She was the widow of John W. Obbagy, Jr.

Rosemary was born June 17, 1943 in Bridgeport, daughter of late Michael F. and Margaret (Dipronio) Grosso. Raised in Bridgeport she attended local schools and was a graduate of the Southern Connecticut State University. In 1980 the family moved to Waterbury. She had been employed with G-Fox and Filenes and became a licensed agent for The Hartford Insurance Company.

Rosemary cherished her family especially all her nieces and nephews. She loved going to the movies with her friends and meeting others for her T.A.B.S. dinners. She could spend hours at a Hallmark store looking for that perfect card. She will be greatly missed by her children and all who knew her.

Rosemary is survived by her daughter, Michelle Bruce and her husband Walter “Skip” of Bristol; two sons, John W. Obbagy and his wife Carol of Bethel and Brian M. Obbagy of Waterbury; one brother, Ronald Grosso of Stratford and her granddaughter, Nicole Bruce of Norwich and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband she is predeceased by her brothers, Michael and James Grosso.

The family would like to thank the owner Tyson Belanger and each and every staff member at Shady Oaks Assisted Living for their love, care and support they provided for Rosemary.
