It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Rosemary Nericcio Peck, on August 4, 2019 just several months short of her 84th birthday. She was the widow of the late Richard H. Peck of Cromwell and the daughter of the late Joseph and Mary (Szankovics) Palma. The greatest joy in her life was to be a mother and then a grandmother and a great grandmother. Her family was the most important thing in her life.
She will be dearly missed by her children: Debbie (Fred) Wolf of Colchester; Donna Little of Cocoa, FL; Alfred Nericcio, Jr. of Liberty, NC and Mary (Steve) Boyce of Liberty, NC
Her grandchildren and great grandchildren: Heather (Derek) Little Gilbert and their children Sloan and Dane; Jenny Morton and Adrianna, April Wolf, Matthew and Stephanie Johnson. Her stepchildren: Gregory (Felise) Peck of Georgia; Richard (Maria) Peck of Cromwell and Susan Peck Graham of Maine and (8) step- grandchildren and (2) step- great grandchildren. Her beloved sister-in-laws, Dolores Peck and Lorraine Peck and many long time friends, nieces and nephews. She will also be missed by her furbaby, Willie the fat cat. In addition to her husband and parents she was predeceased by her beloved brother, Harold Szankovics, her stepson, David Peck and several brother and sister-in-laws and her former husband and father of her children, Alfred Nericcio, Sr.
She worked at the former Colchester Convalescent Home in the housekeeping department until her retirement. She made many good friends while there Anita, Suzanne, Harriet, Linda, Nancy, Pat, Beverly, Phyllis, Sue, Joanne, Betty, Betsy, Sandy, Barbara, and Diane. They continued to get together for their monthly retiree's lunch that she greatly enjoyed and looked forward to attending. She also had a smile and a kind word for everyone she met. Her words of wisdom were " You get more with honey than with vinegar". She was a great friend and she had many long time friends that she kept in touch with for many years. Many of her friends were like sisters to her. One was her childhood friend, Jeannie Gress, that she met in 3rd grade and they became fast friends and their friendship lasted to the present. She also was very close to Philomena Tyrseck, Joan Gleason, Jean Haggerty and Mary Vachon with whom she shared many laughs, tears, lunches, vacations and life adventures.
The funeral will be held on Saturday, August 24th at 11 AM at St. Andrews Church in Colchester with visiting hours from 10-11 AM at the church. Burial will be in the Marlboro Cemetery in Marlborough, CT at 2:30 pm.
