On a cool Wednesday morning, February 16, at 6:35am Rosalynd A  DiScipio was called home to paradise.   She passed peacefully at home with family at her side.   For many years Rose was trapped in a body that did not listen, due to a progressive neurological disease, however, Rose is free of these earthy shackles and flying with angels.  
Without a doubt, she was met by her lover, Joseph A DiScipio, who passed in 2008, and her parents Tony and Betty Yacapraro as well as many other friends and relatives that were eagerly awaiting her arrival.    
Rose was born in Wayne County in May of 1941, she graduated nursing school and married Joseph in September of 1963.   They leave 5 children, Denise DiScipio, Vincent (Barbara) DiScipio, Katherine DiScipio Theresa DiScipio, and Maryrose DiScipio As well as 8 grandchildren, William (Yue) Taylor, Lindsey Flack, Regina (Sam) DiScipio-Vanni. Angela DiScipio, Dominic DiScipio, Rebecca DiScipio, Joseph Tomkins, and Thomas  DiScipio. they also leave 5 great grandchildren, Melvina, Ethan, Jupiter, Deklynn, and Ellyott.
Rose worked for many years with the developmentally disabled as the director of nursing at the Gruder Foundation.   She was also the nurse for Ida Sue, where she retired from the workshop in 2003
Rose leaves many behind who will mourn for the absence she leaves however, she would not wish you to dwell in the sorrow, but celebrate the life. While here, Rose loved spending time with family and her grandchildren, she also enjoyed music, old movies and musicals.   She traveled frequently to the beaches of the Outer Banks and enjoyed watching the ocean.   Trips to the zoos, museums, and aquariums were also a favorite past time.   She also enjoyed ice cream immensely.   She will be greatly missed.
