Rosemarie (Rosie) Costanza Terry

On April 21, 2024, Rosemarie Costanza Terry (Rosie) got her wings and went to walk with the angels. She was 79 years old.

Rosie was born on January 30, 1945, in Murray, Utah to Joseph J. Costanza and Frieda Filomena Aragone Costanza, she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years Robert S. Terry (Pete).

Rosie is survived by her three children, Toni, St. George, UT, Michelle (Chad), Scenic, AZ and Zakery (Andria), Woodland, WA. Rosie has 5 grandchildren (all girls) and 6 great grandchildren.

Rosie grew up in Draper, Utah and graduated from Jordan High School in 1963. Rosie worked numerous places in Draper, Utah, but her favorite was working at the Draper Drug Store with Dick Stowe. In 1981 Rosie and the family packed up and moved to Pocatello, Idaho where she enjoyed working for Revlon. Another home Rosie loved was Boise, ID as Pete excelled at Coca-Cola. Then it was off to Star Valley, WY to enjoy those retirement years, and finally Ivins, UT became their permanent home for 22 years, where she volunteered at the Catholic Thrift store. Rosie made lifelong friends wherever she went, she had a beautiful and kind soul, and that radiant smile was adored by all.

Rosie enjoyed golfing, she even got a hole in one, knitting, camping, especially at the annually Terry reunion, traveling with Pete (perks of working at Coca-Cola), baking and cooking delicious Italian food.

A special thanks goes out to The Retreat at Sunbrook Enhanced Care, St. George, UT you were all so kind to our mom, and became her family and friends.

In lieu of gifts and flowers, please donate to your local Enhanced Care facility and/or Dementia research.

A celebration of Rosie’s life will be held at a later date.
“A wife, a mother, a Nana too,
This is the legacy we have from you.

You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might
A stronger person would be hard to find
And in your heart, you were always kind
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just a wife not just a mother
For all of us you gave your best
Now the time has come for you to rest
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep”
