Obituary of Rose Prisco
Rose Prisco (nee Esposito), a longtime Madison resident, passed away on June 3, 2018 surrounded by her family at Morristown Medical Center. She was 84.
Rose was born in Morristown on September 29, 1933 to the late Pellegrino and Angelina Esposito.

In 1973 tragedy struck the family when Rose’s husband, Generoso, died suddenly. Rose would be responsible for raising 9 young children, a seemingly impossible task.
