That is how she was represented online and that suits Rosie perfectly. Rose Angel McNulty proved this every day of her life, but never so much as this past year.
She was born on July 6, 1979 and grew up fast. As a daughter of a single mom, life wasn’t always easy for Rosie, but that’s what made her the tough, independent woman we all know. Determined to succeed, she graduated with the class of 1997 with her three year old daughter on her hip. Rosie believed in tough love, honesty, and integrity. She said what she meant and meant what she said. She took pride in her work and excelled in everything she put her mind to.
After being diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer, Rosie decided to live the rest of her days on her own terms. Surrounded by her closest friends and family, Rosie pushed forward beyond what any earthly vessel could possibly endure, giving her daughters, sisters, mother, family, and friends as much of herself as she could squeeze out of this lifetime.
On January 8, 2021, our merciful Lord relieved her of her duty; relieved her of her pain, allowing her to finally rest in peace after a painful battle.
Rosie’s mom, Lenny, was a young woman when she had her, so her grandparents, Grant and Irene McNulty, Aunt Charlie, and Uncles Mike and PJ, all pitched in to help raise her.
Later, Lenny met Jerry Rodriguez, who loved and raised her as his own. Together, Lenny and Jerry gave her two sisters, Alicia and Jeri Lynn. Jerry remained a solid father figure and friend throughout Rosie’s whole life.
Lenny then had two sons, Sean Patrick and Grant Kyler, and Jerry added a stepsister, Logan. Just this summer it was discovered that Steven Sullivan was Rosie’s biological father, fulfilling one of Rosie’s last wishes. With Steven’s daughter, Candida, Rosie’s total number of siblings stands at six.
Rosie then had her own angels, Mykayla and Addison. Mykayla then gave Rosie the greatest gift a daughter can give her mom, a grandbaby, Natalya Rose Conception. These three girls meant the world to Rosie, and truly were the joy of her life.
After Rosie got sick, her mom Lenny gave a 100 percent of her time making sure Rosie was well taken care of, for that we love and thank you.
One of Rosie’s biggest comforts was knowing that soon she would be reunited with Grandpa Grant, whom she missed so much, along with Grandpa Jose Rodriguez, Auntie Charlie, PJ’s son, Kyler, and many others who have passed before her.
With love, Rosie leaves behind: her daughters and granddaughter, Mykayla, Addison, and Natalya; her dogs, Charlie and Baby; her grandmothers Irene McNulty, and Rosella Rodriguez; her siblings and their families; Alicia, Jeri Lynn, Sean, Grant, Logan, and Candida; her uncles, Mike, PJ, and Chuck; her cousins and their families; Mitch, Alex, and David; her Dad Jerry, Stepdad Brian, and Steven; her lifelong friends, Mark, Trisha, Summer, Steph, Linea, and so many others.
So much love, so little time…rest in peace, Rose Angel.
