Obituary of Roseann Trombley
Roseann Trombley, 78, peacefully went to be with the Lord on January 8, 2023. Roseann was born July 20, 1944 to John and Helen Lesic (both deceased) in Pittsburg, PA. Roseann, her parents, and her sisters, Patty and Kathy, moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1955. Roseann graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1962. She met her future husband Michael and many lifelong friends during her school years.
She married Michael in 1963 and they had two children, Lori and Todd. She was a dedicated homemaker and volunteer with St. Vincent de Paul School and Church. Her volunteer work led to her becoming a vital contributor to the development of Parish Data Systems in 1978, a church management software company. Roseann worked for PDS until she retired in 2007.
Roseann loved her family dearly. She was an exceptional caregiver to Michael prior to his passing in 2006. Roseann was an amazing mother and grandmother. She was artistic, generous, and good-hearted. She loved to cook, bake, and garden. She especially loved her roses. Roseann truly enjoyed entertaining family and friends. She and Michael built a cabin in Forest Lakes, Arizona in the early 1970’s and spent a great deal of time there.
In 2010, Roseann was diagnosed with dementia. Her condition led to advanced Alzheimer’s, which ultimately lead to her passing. The family wishes to thank those who continued to visit and remember Roseann even as her disease progressed.
A Committal service will be held at Holy Redeemer Cemetery on Thursday, January 26th, at 10:00 AM. Additionally, a Celebration of Life will be held in the Brooks Room at Rio Vista Recreational Center in Peoria, AZ on January 28th from 2:00 – 4:00pm.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or St. Mary’s Catholic High School in Phoenix, Arizona.
