Rose Marie (Frasca) Andrus, 96, of Darien, CT went to be with the Lord on Good Friday April 19, 2019. Rose immigrated with her family from Italy when she was 9 years old. She became a master seamstress and wonderful homemaker for her family and late husband Clarence Norman Andrus. Their marriage lasted 68 years at the time of his passing in 2014. Their story was one read about in fairytales. He was an orphan boy who met his girl ice skating and they lived happily ever after.
Rose was one of 5 children to her late parents Joseph Ralph Frasca and Rosa Marie Frasca of Darien, CT.
Rose is survived by 3 beautiful daughters, Rose Lewis of Alaska, Norma Jordan of North Carolina and Joanne Sullivan of Stamford, CT. She is also survived by 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. She absolutely loved all children she ever met.
