Obituary for Rosemarie Martinelli

Rosemarie Martinelli was called home on October 8th, 2020. She was born September 19th, 1928 in Portage to the late John & Frances (Lenhart) Gerlisky. Rosemarie is preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Louis (Jeno); her daughter, Diane Hearty; and her son, Randy Martinelli. Rosemarie is survived by her grandchildren: Todd (Angela) Hearty, Jennifer (Kevin) Kraft, Allison (Ryan) Petrusky, Shawn Martinelli and Brian (Courtney) Martinelli; sister Gladys Mutch, sister-in-law Rosella Howieson; she was Gram Gram to her numerous great-grandchildren; and her beloved dog, Bella. Rosemarie and her husband Jeno owned and operated the former Martinelli’s Restaurant in Lilly for 23 years. Rosemarie thoroughly enjoyed cooking and to many, made the best pizza in town. Other talents included painting, sewing, crocheting, gardening and hosting her annual yard sale with handcrafted items. She was incredibly social and especially enjoyed running into and catching up with old friends and customers. Rosemarie’s greatest passion was spending time with her grandchildren, whose lives she tremendously influenced. The grandchildren all admired her for her strength, confidence and wisdom. Rosemarie was always up for a challenge and took pride in doing things that no one thought she could. Rosemarie will truly be missed; however, we find comfort in knowing she reunited with her mother, husband, and children. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 14th, 2020 at 11 a.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church in Portage. Fr. Kevin Queally, Celebrant. Committal in St. Mary Cemetery in Portage. On-line condolences may be made at www.decortfh.com
