Obituary

Rosemarie A. Backes of White Plains, NY passed away peacefully on August 28, 2020 at the age of 73. She was born on March 30, 1947 in Mt. Vernon to August and Margaret (Leshnak) Piazza. She was raised in Eastchester and graduated from Eastchester High School in 1965. On February 7, 1970, Rosemarie married the love of her life, Michael G. Backes at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Scarsdale. She worked as a Clerk of the Justice Court in Scarsdale and enjoyed her time there until she decided to start a family in White Plains. In addition to her own three children, she helped raise countless others as a child care provider which was a passion of hers. As a long-time member of Rocky Ledge Swim Association, Rosemarie enjoyed many years spending quality time there with family and friends. Rosemarie was predeceased by her husband of thirty-six years in 2007. She was the beloved mother of her three children: Christine (Matthew) Brennan of Greensboro, NC, Catherine (Claudio) Valenzuela of West Harrison and Michael Backes of New York City and “Grandma Roro” to her grandchildren: Rebecca, Amanda and Jay. Rosemarie was the oldest of four children and is survived by her brother Natius (Darlena) Piazza of Villarico, Florida, sister Suzanne Piazza of New York City and sister Bernadette (Charles) Hunter of Rye. “Ro” as she was known to family and friends, was a kind and gentle soul who will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Memorial donations may be made to Calvary Hospital, 1740 Eastchester Road, Bronx, New York 10461.

"RoRo" was our first babysitter -- for our infant son, Eddie. RoRo was so kind and attentive, and the whole family was loving to Eddie, which we cherished. RoRo will always have a special place in our hearts. God bless you and keep you, dear RoRo.
