Rose Marie Salvagni

January 17, 2013

Rose Marie Salvagni, 81, of Canajoharie, passed away peacefully early Thursday morning on January 17, 2013 at Ellis Hospital. She was surrounded by the love and care of her family.

Those of who knew Rose Marie knew that she was loving, warm-hearted, and truly one-of-a-kind. Rose Marie was born on June 29, 1931 and was a graduate of Canajoharie High School. She married the love of her life, Rudolph Salvagni, on August 29, 1951.

Rose Marie owned and operated Ernie's Bar & Grill in Canajoharie for 25 years and retired in 1984. She was very dedicated to her business, employees, and all of her beloved customers. Rose Marie loved to cook daily specials for her customers and family alike. Her greatest accomplishments did not come from her hard work as owner of Ernie's Bar & Grill but as her well-known role of Queen of the family. She devoted every possible moment to her family and was a world-class Wife, Mother, Nana, and Aunt.

Rose Marie's personality, wit, and charm have left a mark on all of those who were able to be a part of her life. She was notorious for having her one true love, Rudolph, pay ten-cents to dance with her at Sherman's or to sing a sweet tune to some of her favorites, such as: Bobby Vinton, Tony Bennett, and Frank Sinatra. She was also never shy to give a helping hand or to reminding everyone that she was truly the boss. The love and support she provided throughout her years could never be forgotten.

Rose Marie Salvagni was predeceased by her parents, Ernest and Virginia Ianniello; and brother and sister-in-law, Angelo and Ella Mae Ianniello.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Rudolph Salvagni; daughter, Sherri Hodge (David); grandchildren, Joshua Hodge (Lindsey) and Ryan Hodge; niece, Suzanne Van Orsouw (John); and nephews, Michael Ianniello and Shaun Van Orsouw. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends that were all loved dearly.

Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canajoharie Volunteer Fire Department, PO Box 28 Canajoharie, New York 13317.

On behalf of her family, to our dearest, Rose Marie:

Roses are red, my love, violets are blue. Sugar is sweet, my love, but not as sweet as you.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Lenz & Betz Funeral Home, 69 Otsego Street, Canajoharie, New York.
