ROSE M. RICO (nee Baudo) age 92, beloved wife of the late Stephen; loving mother of Stephen, John (wife Marian), Rose Dombos (husband Jay), Frank (fiancé Susan Fabel), Joseph (wife Kellie), Robin Bradley (husband Bill), Richard (wife Lorie), Michael (wife Deborah), and James (wife Alice); devoted grandmother of 28 and great-grandmother of 12; cherished daughter of the late Joseph and Rose (nee Miraglina) Baudo; dearest sister of the late Vincent, Peter, Msgr. Frank Baudo, Mary Stanek and Joseph Baudo; dear aunt and great-aunt of many.
Rose was born on November 5, 1927 in Bellaire, Ohio and passed away on August 6, 2020. She was a resident of Richmond Heights since 1960, formerly residing in Cleveland. She graduated from Wheeling, West Virginia School of Nursing, worked as a registered nurse in Richmond Heights, and especially loved working in the ER and OB Departments at Richmond General. Rose was a member of St. Felicitas Catholic Church, now St. John of the Cross Catholic Church, where she was involved in several prayer groups.
Prayer was of central importance to Rose. She took several spiritual pilgrimages to Medjugorje and helped support the mission there. Rose enjoyed playing piano and watching the Cleveland Indians. She loved telling stories to her grandchildren. She will be remembered most as an outgoing, caring, humble, selfless, and hard-working woman with a great sense of humor who was loved and respected by many. Devoted to her family and her faith, Rose will be greatly missed. Her laughter and loving spirit will live on in all who knew her.
The Rico Family is most grateful for the wonderful care our Mom received from the Visiting Angels: Angela, Nadine, and Mary, and special caregivers Kathy and Laurie.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of Rose to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine, 21281 Chardon Rd., Euclid, OH 44117.
