Rosa Dell’Oso Memorial Scholarship

Rosa Dell'Oso

Rosa and her family came to the United States from Italy in 1956. During her life, she worked for Slim Fit Dress Company, Deluca Pasta and Derby Manufacturing. Her favorite job was custodian at Great Oak Middle School where you would find her "boombox" playing Italian music with her 4' 10" frame on a chair singing and cleaning windows. The "petite spit-fire" also loved the casino, her game shows and scratch tickets.
