Rose Marie (Turkovich) Mercadante, 71 of Baden, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 27, 2020 at Heritage Valley, Sewickley.
Rose Marie was the daughter of the late Francis and Dorothy (Enders) Turkovich. A ’67 graduate of Monaca High School, she stayed connected to her classmates all her life. She retired from Pediatric Alliance, Inc., where she worked as a Practice Manager. She also managed several other medical practices throughout her career.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald D. Mercadante on July 6, 2020, her stepson John Mercadante, and her step granddaughter, Meghan Mercadante.
Rose Marie will be sadly missed by her children, Stephen (Tina) Petterson and Heather (Ted) Dengel, her step children, Gary (Sharlene) Mercadante, Ron P. Mercadante, and Lisa Danylo, her grandchildren, Zachary, Isaiah, Severin, and Finnian, her step grandchildren, Jenna (Patrick), Colleen, Stephanie, Madison, Chuck, and Tori, her two sisters, Beverly (late George) Anderson and Diane (Dr. Robert) Knapp, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews and “the best dog”, Romeo. She will also be missed by numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law in the Mercadante family and the many dear friends from all aspects of her life who she cared about so deeply.
Rose leaves behind a legacy of statistically impossible casino winnings and vast medical advice. All that knew her has a story to tell and a good laugh to remember her by. She was generous, caring, and thought nothing of talking to everyone much to the chagrin of her family. “You’ll miss me when I’m gone.” – and now we do.
Per her wishes there will be no viewing or service.
Arrangements were entrusted to Simpson Funeral & Cremation Services, 1119 Washington Avenue, Monaca.
