Rosemary Giglio Nuss, age 94, a native of New Orleans, passed away on All Souls Day, Saturday, November 2, 2019, peacefully with her dear nieces by her side. She was born June 9, 1925 to Joseph Anthony Giglio and Rose Calamia Giglio Owens in New Orleans. She is preceded in death by her sister and best friend, Mayme Giglio Delpidio and Louis Anthony Giglio, Sr. Rosemary was the proud Aunt to Susan Gowland (Paul), Michael Giglio (Kim), Barry Giglio, Gail Giglio LaRocca (Gerald) and Brian Giglio and the late Louis Anthony Giglio, Jr. She was the great aunt to Christopher Stromboe (Katie), Gina McCarthy (Joe), Anthony Giglio, Cristina Marjorie Giglio, Andrew Dominick Giglio, Joseph Anthony Giglio (Stephanie), Dominic Anthony LaRocca and the late Michael Andrew Giglio. She worked at the Fountainblue and Roosevelt Hotel for many years and after retiring, she enjoyed cooking, shopping endlessly through the night, playing cards and frequent trips to the casino, including Las Vegas many times. Her favorite holiday was Christmas, as she enjoyed wrapping and giving many gifts to her family and especially for the little ones. Rosemary was known to all who knew and loved her, as “Nanny”! In Rosemary’s honor, please wear or accessorize with animal print, as it was her favorite. We would like to thank the entire staff at Metairie Healthcare for taking great care of our precious little Nanny for the past five years, as she was happy to have met so many wonderful friends there. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Mass on Friday, November 8, 2019 in the Gerard L. Schoen, Jr. Chapel of Jacob Schoen & Son, 3827 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70119 at 1:00 PM. Friends may visit after 11:00 AM. Private interment will follow for Mayme and Rosemary in Metairie Cemetery.
