Rosalie J Hradsky

July 18, 1934 — November 29, 2023



Rosalie J Hradsky, a loving and kind soul, has left us to join the eternal realm. Born on July 18, 1934, in Brooklyn, New York, Rosalie's vibrant spirit touched the lives of those around her and created cherished memories that will endure for generations to come.


Rosalie epitomized unconditional love and acceptance. Her heart knew no boundaries, and she embraced everyone with warmth and compassion. She had a special affinity for her family, cherishing them deeply and creating lasting bonds through shared traditions. One such tradition was the joyous celebration of Christmas Eve, where Rosalie's love shone brightly as she showered her loved ones with happiness and togetherness.


Spending quality time with family was one of Rosalie's greatest pleasures. Whether it was decorating their home with festive cheer or embarking on exciting travel adventures together, she valued the closeness and connection found within familial bonds. Rosalie also found solace in quiet moments of reading and did so with enthusiasm. Her curiosity for knowledge continuously inspired her to explore new worlds through the pages of countless books.


An outgoing and fun-loving person, Rosalie had a marvelous sense of humor that brightened even the darkest of days. Her laughter was infectious, spreading joy wherever she went. She possessed a fondness for life's simple pleasures, relishing outings and dining at fine restaurants. Lobster held a special place in Rosalie's heart as a delicacy she savored on indulgent occasions.


Not only did Rosalie have impeccable taste in food but also in fashion. She took pride in being impeccably dressed at all times. Clothes and jewelry were not mere accessories to her but rather expressions of her elegant spirit, reflecting her impeccable eye for style.


But Rosalie's interests weren't limited to leisurely pursuits alone; she possessed an artistic flair as well. Delighting in creative endeavors like playing cards, knitting, and crocheting, she found fulfillment in bringing beauty into the world. Her talent and dedication were evident in the exquisite pieces she crafted with care.


Tragically, Rosalie departed from this world on November 29, 2023, peacefully at her home in Apopka, Florida. Although grief weighs heavily upon our hearts, we find solace in knowing that Rosalie's loving spirit lives on within the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her.


Rosalie is preceeded in death by her beloved husband John Hradsky and her parents, Mary and Dominick Napolitano, who guided her with wisdom and love throughout her life's journey.


Rosalie's nurturing spirit is survived by her children: Michael Viola and his wife Gladys Viola, Maria Viola, and Joseph Viola. Additionally, Annette Dimatteo Viola, daughter-in-law to Rosalie, was embraced as a cherished member of the family.


Rosalie will forever be remembered as a doting grandmother to Mike Viola Jr. and his wife Julia Johnson Viola, Liana Tyminski and her husband Keith Tyminski, Kimberly Viola, Alyssa Viola, and Alex Viola. These grandchildren were the pride and joy of Rosalie's life, drawing immense happiness from their accomplishments and milestones.


The circle of family expanded further with the arrival of great-grandchildren: Ella Tyminski, Liam Tyminski, Esme Viola, and Warren Viola. Rosalie adored these little ones wholeheartedly—each smile they bestowed upon her filled her soul with boundless love.


Rosalie shared an unbreakable bond with her brother Sam Napolitano and his wife Susan Napolitano. Through life's ups and downs, they remained pillars of support for one another. The loss reverberates through the hearts of nieces Kate Warf, Chrissy Esposito, and Annie Napolitano, as well as nephew Nick Napolitano. Rosalie's genuine love and care for her extended family knew no bounds.
