Rosemarie Gallopini

May 8, 2019

Rosemarie Gallopini, 85, of Copiague passed away on May 8, 2019 after 
suffering a massive stroke. Her children and several of her 
grandchildren were by her side just before her passing. Rosemarie was 
born and raised in Lynbrook to Fanny and Joseph Carlo and had one sister 
Patricia deceased (Alan) Fernez. She attended Malvern High School where 
she met the love of her life Albert Gallopini Jr. who passed in 2001. 
Together Roe and Al raised five children, Cecilia (Frank) Troici, Joseph 
(Ellen) Gallopini, Carol (Bruce) Phillips, Robert (Pamela) Gallopini, 
and Lisa Rose. She is also survived by an impressive group of eleven 
grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren with an eighth on the way 
this summer. She was a wonderful cook and nothing brought her more joy 
than the noise around a table filled with her spaghetti, meatballs, home 
baked bread, and her signature antipasto.  Rosemarie was an avid 
collector of antiques and spent many years buying and selling antiques 
in the family business, Gallopini Jewelers of Lynbrook. She was also a 
talented gardener and loved caring for her garden, houseplants and 
flowers. She enjoyed league bowling, playing cards with friends, and 
occasional trips to Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Rosemarie was a devout 
Catholic, who spent many years attending Holy Name of Mary parish in 
Valley Stream and in recent years Saint Rose of Lima in Massapequa
