Rose Mary Larimer, age 79 of Warren, died Monday, January 28, 2019 surrounded by her loved ones at Ascension Park Hospital in Novi, Michigan. She was born September 2, 1939 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, daughter of the late Pietro and the late Catherine (nee: Debarberi) Tavormina.

Rose was the beloved wife of the late William "Bill" who preceded her in death in 2014. She was the loving mother of Cathy (Tim) Carnacchi and Lori Larimer. Cherished grandmother of Patrick, Isabella, Nicholas, Noah, Tim (Heather) Jr., Marcus, and Tyler. Dearest sister of Gerlando (Joann) Tavormina, Pietro (the late Janis) Tavormina, the late Pasquale (the late Louise) Tavormina, the late Anthony Tavormina, and the late Joseph Buccieri.

Rose was a loving, caring, generous person with a big heart who loved spending time with her family. She had many hobbies including shopping, gardening and enjoyed watching The Golden Girls and Judge Judy. Some of her favorite places to visit included Frankenmuth, Cedar Point, and the annual Women's Show in Novi. She began her career at Kmart and opened the first store, #4000, in Garden City, MI., where she had the honor to be voted the Kmart Queen for their annual parade in 1970. Rose married Bill in 1975 and they raised two beautiful daughters, Cathy and Lori. Rose went on to earn her Masters Degree in Human Resource Management in 2008.
