Rosalind C. ‘Rosie’ Graveno of Downingtown
Rosalind C. “Rosie” Graveno, 76, of Downingtown, passed away on October 14, 2016 at Paoli Hospital.

A graduate of Downingtown High School, Rosie went on to open her own salon, Le Chalet of Style, in August of 1985, in Downingtown.

Rosie was a member of St. Anthony Lodge Ladies Auxiliary and a life-long member of St. Joseph parish, serving as captain of the bake sale booth at St. Joseph Festival for the past 8 years.
She is survived by her son, Brian (Susan) Graveno of Allentown; brothers Adam (Ruth Ann) Graveno of Franklin, TN and John (Traute) of Virginia Beach, VA and three grandchildren; Evan, Molly and Emily Graveno.
