Born in Down­ing­town, she was the daugh­ter of the late Or­lando and Mar­garet (nee Muzii) Graveno.

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.
