Rose Lucy Carnazzola Celebration of Life

Rose Lucy Carnazzola, a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and Master Ceramicist, passed away peacefully on July 22, 2023. Her departure leaves a void in our hearts, but her legacy of love, creativity and compassion will forever shine in our cherished memories.

Born to Frances and Evelino Bernardara on July 28, 1938, in Detroit, Michigan, Rose’s journey was marked by dedication and an unwavering commitment to her family and passions.

At a young age, Rose discovered her love for gardening, knitting and crochet, but it was in the world of ceramics and porcelain that she truly found her calling. With boundless energy, hard work and an eye for detail, Rose honed her skills and earned the title of Master Ceramicist. Her pieces touched the lives of many, leaving an indelible mark in the hearts of those that admired her artistry.

In 1954, Rose married the love of her life, Amerigo Carnazzola, and together they embarked on a remarkable journey of love and companionship for an incredible 68 years. Their bond was an example of a love that endures through time, serving as an inspiration to their children and grandchildren.

Rose is survived by her husband, Amerigo, her two children Amerigo E. and Louise M. and her son-in-law Alan J. Gotcher. Her devotion to her family extended to her grandchildren, Brian, Derick, Lana and Jenna, and great-grandchildren, MacKinley, Reagan, and Kristoffer all of whom brought immense joy to her life.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made in Rose’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association (, as this cause was meaningful to her.

As we bid farewell to Rose, we find solace in knowing that her ceramics and the love she shared will forever be etched in our lives. May she find eternal peace surrounded by the beauty of nature.

“She is clothed in strength and dignity.” Proverbs 31:25
