Rosemary Oreskovich

Rosemary Isabelle Oreskovich, 86, of Grant Town, passed away Thursday (April 24, 2014) at Fairmont General Hospital.

She was born in Fairmont, on April 25, 1927, daughter of the late Nelson and Marguerite Greaser Sebold.

Rosemary was a graduate of St. Peter’s Catholic School and Fairmont State College. She was a lifetime member of the former St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Grant Town and most recently of St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church in Fairmont.

Surviving are her husband of 58 years, Steve Oreskovich, and son Mark and wife Theresa (Scafella) Oreskovich of Bruceton Mills. She is also survived by sister-in-law Ann and husband Bill Emery and sister-in-law Julie Oreskovich all of Fairmont; sister-in-law Katie and husband Ron Derner of Glendale, Ariz.; and an aunt, Mary Martha (Sebold) Miller of Oakland, Md.; along with many nieces and nephews and great- and great-great-nieces and nephews. Additionally, she leaves two godchildren, Susan (Sebold) Schmidt and Carla (DellaMea) Luketic, and one very special nephew and niece, Charles and Debbie Davis of Fairmont, who assisted greatly with her care during her final time with us.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by brothers, Joe and wife Martha Sebold, and Jack and wife Audrey Sebold; in-laws Joseph and Mande Oreskovich; sister-in-law Dorothy and husband Andy Laya; brothers-in-law George, Dan and John Oreskovich and Joe Frost. Also preceding her were some very special cousins Jim Fox, Bob Greaser, Nancy Ann (Greaser) McGreevy and Mary Jo (Sebold) Cowan and nephew Mike Sebold.

The family would like to thank the caring staffs at Ruby Memorial Hospital, Genesis-Pierpont Center and Fairmont General Hospital for the thoughtful care and respect she was given during her final days. To list each caregiver would be daunting but know that the family will always remember each of you and prays that God continues to bless you in the difficult work that you do.

Friends may call at Ross Funeral Home, 801 Fairmont Ave., Fairmont, from 2-8 p.m. on Sunday with a vigil service at 7:30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Monday at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church with Father Robert A. Perriello as Celebrant. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation in her memory be made to the charity of your choosing.
