Evelyn Turns 100!
Evelyn Goemans Rossi turned 100 years young on Sept. 30th. Rossi’s family gathered at “Roma View” in Howard Beach to celebrate the occasion. “It was an awesome gathering of family and friends,” Rossi’s daughter, Joanne Rossi Eckert said.” Rossi has three children, Joseph Rossi and wife Margie, Michael Rossi and wife Donna, daughter Joanne Eckert and husband Bob. She also has 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. “Evelyn is an inspiration of what real humility, love, patience, kindness, gentleness and forgiveness are all about. She has lost a husband, Camillo Rossi, and a daughter, Bernadette Rossi, and through it all, God has been her unending source of strength,” Eckert said. “She is an awesome lady and a role model of what God calls us to be like. May all of us trust in God, His Word and His unfailing love as much as Evelyn has. She’s awesome! We love her very much.”
Rossi has lived with Eckert and her husband, Bob, for nearly 22 years. “We will continue to care for her as long as God calls us to do so. At this time, I would like to offer some inspiration that I know my Mom would give, i.e., surrender your life to God, read your Bible and try to be more like Jesus, being loving and forgiving in all circumstances. God bless each and every one of you.”
