Rosalie Carter Obituary

Rosalie C. Carter, age 81, of McKeesport, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on March 24, 2024.  Born July 5, 1942, in McKeesport, she was the daughter of the late Louis J. and Vida M. (Laughner) Canova and wife of the late Duane H. Carter, Sr.

Rosalie was a beloved member of the Mary, Mother of God Parish, St. Patrick Church, where she dedicated her life to serving her community as an active member of the Christian Mothers, a Eucharistic Minister, and a devoted teacher of Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults classes.

She was not only a devout member of her parish but also the pillar of her family.  As the family matriarch, she selflessly cared for her parents, in-laws, and children, while also playing an instrumental role in raising and nurturing her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Her love and compassion knew no bounds, and her presence brought light and warmth to all who knew her.  Her legacy of love, faith, and service will continue to live on in the hearts of all those she touched.

Rosalie is survived by her children, Duane Jr. (Kathy) Carter, April (Robyn) Morgan, and Lisa Sokolowski; grandchildren, Jennifer (Richard) Grech, Brittany (Matthew) Coyne,  Lindsey Carter, Autumn Tessler, Michael (Brianna) Sokolowski, and Carly Sokolowski; great-grandchildren, Mirabella and Breya Coyne, Henry, Hanna, Charlie, and Isabella Grech; a brother, Louis (Janet) Canova.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at St. Patrick Church at 1:30 p.m.  Everyone is asked to please meet at the church.  Arrangements entrusted to Willig Funeral Home & Crematory.  Condolences and memories may be shared at
