Rosa Sergi (nee Timpani), a resident of Fond du Lac since 2000, died peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014, at the age of 83. A devout Catholic, Rosa was born in Calabria, Southern Italy on January 9, 1931 and grew up with 2 brothers and 4 sisters.
She married Guiseppe (Joe) Sergi and immigrated with him and their two young sons to Los Angeles, California. There they raised their family in the company of Rosa’s parents, Francesco and Maria Timpani, Rosa’s siblings and their families, and other relatives who had immigrated to the area. Rosa and Joe moved to Fond du Lac to be closer to their older son, Dr. Michael Sergi, and his family. Joe died in 2002 after nearly 50 years of marriage.
Rosa is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Michael and Paula Sergi and Frank Sergi and Tessa Hart; two grandsons, Gregory and Frank; her sisters Teresa Sergi, Catherine Sergio, and Margaret Timpani; and loving nieces, a nephew, and several grand-nieces and nephews.
She was utterly devoted to her family and will be deeply missed by her loving relatives and friends.
