Rose Marie Tamburro Obituary

Rose Marie J. Tamburro (Policastro) of East Norriton, PA, (formerly of West Chester) died peacefully on April 30, 2023. 

She was born in Newark, NJ, to George and Marie Policastro (Cushion).

She was married to William C., Sr., then worked in two different banks and retired to raise her family.  They relocated to West Chester, PA, in 1961.  She worked for Vanguard and IMM to continue her love of the financial industry.  For many years, she served in an elected position as Minority Inspector at the polls in Westtown Township.  In 2007 she fulfilled a lifelong dream of going to college and graduated Cum Laude from West Chester University with a degree in History and a minor in Italian.
