NORTH ADAMS, Mass. Rose Elizabeth Girardi, 91, of 281 Walnut St. died Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, at Williamstown Commons.

Born in North Adams on March 26, 1922 daughter of Luigi and Elizabeth Rosati Irace Rogge, she attended local schools including the former Brayton Middle School, where she was the leading lady opposite Gordon West in an opera production in which they sang and danced.

She was a member of the Sons of Ital and of the St. Luke's Alumni Association, staying in touch with her classmates for her entire life.

Mrs. Girardi enjoyed word puzzles and games, and was an avid Boston Red Sox baseball fan.
