Rose Zappia Horne, 91, passed away peacefully on May 18th, 2024, at home surrounded by her family. She was born on October 20th, 1932, in Pittsburgh, PA to the parents of Joseph and Antoinette Zappia. She is survived by her beloved husband, Kenneth Horne, of 66 years. She was the loving sister of John C. (Nancy) Zappia, Joseph C. (Rita) Zappia, Anthony "Nini" (Catherine) Zappia, and the late Mary Hoynoski and Bridgette (Willis) Reeg. She was the beloved mother of Susan (Jerry) Curran, Carol (Matthew) Breitenbach, and Russell (Jamie) Horne.

She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cherished friends. Rose worked as an executive secretary for Sears, and loved her job as the director of Trinity Nursery School, but most importantly, Rose was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She loved cooking, canning, and created her own cookbook. She was a devoted member of Sharpsburg Family Worship Center, where her son serves as the pastor. Rose truly loved to serve her church family and community. Rose was known for her kindness and generosity, always putting others before herself. Her unconditional love, timeless wisdom, and unwavering support was a blessing to all who knew her. Rose left a legacy of faith in Jesus that will continue to influence her family and friends for generations. She will be greatly missed, but we rejoice knowing that she is in her eternal home with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
