Rose Mary Carrero

In memory of Rose Mary Carrero — beloved mother of six children and dear friend of countless others — who passed away February 22, 2021 in Lorain, Ohio.

Rose was born in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico on August 22, 1935.  In 1947, at the age of 12, Rose, her sister and her mother moved to Lorain, Ohio and lived there 74 years until her passing.  During her many years in Lorain, she attended school, got married, became a mother, worked at the May Company in the cosmetics department and was owner of Carrero’s Market in Lorain.

She was a loving and compassionate woman who served as a Good Samaritan in her community to provide for the needy and disadvantaged, until her passing.  She was a devout woman of immense faith and serving the Sacred Heart Chapel became a central part of her life.  Rose served as an Elder at her church, Sacred Heart Chapel, where for many years she sang in the choir, was a Prison Ministry volunteer, catechism teacher, Pastoral Council member and Small Church Community member.  She received her final blessing by Father Bill Thaden who considered Rose not only a devoted servant of the Church, but also a friend.

Rose was preceded in death by her mother, Justina Rodriguez; her sister, Ramonita; brothers, Teofilo, Jesus and Jose Antonio; and her husband, Eduardo Carrero.  

She is survived by her six children, Doris (Mike) Rosario Martinez, Julie Contreras, Alicia (Nelson) Bregon, Elizabeth Carrero, David (Angie) Carrero and Yvette (Tod) Davis.  She is also survived by her sister, Anna Laureano, whom she loved with all her heart, as well as Anna’s three daughters who she considered as her own.  She and Anna shared an inseparable bond. Rose also has 14 grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 8:30 a.m. until the time of Mass at 9:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Chapel, 4301 Pearl Ave, Lorain, Ohio. Rev.

My sincere sympathy to Doris and the family. I worked with Rose Mary at May Co. for many years. She was always so pleasant and easy to talk to. I considered her a friend and was honored to call her that.
May she Rest In Peace in her forever home.

I am a friend of Ms. Roses daughter Doris. While I have not met Ms. Rose in person, I hear wonderful stories about Ms. Rose through Doris. I am touched by the stories of her love for her children and the kindness she has for everyone. I will miss hearing about Ms. Rose through Doris. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Much love, Piyachat
