Rosemarie Masker, a lifelong resident of Warwick, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2020, surrounded by her family. She was 86 years old.

Born in Warwick on March 19, 1934, she was the daughter of Roy and Rose (Marlin) Faulls.

Rosemarie retired from the Warwick Valley School District after working many years as a food service employee.

She was a member of St Stephen’s Catholic Church.

Rosemarie is survived by her twin daughters, Diane Colon and her husband German and Donna Masker, both of Warwick, and her grandsons Justin Colon and his wife Katie, Chase Planson and his wife Morrisa and Evan Colon and his wife Heather.

Her grandsons were the light of her life and she often referred to them proudly as “my three boys.”

She is also survived by her great grandchildren Scarlett, Kennedy, Teagan, Bram, Etta and two more on their way.

She was predeceased by her husband Howard “Pete” Masker and her three siblings, sisters Marjorie Masker and Mary Faulls and brother John Faulls.

The family would like to thank Dr. John Dermigny, Dr. Jeffrey Stewart, Hospice of Orange-Sullivan (West) and the staff at The Medical Store in Chester.

Due to the COVID pandemic, a memorial service will be held in the summer when everyone can attend.

Donations in her memory may be made to American Parkinson Association 135 Parkinson Ave. Staten Island, NY 10305 or the Warwick Humane Society PO Box 61 Warwick, NY 10990.

Arrangements were made by Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home. To send an online condolence, go to
