Obituary for Rosemary Repetto

Rosemary Anne Repetto (née Hagan), often known as 'Rhode', passed away on 31st January 2022, aged 55 years.

Rosemary was born on the 3rd February 1966 to parents Donald and Joyce Hagan. She left Tristan and then later married Gerald Repetto in Cape Town were they lived for a while before moving to Australia where their son Cameron was born. In due course Rosemary moved to the UK, where she lived for some years before returning permanently to Tristan in 2016.

Rosemary was a very kind, caring, loving and helpful person who would help anyone. She worked as a cleaner at Camogli Hospital and later at St. Mary's School. Rose was a very hard working person who loved working in the Potato Patches, dancing, crochet and loved her animals.

Rosemary Repetto

You would always see Rosemary smiling, laughing and joking with people and she would never pass you along the road without greeting you or just saying hello. She was always smartly dressed and loved her lipstick, makeup and jewellery.

She will be sadly missed by all her friends and family especially her mum Joyce, sisters Debbie, Marion, Miranda and son Cameron.
