Martha Jane (Ellis) Rosati, 85 of Hillcrest passed from this world into God's kingdom on Saturday, May 20, 2017. She was predeceased by her husband of fifty years, Joseph J. Rosati, her parents Mary and Frank Ellis, and siblings Frank Ellis, Jr., John Ellis, and Mary Theresa Shelton. She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Rosati of Vestal, and her son Joseph Rosati of Windsor. Martha is also survived by sister, Barbara Salva Gorick of Conklin, brother, Fr. Deacon Charles Ellis and wife Sally of Endwell, brother-in-law, Daniel Rosati of Bradenton, FL, and former daughter-in-law, Sandra Rosati of Kirkwood, along with several nieces and nephews. In 1997 she retired as a payroll clerk from the Broome County Office for Aging. She loved her home in Hillcrest, where she was able to watch the birds and bunnies in her yard from her kitchen window. She felt very lucky to live among such nice and caring neighbors. Martha loved her dog Molly and was extremely close with her children, who made sure she was cared for and safe. They feel her loss already, but are comforted by knowing that God has granted her the peace she sought. The family will receive friends Thursday from 5-8 pm at the Wm. R. Chase & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango Street, Port Dickinson, NY. A funeral Mass will be held on Friday, May 26, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Paul's Church, 282 Chenango St., Binghamton, NY.
