Meryl Jean (Sessa) Rosenberger, age 69, passed away in peace on September 5, 2014 with her family and friends by her side. Her passing finally gave her freedom from 40 years of pain and suffering. Meryl was the 1st child born to Norman and Marian Sessa on April 25, 1945 in Philadelphia, PA. She moved to Kansas City, MO when she was 9 years old and then to Florida when she was 14. Meryl graduated from Riviera Beach High School in 1963. After school she married, moved to Cleveland and had her only son Rick. She divorced and returned to Florida in 1968. Meryl had many jobs as a single mom. She was a bartender, waitress, professional photographer, (Tooley Myron) country club manager, sales girl and caretaker of the elderly. She married Mike Wade in 1978 but divorced when she met the love of her life, Terry Rosenberger. She and Terry married in 1988. Meryl was a kind, giving, compassionate woman, always ready to help a family member or friend or even a stranger. She helped her father take care of her invalid mother for many years and she and Terry helped her father until she became too ill. She leaves behind a loving husband, Terry Rosenberger, a devoted father, Norman Sessa, a son, Rick (Rosco) Sessa, a sister, Donna (Sessa) Verfaillie, (Roland), a step-daughter, Rhyah, and grandchildren, Rick, Jr., Gavin, Avalyn, and Alivia. She is also survived by her niece, Loren (Verfaillie) Stanley, (Steve) and nephew, Eric Verfaillie and many extended family members. She leaves behind her devoted friends of sixty years, Gerry Martino (Mike) and Elaine Konrad Beers. She and Gerry and Elaine were known as the "Golden Girls". She is predeceased by her mother, Marian Sessa. Meryl will be remembered as a free, eccentric spirit, who danced to her own tune but always respected everyone else's song. Her crazy laugh, (not so good) singing and generosity will be remembered and missed. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 13 at 10:00AM at Aycock-Riverside Funeral and Cremation Center, 1112 Military Trail, Jupiter, FL 33458. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Vitas Hospice, 100 Century Blvd, #101, West Palm Beach, FL or Pet Haven Rescue, 1128 Royal Palm Beach Blvd., Suite 131, Royal Palm Beach, FL 33411.

Rest in Peace, I will always remember our brief conversations in Macys at the PBG mall. Your husband was also generous in sharing you with me when we talked about High School.
