FLATLEY, Rose Marie, 61, of Wheeling, W.Va., died on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 surrounded by her family at Liza’s Place, Valley Hospice, Wheeling, following a valiant and extended battle against glioblastoma, a primary brain cancer.

She was born Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1954, in Steubenville, Ohio, a daughter of Antoinette (Rocchio) Chiodi and the late Frank Chiodi.

Raised in Weirton, W.Va., Rose was a 1973 graduate of Madonna High School and a 1977 honors graduate of Bethany College, Bethany, W.Va., from which she obtained a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. After teaching at Sacred Heart Grade School in Weirton and Corpus Christi Grade School in Warwood, W.Va., she left her career to concentrate on raising her children. In her later years, she became a certified instructor in Yoga and Pilates and taught classes at the YMCA and Oglebay Institute in Wheeling. She was Roman Catholic by faith, and a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Wheeling.

Rose was an exceptionally devoted and loving wife, mother, daughter, and sister. She was athletic and loved all forms of physical activity and exercise including running, swimming, scuba diving, weight training, dancing, aerobics, and yoga. She was a truly remarkable woman whose warm smile, genial manner, and big hearted generosity touched and benefited all who knew her.

Surviving are her high school sweetheart and husband of 37 years, Patrick Flatley; her two children, Daniel (Meredith) Flatley of Wheeling, and Valerie Flatley of Wheeling; her mother, Antoinette (Rocchio) Chiodi; three siblings, Domenica (Richard) Bell of Morgantown, W.Va., Maria (Donald) DelRosso of Warrenton, Va., and Frank (Maria) Chiodi of New York, N.Y.; and several nieces and nephews.

Friends will be received on Thursday, June 23, 2016, from 2-4 & 6-8 pm at the Altmeyer Funeral Home, Elm Grove Chapel, 154 Kruger Street, Wheeling, where a vigil service will be held at 7:30 pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, June 24, 2016 at 10 am at St. Vincent Catholic Church in Wheeling with Rev. Gary Naegele as celebrant. Interment will follow in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Wheeling.

A special note of thanks goes to the staffs of the Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center at the Cleveland Clinic and Valley Hospice, Wheeling Facility, Liza’s Place, for the dedicated and compassionate care and support they provided to Rose and her family.

Memorial contributions can be made to the American Brain Tumor Association, via a tribute fund in Rose’s name, at www.abta.org or by mail at ABTA, 8550 West Bryn Mawr Avenue, Suite 550, Chicago, Ill. 60631 and to  Valley Hospice, 10686 State Route 150, Rayland, Ohio 43943 or by visiting www.tmcfunding.com

Dear Flatley and Chiodi Families,
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen RoseMarie but believe me it’s not that she hasn’t been in my heart as all of you are. I look across the road from my Mother’s house and see the home that you all grew up in and it reminds me of such happy times. Roe was one of my first friends from grade school thru high school and beyond. As everyone has said, she was the kindest, most genuine good person that I have ever known. I sit here writing this with tears in my eyes and an ache in my heart that she has passed. My deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers to all of you. Wish I could have been with you in person but know that I am with you all in spirit. God Bless Roe and all of you.

Deep, deep sympathy and prayers for all.
Sincere Condolences, Gail

Dear Pat and family: I was very sorry to hear of Rose’s passing. Nothing I can say will ease the pain and emptiness you are feeling right now, but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. She will forever be in your heart and eventually smiles will replace some of the tears.
