A Mass of Christian burial for Rose Marie Venere, a retired secretary who was active in the local, state and national organizations of the Order of the Sons of Italy, will be offered at 9 a.m. today at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, 9533 Liberty Road in Randallstown.
Miss Venere, a Randallstown resident, died Saturday at Good Samaritan Hospital after a heart attack. She was 61.
She retired about five years ago as an executive secretary in the offices of Fair Lanes Inc., where she worked about 10 years. Earlier, she was employed by the Rouse Co. for more than 15 years. She began her career in a law office.
The Baltimore native was a graduate of the Institute of Notre Dame.
She was a delegate to the 1989 national convention of the Order of the Sons of Italy. She was on the national organization's committee preparing for the celebration of this year's anniversary of Christopher Columbus' voyage.
