Rochester: March 19, 2014. “Ms. Bond the Music Teacher”. She is predeceased by her beloved husband, William Pharo; her parents, Robert & Stephany Bond; her sister, Carole Bond. She is survived by her extended family, Tim, Maryjo and Gabriella Smith; her cousins, Nancy (Peter) Palmieri, Wendy (John) Farino and family; good friends, Betty Ann Morley and Ed McCullough; Oasis Choir, teachers and students.
Ms. Bond graduated from the Eastman School of Music and was a music teacher first in Niagara Falls then for most of her career in the Rochester City School district. Rose always said, she never worked a day in her life because she loved teaching her passion of music to children. “A hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be more musical because I made a difference in the life of a child.”
Her Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the Chapel of Peace Mausoleum at Riverside Cemetery, 2650 Lake Avenue, Rochester, NY 14612.
