Eli Rosengren Obituary, Death – Virginia Myatt Rosengren, 89, a beloved member of the Jamestown community, transitioned to eternal peace on December 26, 2014, at Summa Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio. Virginia’s life was characterized by resilience, service, and a deep commitment to her family and community. Born on July 4, 1925, in Orient, Illinois, to parents Peter and Rose Karasiewicz Myatt, Virginia embarked on a journey that led her to touch the lives of many. After attending school in Willow River, Minnesota, she worked at The Admiral Corporation in Chicago, Illinois, before making Jamestown, New York, her home in 1945.
Virginia’s dedication to her work and community was evident through her employment at the former Chautauqua Hardware Corporation, where she contributed her skills for many years. Beyond her professional life, she was a devoted member of several organizations, including the First Lutheran Church, the Ingjald Lodge #65, Independant Order of the Vikings, Lakewood Memorial Post #1286 American Legion Auxiliary, the Veteran of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, and the Marvin Community House Political Study Group. She also generously volunteered at the W.C.A. Hospital Snack Shop for several years.
Her passions included the joy of preparing family dinners, crafting intricate crocheted afghans for her loved ones, and expressing her creativity through oil painting. Virginia’s legacy extends not only to her immediate family but also to her wider community, where her warmth, dedication, and talents made a lasting impact.
Virginia Myatt Rosengren is survived by her two daughters, Diane Cresanti of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Gail (Ken) Salman of Munroe Falls, Ohio. Her memory lives on in her five grandchildren: Jennifer (Andy) Thomas of Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Mark (Amy) Cresanti of Broussard, Louisiana; Patricia (Alex) Moore of Bemus Point, New York; Megan (Paul) Harmon of Stow, Ohio; and Kate (Anthony) Cusimano of Jamestown, New York. Eleven great-grandchildren—Rebecca and Sarah Thomas, Hayden, Lauren, and Amanda Cresanti, Trenton and Eli Moore, Chase and Kendall Harmon, and Giana and Alyssa Cusimano—also cherish the loving legacy she leaves behind. She is survived by her brother, Peter Myatt of Mariposa, California.
