Roseanne was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh where she earned a Ph.D. in Psychology. She was a longtime member of the American Psychological Association and was a past president and legacy award winner of the Greater Pittsburgh Psychological Association. She taught in the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh, was the former director of the counseling center at Carnegie Mellon University and owned her own psychology practice for many years. Roseanne had a way with people that made them feel comfortable from the very first time that they met her. She was kind-hearted, always willing to lend an ear and cared deeply for her family, friends, and especially her poodle, Oliver. Roseanne’s faith was incredibly important to her and prior to attending college, she entered the convent serving God as Sister Terrence of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity. She was a voracious reader, world-traveler, lover of animals, and self-proclaimed number one fan of Bruce Springsteen! She loved her life!
