Obituary of Rose E. Torok
Rose E. Torok, age 93, suddenly went home to be with our Lord on September 2, 2020. Rose was born in Bridgeport, CT to John G. and Barbara Revak Janocko. Rose was the youngest of 7 children.
As a young girl, she sold WW2 War Bonds; later, was employed at Bead Chain and worked at her husband's grocery/meat market. When her children were grown, she re-entered the work force at the University of Bridgeport, Bursar's Office from which she retired. In 2004 she relocated to Melbourne, Florida. Rose will be remembered for her "I shop; therefore, I am", enjoying hugs from her grandkids to recharge "her batteries", and being the Hungarian hotline focal point for our family and friends.
Rose is survived by her children Thomas G Torok, Linda Farrell, Judy Palko (Nick) and Laurie Davies; grandchildren Nick Palko (Kayla Genovese), Chris Palko (Theresa Navarre), Tim Palko (fiance Shannon Simonelli) , Doug Palko, Brendan Palko (Amanda Ziegler) & Natalie Palko (Anthony Ferrozzo), Lauren LoGiacco (Chris) and Brynne Davies, one great granddaughter, Harper Lori-Rose Palko. Rose is also survived by sisters-in-law, Helen Torok Dobyan and Ann Varga, cousin Katherine Revak Lopez, and a host of many other close family & friends. She was predeceased by her former husband, George Torok and son-in-law, Joe Farrell.
Due to Covid-19, there will be no calling hours at Ammen Family. A private interment service will be held at Florida Memorial Gardens. A family celebration of her Life will be held in Connecticut at a later date.

From Rose: Csokolom Viszontlátásra Isten veled
"You do not walk alone"
May you see God's light on the path ahead
when the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear even in your hour of sorrow
the gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness never turn your heart to stone.
May you always remember when the shadows fall
– You do not walk alone.
