Obituary of Rosemarie C. Kindya

Please share a memory of Rosemarie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Rosemarie Carol Kindya, age 87, from New Hyde Park, passed away on Monday, February 27, 2023.

Rosemarie, born on April 30, 1935, grew up in Maspeth, Queens.  At the age of 19, she married Robert E. Kindya, and later moved to New Hyde Park to raise her family, raising 4 beautiful children, Susan, Bobby, Laura and Brian.  


After years of being a homemaker, she decided it was time to try something different, so she applied to Nassau Community College where she studied Legal Secretarial Science. Upon her graduation, she worked for Rivkin, Radler for many years until her retirement.  Prior to her career as a legal secretary, and that of a homemaker, she was one of Avon’s first door to door sales representatives and continued to sell Avon for over 30 years.


Her greatest joy came from animals and if she could, she would have saved them all.  She and Bob always had the pitter patter of felines around their home and the kids had many Persian cats as their pets through the years.  We all joked that the animals came first, the children second.  Her main hobby was oil painting and she often worked side by side with her husband, Bob, who would stretch the canvas’ and frame her paintings which she sold at arts fairs. 


She lived a full life and was content being at home with her cats.  She is survived by her four children, 3 grandchildren, Matthew, Kristen and Samantha and recently became a proud great grandmother of Madison Rose who was born on October 27, 2022.  We were lucky that she got to meet Madison just before she fell very ill, and it was obvious that she was very excited to be a great Grandma.


Many people will remember her as direct, but she had a very funny sense of humor and she continued with her witty comments up until her passing.
