Rose M. Hottinger, age 73, passed from this life into the waiting arms of her savior Jesus on the morning of Tuesday May 7, 2024 in Palm Coast, Florida.

Rose was born on February 5, 1951 in the Bronx, New York to the late Frank Catania & Mary (Giordano) Catania. She was baptized and confirmed at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in the Bronx and a graduate of Washingtonville High School in Washingtonville, New York. After working for a short time on Wall Street, Rose met and later married Richard A. Hottinger. She soon after left the workforce to concentrate on raising their family. Rose and Rich moved to Palm Coast, full-time, in August 1996 from Mahopac, New York. She was an avid golfer & bowler – the Hottinger family loved to golf together and bowl together, as a family - from their time back in Mahopac through their time in Palm Coast.  Rose was a fully active member of the Hammock Dunes Club since 1992 and a member of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Palm Coast. 

Rose’s beautiful smile was her calling card… it would truly light up any room she entered and brighten the mood of anyone that was privileged to see it. Always the true life of any gathering, Rose lived an amazing & full life. She enjoyed being with her friends and she absolutely adored time with her family and the ability to express her joy of cooking for family get-togethers and holidays. 

Left to cherish their memories of Rose are her husband & partner of over 52 years,  Richard A. Hottinger; a son, Richard (wife, Robin) Hottinger; a daughter, Nikki Pennella (Ryan); 2 grandchildren, Richie & Jacob; 4 brothers Richard (wife, Jackie) Catania, Frankie Catania, Ronnie Catania  & John Catania; many nieces, nephews & extended family members and all of the countless friends that she has made over the years.

A service will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Friday May 24, 2024 in the chapel of Clymer Funeral Home & Cremations, 39 Old Kings Rd., N., Palm Coast, FL 32137. The family will receive friends for visiting from 4:00 p.m. until service hour.  

The funeral mass will be a private, family function.
