Born in New York City on January 25, 1940, Rosanne was daughter to the late Leo and Ruth (Sheehy) White. She was raised at Long Beach, Long Island until the age of 13, when her family relocated to Yates County.
Rosanne graduated from Penn Yan Academy in 1959 and the Community College of the Finger Lakes in 1976. She enlisted into the United States Marine Corps in 1959, where she served her country with pride and honor. Rosanne met her husband, John E. "Jack" Killen, while stationed in California and shared 47 years of love and commitment to their family until his passing in December of 2007.
In 1961, Rosanne traded in her military boots to assume her new position as a Marine Corps wife, which meant she was both mother and father when raising her children, while the call of duty kept Jack overseas for nine of the first 13 years of their marriage. A unique woman of great strength of character, she had an independent spirit. She was a generous, selfless matriarch who devoted herself to her family and friends, especially her cherished grandchildren. Rosie will be remembered for her kind, supportive nature, generous spirit, and sense of humor. She was proud of her accomplishments and lived each moment of her life with determination. She was a communicant of St. Michael's Catholic Church and a member of Our Lady of the Lakes Parish.
Rosanne is survived by her children, Sean E. Killen, Iman Ruth (Mohamed) Harrak, Patrick (Anne) Killen, Colleen Killen; grandchildren, Michael (Angela) Killen, Sean M. Killen, and their mother, Connie; Ahmed, Rashid, Kauthar and Zakaria Harrak and Mary Katherine and Daniel Patrick Killen; brothers, L. Ryan White, Stewart White and Dr. Robert (Regina) White; sister, Ruth A. (Martin) Maltz; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. - See more at:

Pat was a wonderful person!!!  I will always think of her when we are doing the pie wheel for Keuka Comfort Care Home.  She was the first person to volunteer to help me spin the wheel and we had so much fun.
