Rose Zorine (Policastro) Webb Barton, 83, of Latrobe, died peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Monday, December 04, 2023.  She was born September 20, 1940, in Greensburg, a daughter of the late Benjamin J. and Helen J. Ross Policastro. Rose graduated from St Xavier Academy in 1958, a total graduation class of 28 young ladies, who have been lifelong sisters to this day. She later graduated from WCCC and Seton Hill University. Rose enjoyed traveling with her favorite destination being Italy and her winter home in St Petersburg, Fla that she shared with her husband Bob. One of her favorite spots was on a beach chair at St. Pete’s beach. She was a belle of the ball at every social event. What she enjoyed most was spending time with family and those who entered her life as friends and became part of her family. She cherished the time spent with her cousins, those lunch dates that ran straight into dinner dates. And the trips with the girls…if we only knew all those vacation stories.   She enjoyed her life career of a being in sales, retiring as vice president of sales for a manufacturer in window treatments. She received numerous industry awards throughout her career. Rose shared her passion in her motivational speaking seminars throughout the country.  In her retirement years, she devoted time volunteering to causes near to her heart and enjoyed her time in the kitchen sharing her Italian recipes. So many were lucky enough to receive a can of pizzelles or some other goodie from her kitchen. She also enjoyed helping her kids at the family business, Webb’s Service Center, where she declared herself as the general manager and loved her days working at the shop. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Miles H. Webb, Sr.; and her Goddaughter, Bridget M. McGrath.
