Roseanne was born on April 10, 1931 in New York City where she was raised by her devoted parents William and Philomena Ranaghan in the company of her loving siblings, May Lamb, Mena Nicholson, Margaret Moore and Colum, all predeceased.
Roseanne was the beloved wife of William F. Kilgannon, who predeceased her in 2008 and the adoring mother of Joanne Keeley, Mary Beth (Ken) Murphy and Bill (Tiffany).
Nothing gave her more joy than the company of her grandchildren Jessica, Allison, Billy, Corey, Shayla, Lee Anne, Brendan and Ian for whom she could always be counted on to babysit at a moment’s notice.
