Rose Polta Obituary

VIENNA - Rose Marie Polta of Vienna passed away on Thursday, January 18, 2024, at St. Elizabeth’s hospital in Youngstown after a long battle with cancer. 

Rose was born in Warren on July 20, 1958, to Charles and Joyce Ann (Tackett) Wagoner. She graduated from Mathews High School in 1976 and was a life-long resident. 

She married Robert J. Polta November 12, 1982. They were married for 31 years before he passed away on September 7, 2013. She graduated from Kent State University in 2010 and worked as a Registered Nurse in the area and as a travel nurse for 13 years. She was a diehard Cleveland Browns fan and loved the Cleveland Indians and the Cavs. She was a talented artist, loved to doodle and read up on history. She especially loved board games with the family including Yahtzee and Monopoly. Her favorite thing to do was travel with her family and friends.

Rose is survived by her two sons, Joel (Stephanie) Polonus and Mathew (Lea) Polta; her five grandchildren Chase (Heather), Brody, Allie, Grayson and Hunter; sisters Terri (Donald) Goforth, Melissa Berg, Becky (Steve) Stehura, and April (David) Hassler; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, brothers David Wagoner and Harold Wagoner Sr. 

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Doctors Kathleen Castillo, James Kim, Allan Dooley, Francis, & Keenan, the staff at St E’s Oncology center, and ICU nurses Racheal, Melanie & Carly.
