By Albert Amateau
Roseann Morledge, a lifelong Village resident who taught for 30 years at P.S. 41, died on Wed., Dec. 12, in her home on Prince St. at the age of 73. She had been diagnosed with diabetes and died of complications of the condition, according to her son, Dr. L. J. Morledge.
She was born in the Village, raised her family in the Village and taught in the Village, she loved it, said her daughter-in-law Alexis Morledge.
Born to Luigi and Phyllis Stingone in the Village, she attended Marymount School on Fifth Ave. at 84th St. from first through 12th grades and then went to Georgian Court, a womens college in New Jersey. She later earned a masters degree at Fordham.
She was married to Roy Morledge, a lawyer, and lived for a short time in Billings, Mont. But they were separated and she returned to the Village, where she raised her daughter, Julie Bertagna, and her son, a doctor associated with St. Vincents and Lenox Hill hospitals.
She taught reading and science at P.S. 41 until she retired in 1996 and then took part in the dial-a-teacher program until 2004 helping students with math and science over the phone, her daughter-in-law said.
She was an avid theatergoer and frequented local restaurants. Everyone knew her, said her daughter-in-law.
In addition to her son and daughter, both of New York, a brother, L. Joseph Stingone, of Tega Cay, S.C., and four grandchildren survive.
Perazzo Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. The funeral was on Dec. 17 at St. Anthonys Church on Sullivan St. and burial was in Calvary Cemetery.
