Rose Collado, age 66 of Wyckoff, NJ, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2022 surrounded by her loving family. Rose was born in Hackensack and had been a resident of Wyckoff for 28 years. Prior to her retirement in 2019, Rose was employed by the Waldwick Board of Education at Crescent School for 25 years. She touched the lives of countless students and her work family as a collaborative aide and Spanish teacher. Rose loved spending time with her family and was always up for taking countless adventures with them. Her granddaughters were the little loves of her life and her bright light. Rose’s smile lit up a room and left an indelible mark on the hearts of everyone she met. She was a true blessing in everyone’s life.
Rose was predeceased by her devoted husband Tony, in 2003 and her father, Andres Albacete, in 1988.

Rose was never one to say "goodbye", she always said "see you later". You’d say "I love you", she’d say "I love you more".
