Rosetta Otten, of Odessa, FL, passed away at her home on January 17, 2023, at the age of 82. Rosetta was surrounded by her family as she received her wings and journeyed to Heaven to meet her babies, Tammy and Joey.
Rosetta was born October 5, 1940, to Minnie Del Nostro and Alex Zalessi. She was married to Frank Dolezal for 22 years and had three children – Joey, Tammy, and Michelle. Rosetta dedicated her life to creating a loving home for her family.

She is survived by her daughter, Michelle Dolezal Benulis (Steve); grand-daughter, Katherine Benulis; sister-in-law, Judi DelNostro; sister, Sandra DelNostro; niece, Sharon Tisza-Mottl (Joe); and nephews, John Anthony DelNostro (Alex), Frank Dudas (Jenn) and Wally Dudas; and several grand -nephews.
