Rosemarie (Mimi) McCabe, 91, a lifelong Poughkeepsie resident passed away peacefully on August 8th at home with her family by her side.
Born March 13, 1929, she was the daughter of the late Vincent D. and Agatha (Liggera) Amodeo.
Beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother, Mimi will be dearly missed and fondly remembered for her beauty, grace and elegance. An accomplished artist, pianist, singer and ballroom dancer, Mimi instilled a love for the cultural arts in her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed figure skating, speed skating, skiing, travel, art, antiquing and fashion. A graduate of Poughkeepsie High School and the Barbizon School of Modeling (5th Ave., NYC), her early career included Runway Model and Dental Assistant in Manhattan and Poughkeepsie. Mimi enjoyed a lifetime of art, music and fashion. She was a private art instructor, enthusiastic choral member and core advocate for the formation of the McCann Center Ice Rink, Poughkeepsie; and an avid volunteer in The Palm Beaches, FL where she spent many winters. Mimi will forever be adored for her impromptu visits at her children’s business establishments to the delight of all.
Rosemarie is predeceased by her husband, Joseph C. McCabe (1981) and her sister Linda Amodeo (2018).
Survivors include her children, Daniel (Susan), Jeffry, Diane and Maria; her grandchildren, Joseph Clinton McCabe, MD (Burlington, MA), William Curtis McCabe (Nashville, TN) and Sarah Catherine McCabe (Los Angeles, CA); her siblings, Mario Amodeo, Richard Amodeo and Maria (McNiff) Kirkland, as well as many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Hudson Valley Hospice and all of Mimi’s caregivers for their compassionate care and loving friendship throughout her illness appropriately known as “the long goodbye.” Rest in Peace Our Beloved Mimi.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Rosemarie’s name to the charity of your choice.
Services are private. Funeral arrangements under the care of William G. Miller & Son Funeral Home, 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY. If you wish to send an online condolence please visit our website at

Rosemarie was such a gracious and interesting person! I had fun working with her on her Cole Porter music when she took piano lessons at Vincitore's. My husband and I attended an open house to observe her beautiful artwork and were amazed by her talent. We met her children and could see that they were very proud of her! I am so glad our paths crossed-I will never forget her!

Theresa Ross Osborn- I have been told it is never easy to say good-bye, but to say instead, till we meet again. I will keep your whole family in my prayers and in my heart.

My heart is heavy with the news of Mimi’s passing, but I am grateful that God called her home and brought her long goodbye to a close. I have fond memories of spending time with Tante Mimi as a child at the house on Ferris Ln and in Florida. She was a warm, vibrant and loving lady and her light will continue to shine through the many lives she touched. We are fortunate to have one of Mimi’s paintings that reminds us of her every time we look at it. I extend my heartfelt condolences to Danny, Jeffry, Diane & Maria and the McCabe & Amodeo families. In Sympathy, Eva-Maria (Schwebel) Dickinson
