Rosemary Vrablic '78
Rosemary, far right, with Eileen Davidson and Alice Varghese '17, a recipient of the Bernice and Joseph Vrablic Scholarship.
Rosemary graduated from Fordham University in 1982 before entering the business world where she has enjoyed a successful career as a private banker for over thirty years with Citibank, Bank of America and Deutsche Bank.
Although a proud graduate of Fordham University, Rosemary is quick to share that her greatest loyalty lies with Ursuline, where she met her life-long friends from the Class of 1978 who truly are more like sisters. She is also happy to let you know that “they” were Sr. Jean Baptiste's first class! Rosemary is proud of the legacy of her tight-knit Ursuline group who among them have had seven daughters and countless nieces attend Ursuline!
Rosemary believes strongly in the value of Ursuline education. So much so that in 2005, she established a scholarship in honor and in memory of her parents. The Bernice and Joseph Vrablic Scholarship continues to be one of Ursuline’s most prestigious named scholarships and has provided significant tuition assistance for eight students since its inception. Beginning with the first CROWDS4TUS in 2015, Rosemary's support has helped make our annual day of giving a financial success. She has also inspired Ursuline students by sharing her professional experience and offering great practical advice as part of Ursuline’s Distinguished Speaker Series for which she has since earned the naming rights. Rosemary was recognized with the St. Angela Award at her 30th Reunion for her devotion to the school.
An early supporter of the Innovation Campaign, Rosemary not only contributed at a leadership level, but also provided insights, feedback and ideas that helped conceptualize the project and refine the case for support to share with other donors.
In short, whenever there is a need at Ursuline, Rosemary responds. We are inspired by her generosity. It is with hearts full of gratitude that we recognize Rosemary for her commitment to the Ursuline sisterhood!
