Life Story for Generosa Bancroft

Generosa   Bancroft
Generosa “Rosie” Bancroft, 79, of Hemet, California, passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She was born Friday, Oct. 7, 1938, in Cavite City, Philippines, and was the wife of Bill Bancroft, whom she met while working as a waitress at the Navy Petty Officers Club in Cubi Point, Philippines.

Rosie loved to cook, and was known for making many Filipino dishes. She would often bribe people with her homemade lumpia. She was always a social butterfly; she enjoyed playing bingo and poker at the retirement community where she and Bill resided. Above all, nothing was more important to her than her family.

As a child in the Philippines during World War II, Rosie remembers seeing U. S. and Japanese warplanes dogfighting overhead, and witnessed some of the atrocities of the Bataan Death March.

After Rosie and Bill were married, they lived in the Philippines, where all three of their children were born. Bill was a civilian employee of the U. S. Navy. Throughout his career, they were assigned to various military bases around the world, including the Philippines, California, Alaska, Japan and Maryland.

Surviving are daughters, Lisa (Kirk Wilson) Bancroft, Mary (Scott) Purcell, and son, Rich Bancroft; sister, Lita Topacio, brothers, Pol Tillo and Danilo Tillo; grandchildren, David (Laurel) Purcell, Gabrielle Purcell, McKenzie Wilson, Asher Bancroft; and great-granddaughter, Harper Purcell.

The family will receive friends from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, at McWane Family Funeral Home, located at 350 N. San Jacinto Ave., Hemet, California 92544. The funeral service will commence at 11 a.m., to be followed by a gathering at the Mountain View Park clubhouse. Interment will take place at Riverside National Cemetery at a later date.
