She had 16 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren.


Rose (Rosie) loved her daughters the best way she knew how, they were her greatest accomplishment. She loved bowling, to play poker, crocheting, play penny slots and to smoke. She did work as a telephone operator in her younger years, few odd jobs but then housewife for remaining years. She was a member of A.A. where she helped SO many people struggling in that area. Was a great listener as well as making everyone laugh, especially with all her eccentric ways, like wearing 2 hats at a time and doubled up on hoop earrings,  if you knew her you would know why, she had her reasons for why she did certain things which made her so adorable.

Never held back what was on her mind, a rebel one might say, truely one of a kind. We will admire her for her strength and independence,  but knew when to ask for help. We are so grateful for the life we had with her and will miss her like crazy. She’s struggling no more. Enjoying Eternal Love, Light and a Peace of Mind.

    My Aunt Rosie was fearless like her big sister my mother. I admire both of them for how they overcame challenges in their lives. I’m doing my best to follow in their footsteps. 🙂
