To the family of Rosie, so enjoyed meeting and having Rosie be a part of my Mom’s stay in the assisted living. Your family was so good to my Mom in her last days as well. Thinking of you all hugs and prayers

B Bill Ohde September 24, 2021

Hi from Bill Ohde. So sorry to hear about Rosie. It has been probably 30 years since I worked with her at the funeral home. She was always happy and positive and made others feel the same. I have fond memories of her. My best wishes to you all.

This lady left a huge impact on my life. She was always there for a hug and words of encouragement. Her house was always open and never had to knock. She always had a smile on her face that will be missed, I even got a smile and laugh at the end. Prayers for the family - Michael, Russ, Pat (known as her Patty), Kelly, Marilee, Kathy, Jimmy, Annie and Brian and the rest of the family.
