    My deepest sympathy on Rosie’s passing. She is with her Lord and Saviour and is complete now in the arms of Jesus. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor. We would often visit out by our cars when we were coming and going. I had a wonderful visit with her late this summer sitting on the steps outside our townhomes. It was a delightful day and she was feeling good. The sun was shining not only in the sky but also in her eyes. I will miss her. God’s blessing on her life and the memories that you hold on to.

    Terry and Melanie and family, I am so sorry about Rosie’s passing. I worked with Rosie in various departments at the telephone company. She always had a positive attitude and a smile on her face for everyone. Rosie always had a hug and a sympathic ear for you if you were having a bad day. Rosie never had a bad thing to say about anyone even if they had it coming. She truly was and is an angel. I have prayed every day for her since I heard about her cancer. I know you will miss her. We all have been blessed to have known her. Again, my deepest sympathy. Patty Jo Chandler

    I was sincerely sorry to hear about Rosie’s passing. It seems it was just yesterday that I visited with her.
    Throughout the years, I know how close you and your sister were. And, I know that your bond has grown even stronger over your adult years. They say sisters are unique, and Rosie certainly showed this in how much she loved you, how much she enjoyed sharing time with you, and how much she valued your friendship. I know you will miss her laugh, her sense of humor, her ability to help you solve some of life’s problems, and her ability to be positive in spite of the issues she faced. Her love will be with you forever in your heart, and it is through these memories that you will be able to face the future.

  31. I’m so sorry for your loss. Rosie fought a long, hard, battle. She never let her illness stop her from doing much. The last time I saw her was at Mom’s funeral and she was doing so well at that time. She will be missed by so many people. The other family members that have passed away are now taking care of her. Goodbye Rosie.

  32. Milnor ND
    Hugs to all of Rosie’s wonderful family. You have all been through so much, how luck Rosie was to have all of you! I am so thankful we were able to have Rosie in our lives. She will always be remembered with a smile. From an angel on earth to one more in heaven. With sincere sympathy. Jeanine Odegard
