Rosalie was a doting mother to her four children, a proud grandmother to her eleven grandchildren, and her ten great grandchildren were a source of immense happiness for her. Everyone who had the good fortune to know her held a special place in their hearts for her. She exemplified what it meant for Jesus to instruct his followers to love one another.
Rosalie had a deep love for her family’s church, Faith United Methodist, where she was a dedicated member for many years and participated in a variety of church leadership roles, including Bible Studies and the Care Team. She took great pleasure in residing on an acreage, where she could cultivate a vast rose garden and flower beds. There, she hosted many groups, including the 4-H, family gatherings, hayrides, and more. Traveling, going camping with her family and friends, and joining the United Methodist Camping club were all activities that Rosalie cherished.
