    Lost for words on expressing the deep loss we all feel but so very grateful to be in the receiving side of her love. Have learned many life lessons, from Mom Rose. An incredible lady. She will always live in our hearts and we get to watch her ways, in Roseanne, Jessica, Krista and Tala. We are lucky the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Dad Joe and her raised a beautiful family. Happy they are forever together. May the lord keep them surrounded in love and harmony. ❤️

  2. Barbara A Lafferty condolence:

    To Rose and family…I will definitely miss seeing and doing your mom’s hair and all our talks about travel. I love listening to all her stories about the grandchildren and now about the new little great granddaughter! My deepest condolences love and prayers to you and the family.❤️

  3. Suzi Webster condolence:

    I was incredibly sad to hear the news that Grandma Rosemarie passed. I feel so grateful to have know her. She treated me like her own family and I appreciate her kindness and generosity through the years. I’m especially thankful to have spent time with her during her last weeks— it was very uplifting and inspiring to see her celebrate her long marriage and cherish all her surrounding family. She’ll be missed but I know her legacy will live on through her loved ones.
