She was a member of Holy Angels Catholic Church and Sacred Heart Altar Rosary Sodality. Rose Mary was a loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, and Friend who could always be counted on for support, strength, and wit. She was on speed dial for advice and guidance, be it for cooking, cleaning or parenting tips. You never had to guess what she was thinking. She was her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren's number one fan and supporter in all of their activities. Rosie was viewed as a Grandmother to not only her own Grandkids, but to many non-family members as well. No one ever left Rosie's house hungry, whether it was her famous pies, lime pickles, or an impromptu lunch, which the Grandkids took advantage of often. She also made sure the boys in the field didn't go hungry. The kitchen was always a gathering place at the farm and holds many fond memories for everyone. Rosie took immense pride in her garden and loved the holidays with her family. Rosie enjoyed shopping and always looked her best from head to toe. Bernie and Rosie were regulars at the Walkup Country Club. They spent many Saturdays dancing the night away with the gang. She was a loving sister and enjoyed taking the day to go on adventures with her siblings. We lost an amazing, strong willed woman whose thoughtfulness and sincerity will be forever in our hearts. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 10:30 AM at Holy Angels Catholic Church with Rev. Daniel Hess. Burial will be at Graceland Cemetery, Sidney.
