Rose loved her family, playing cards, knitting, reading and most of all playing video games. She was extremely independent, hard working, and loved cooking. You always knew you had a place to stay at Rosie’s house. She was like a mother to many people. Rose obviously valued her family but also her cats especially her beloved cat Taki. We will have awesome memories of her to bring us much love and joy!

    I love and miss you so much Rose you were my person to go to for everything . Loss is hard. It’s even harder when it’s someone who has shaped you throughout your life. she was more like mother to me than a grandmother. I am so lucky to have had her in my life. I feel deeply honored to have shared so much time with her. I’m so grateful for everything I learned from her and all the fun we had together.

    RIP Rosie ❤️

    I miss you so much. There are so many things words cant express. I loved you so much. You taught me how to cook, be responsible, respectful, and how to get through every game from Nintendo to ps2.
    I will never forget every cherished memory.
    I hope you will watch over us every time we make spinach pie and all the other times too.
    I love you and miss you so much.
    We will see you on the other side. XOXO
