Rosalie dreamed of becoming a Mother from a young age, and she certainly did accomplish that goal by having 10 children!   Thank goodness she loved to cook and bake as she made countless delicious meals and desserts.   She was a Selfless, Loving Mother, always putting her children first.  She would wake up incredibly early and stay up very late making lunches and making sure the children were prepared for school. Rosalie loved the Christmas Holiday making it “MAGICAL” for her children as she decorated every corner of the house.  She also had a love for “angels” and could never turn any of them away from joining her collection.  She also loved bird watching and keeping up with relatives on Facebook. 
Along with countless other relatives, Rosalie also loved her little four-legged friend “Gabby” who has given her so much unconditional love.
