First and foremost Rosalie was a women who loved and followed her Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. It is a comfort to my wife, Peggy, (who Rosalie introduced me to some 29 years ago this month) and I that she is now with her heavenly Father and will never know pain or sorrow again. We both look forward to the day when we will be reunited with her. Our prayers are for the family as they mourn the loss of Rosalie, but let us rejoice in her gain. Our memories will always be fond ones as we think of Rosalie and the warm reception we were always greeted with when we visited. In Christ’s Love, Wayne and Peggy Leibitzke

Rosalie kept me in touch with my Polish roots and with family so very far away. She sent me long and wonderful letters full of her work helping others but especially about her family and her precious grandchildren. She often said, “When all the little ones go home, it’s too quiet.” I hope good memories and love surround her family now and for a lifetime. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. Love, Diane Stubblefield Sylvester and Art Sylvester

It seemed that whenever I made any of my random stops at her house, she was always baking something. My memory of her will always include the smell of her kitchen, sitting at the table, sampling. Al Linn
