Rosie then worked at Fred Rueping’s Leather Company, Infant Socks, she retired from Wells Corporation, and went on to work for Action Advertising.

Rosie was full of life, she bowled for years at Karl Ray Lanes. She loved to decorate her home inside and out, enjoyed gardening, sewing, travelling, shopping, and also loved a good party with her friends and family. Rosie’s greatest joy in life was being a grandma and great-grandma.
