Rosie had a beautiful personality and enjoyed life. She loved everyone and adored her children and grandchildren. With a heart of gold, she always put everyone’s needs ahead of her own regardless of who they were and always gave more than she had and never asked for anything in return. She was a true gem. She loved painting, singing, dancing, shopping and RED lipstick.
