Rosie was my classmate at St. Wendelin in Fostoria and we walked home from school together. She was a sweet person and I know others of the Class of 1955 would feel the same and will be sad to hear of her passing.
I remember Mrs.Rose as my bus driver for many years and I went to school with Jen. I am sorry for your loss… She was always so nice to me.

I want to let all of “Rosie” family know how sorry I was to hear about her passing away yesterday. She was one dear long time friend. We sure had some long talks when things were going wrong & hard for either one of us. It sure helped to have a “friend ” to lean on and talk to. I am sure you all will miss her.
