Rose Marie and I went through school together - kindergarten through grade 12. We spent our summers playing together through the '30's not really knowing how bad the Depression was - only that we had what we needed. Rose Marie's aunt was ever present as were my parents. We didn't see much of each other after high school but always kept in touch. I feel like I have lost some of my lovely memories of childhood with her paswsing.

Did not take long to realize how special Rose was to everyone she touched. She will be greatly missed by many.
My deepest sympathy to the Strait family.
Kathy and Dan, We know you will miss your Mother very much. Always remember the good times and reflect on what an amazing and funny lady she was. Our deepest sympathy.
