Jennifer was born on September 17, 1953 to Chuck and Wilma Rosbach and was raised in Chehalis, Washington. She is survived by her husband, Ed Macke, MD, and her two sons Cole and Jeff Macke. She is also survived by her mother, Wilma (Rosbach) Brown of Chehalis; sister, Sue Stewart (TJ) of Mercer Island; and brothers, Steve Rosbach (Christine) of Ellensburg and Jeff Rosbach (Mavis) of Jesup, Georgia; many nieces and nephews, and of course her cats, Finn and Fiona. Jennifer attended University of Washington for undergraduate studies and St. Martin's University for her graduate studies. She taught in Elma and Shelton school districts before retiring one year ago. Jennifer impacted many lives through her love for teaching. She had a passion for literature and could spin stories of her own that made the ordinary seem extraordinary. She was known for her witty sense of humor. Most of all she had a fierce bond with those she held close. Her life revolved around her family - Ed, Cole and Jeff. She was especially close with her mother, Wilma, whom she visited every Saturday. She loved to travel and looked forward to her annual trip to Cabo with her husband, Ed. A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends at a later date.
