ARLINGTON -- Rosanne Tynan, born Oct. 8, 1913 at her family home on Route 7 in Arlington, died at the same family home on Friday, April 1, 2005.

Rosie graduated from Arlington High School and after that from the Rutland Business College in 1931. She worked in Arlington at the Hale Co., a furniture manufacturing firm, before moving to Burlington, where she worked at a hospital near St. Michael’s until October 1943, when the hospital closed. With other members of the Burlington hospital staff, Rosie moved to the Cushing Army Hospital in Framingham, Mass. in 1943. After World War II, she transferred to the Veterans Administration Medical Center in West Roxbury, working in medical administration. She retired from the hospital in 1980.

In earlier years, Rosie was an avid golfer and skier. She gave up the game of golf in her 80s after the Canada Geese took over management of local golf courses. In 1990, Rosie moved back to Arlington to live with her sister, Betty, in their family home. Rosie and Betty traveled extensively together, including a European trip to Ireland, Italy, France, England, Spain and Switzerland. They traveled across Canada to British Columbia, visiting San Francisco. They traveled to Bermuda and to Arizona.

Rosie is survived by her sister Betty, and was predeceased by her parents Margaret Lyons and James Tynan, and by her brothers, John and Joseph, and sisters, Mary and Margaret, and by a sister who died at childbirth, Catherine. She is survived by numerous nephews and nieces.

Rosie was a communicant and sodality member of St. Margaret Mary’s Church.

She was a member of the Court of St. Rita in Manchester, and a member of the Arlington Golf Association for many years. She did extensive volunteer work at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center, Arlington Food Shelf and other organizations.

Rosie will be buried following a Mass of Christian burial at 11 a.m., Wednesday, April 6, at St. Margaret Mary’s Church in Arlington. Interment will follow in the family lot in St. Columban’s Cemetery in Arlington.

At Miss Tynan’s request, there will be no calling hours scheduled. If friends desire, contributions may be made to the Martha Canfield Memorial Library or the Arlington Golf Association through the office of the Mahar and Son Funeral Home, 628 Main St., Bennington, VT 05201.
