Rosalie A. Rose Truskowski, 73, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at Hospice House.

Born in Milwaukee, Wis., in 1939, she was the daughter of the late Anton and Anna Bozich. She attended Milwaukee schools and was a graduate of South Division High School.

She was an avid dancer and loved line dancing, polka dancing and ballroom dancing. Rose met her husband Anthony on the dance floor at the Eagles Club in Milwaukee. She enjoyed Tai Chi exercises and attending picnics at Triglav Slovenian Park.

She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Anthony; the Rosalie Angels including her three nieces, Sandra (Donald) Riggs, Karen (Dennis) DuChene, and Susan (Peter) Christy; her special nephew, Steven (Bonny) Truskowski; her brother-in-law, Jerry (Carol) Truskowski; her three sisters-in-law, Sharon Truskowski, Elaine Nichols and Arline Bozich; and many additional loving nieces, nephews and extended family.
