In loving memory of a wonderful person. I only knew Rosa a short time she was such special lady. So saddened for her loss. May memories with her be comforting to the family.

Rosie had fun decorating the tree for the Garden Club's float in Franklin's Christmas Parade.

In the garden club, Rosie was a marvel! She could always be relied on to get the job done, and her cheerful encouragement and steady good humor helped us all stay focused and also have fun. I feel fortunate to have known her for these past few years, and I will always remember her kindness, generosity, and patience. Rosie will be greatly missed by everyone who has known her.
