Rosie had a passion for creating beautiful things. After being taught how to sew and knit by her mother in her early teens, she gained a lifelong hobby and skill.

She finally gave up bowling at the age of 93. One of Mom’s goals was to make it to 100, have a birthday party and to be the only one in the family to reach 100. She had a wonderful birthday party at The Aspen with many family and friends attending. It was a good day and she enjoyed it so much.
