    Bob and I went through Jackson & Clinton Prairie and I can remember that in grade school Rosie (as we called her) was one of our “room mothers” who helped with our parties and events and went on our field trips with us. She was popular with the kids in our class. Later I worked with Julie at Crellin Plastics. Blessings on your families today as you make the arrangement to send Rosie home. Trace

    My sincere and warm condolences to her family and friends. I was so fortunate to briefly visit with her during my summer return to the Frankfort area. Her smile always greeted me with such a welcome as she did in my childhood when we gathered with Cathy at her farm. Wonderful and sweet memories.
