If you had the pleasure of knowing this beautiful soul you would know that her sense of humor, kind heart and smiling eyes were a gift to all that knew her. Her heart was big and she loved her family dearly. She also loved her church family. Being a devoted member of Sacred St. Francis de Sales Church she enjoyed the companionship of the ladies she got to know there. Her faith and commitment to God was a big part of her life.
Rosalie had a quick wit and a tack sharp memory. She would often tell stories of her childhood and was even featured in the book “Disappearing in North Adams”. Written by Joe Manning. The author was often amazed during their interviews, at how much she could remember about her years spent there and even assisted him on locating others for his book.
Rosalie loved the simple things in life and always encouraged us to take care of each other and those we were close to. She had a great faith and love for life, finding beauty in everyone she knew.
We will begin to remember not only that you died, but that you lived and that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
The funeral will be held from Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales Church on Friday, August 9, 2019 at 12 noon where the Liturgy of Christian Burial will be offered.
