She raised 4 children in Brookfield, WI. Rose Marie was a devoted parishioner of St. Dominic Catholic Parish, where she was a member of the choir and President of the Mother’s Guild.

Rose Marie was a devoted wife and mother who enjoyed family, friends, cooking for many while surrounded by her grandchildren. Her personality and great sense of humor often lit up the room. She was strong-willed, determined, and rarely took no for an answer! She will be missed by many.
