Rosie was an avid reader, reading over 150 books a year.  She looked forward to playing Mahjong with her friends each week, and she loved to travel, taking trips throughout the US, Canada and Europe.

Rosie had a long professional career, starting as a civilian working for the U.S. Navy.  She then spent 27 years in the education field teaching computer classes for Lucky Lane and working as a para-professional in the Ladue School District.  Her final job was as a supervisor for the State of Missouri Department of Social Services.
