Though you are not with us physically your spirit will live on in our hearts. You were there for all of our new beginnings and fresh starts and will be in spirit. You gave us the strength and wisdom we needed to fulfill our hopes and dreams. We will find you when the birds sing and the cool summer breeze blows. When the sun kisses our cheeks, we will think of you and know that you are there. We will look forward to being reunited with you in god's grace. In our own time, in a different place.


Rosie was born and raised in Anaconda, Mt. She was one of six children. She Married right out of high school to her longtime friend Raymond Brown and had 5 beautiful children. Rosie not only was a homemaker, but she also worked in the healthcare field as a CNA. Her smile, laugh and high spirits were contagious. She was a fun loving, outgoing, wonderful lady, who enjoyed the great outdoors like fishing and camping teaching her kids how to play sports and games. She made amazing memories with her friends playing shuffleboard, darts and group cards. Most of all she loved her family.


She will live long in the hearts of all those who came to know Rosie. When she couldn't find the sunshine, she became the sunshine. She was well loved by all of her friends and family.
