To the families of Rosembaum sisters, Margaret, Dorothy, & Marian.
It brings me great sadness to lose such fast friends and special people, two Sigma Kappa sisters. I was sorry I could not visit Margaret after Marian's funeral, but I have been ill for for sometime. This week (Aug.10-13) I was hospitalized for heart problems, so i missed her funeral and seeing you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all for now and some time ahead. I know you are a loving and supportive family and God will grant you peace.
Loving, Mary Jo Howells

Margaret was my aunt but also served as a seragate mother for me and my other brothers and all her nephews and nieces. We all were made to feel like we were the most important and loved relative. I have personal memories as do many of my cousins of doing pot holders and ceramics with Margaret in her basement. She always had a tremendous giving spirit and would start shopping for Christmas in September where she would buy for her whole extended family with no thought to the expense. She treated us better than family Wes and Margaret were an ideal Godly couple, seldom did they talk religion but always did they demonstrate Jesus Love for others and especially the idea of making others more important than yourself.
We would come to their house typically on a Friday night and would not leave until Sunday afternoon. After we would leave she would spend the remainder of the day trying to get all the wash done and the house back in order for the next guests. When we left we would always have more wisdom than we came whether it be about life or astronomy or just loving your neighbor. She and Wes would not only feed us spiritually but physically and their garden was famous for huge tomatoes and awesome rubbarb. Their house was an awesome boarding house for family and friends and their garden was a community garden. I remember how she served her mother for many years waiting on her tirelessly taking her to grocery stores and any doctor appointments. I have a favorite Christian movie and its name is Joshua. It is a story of man who emulated Jesus and came to earth in our modern days. If Joshua was a real man he would be Wes and if Joshua was married he would be married to Margaret. I loved them and so do all of her neighbors Family and Friends they broke the mold when God took them home. I Know she felt abandoned when Wes died but I cant wait to see them both in heaven. Well done good and faith servants as the last of John and Sarah Rosenbaum's children head home. I believe John, Jim , Margaret , Marian, and Dorothy all put their faith in Jesus and believed in him for their salvation and that gives me peace in their departure knowing I will see them again.

We all will miss you Margaret and Wes.

It's difficult to put into words what my Auntie Margie meant to me. She and my Uncle Lewy were like second parents to us. As kids we'd be so excited to go to Peoria because we knew Auntie Margaret would always sit on the floor and play with us, teach us how to make pottery, needle point, play Clue, put together puzzles and always take us to Mister Donut for breakfast. She never forgot a birthday and bought us just as many, if not more, Christmas gifts as our parents. She and my uncle were there for every special occasion in our lives and always lent their support for the bad ones. I don't recall Auntie Margaret ever raising her voice at me, which would be warranted as I followed her around like her dog Babe. Her heart and home were filled with love. She was an amazing human being and we were so lucky to have her as our aunt. Thank you to Ric and his wife for taking such wonderful care of her - God bless you. Kristin Helf Risner

I did not have the privilege of meeting Mrs. Wessel, I heard nothing but good things about her from our neighbors. We bought the house she and her beloved husband shared and I can feel the love that she left in this home. My prayers are with the family.

I started working at White Farm Equipment in 1974 at the age of 19 where I met Margaret and we became instant friends. We worked together for 11 years and I always told her she finished raising me. Age doesn't matter in friendship and I gained words of wisdom from her so many times throughout the years.

We were involved in crafts and had some great times with her local neices and nephews who gathered on Thursday evenings to do ceramics at her house years ago. She and Wes became good friends over the years to me and Fred, and we feel honored to have known them both. I know some the local neices and nephews and other family, but I came to know the rest of the family through Margaret, who loved to talk about them and their accomplishments on almost every visit. No group had a better cheerleader.

So many of my Christmas decorations (mostly angels of some sort) were gifts made by Marg and I will cherish them forever. I am so glad I was able to visit with her on her birthday just two weeks before she died. Little did I know it would be the last time. I am so glad I gave her an extra hug. I am sure heaven heard the words "This is beautious" in the way only Marg could say it.

Tina and Rick - Thank you for making Margaret's last days full of love. She didn't have to tell me - I could see and hear it. Margaret Wessel was one of a kind. She is again with Wes, Babe, Marion, Dort, John, Jim and her mom and dad, but most importantly she is home with her heavenly father.

To Margaret's family -Thank you for sharing her with me. I will miss her for the rest of my life.
