My husband John worked at TI for many years with Rosalie and had the utmost respect for her. He encouraged me to go to work there, too, and Rosalie was my supervisor! I learned everything about Occupational Health Nursing from her. We became fast friends, and so did our husbands. Together, we made many great memories. I cannot express in words what the loss of my friend means to me, but I am grateful to God for sharing in her life. She was the smartest, funniest, most delightful, caring human being! Rosalie, you have earned your reward in heaven, but will remain in my heart forever. My condolences to Jack and all her much-loved family.

Rosalie Getz has been a part of my life since the day I was born. She was the most kindhearted, fun loving, supportive and smart woman I have ever met. She and Jack were the perfect match and they have raised three amazing and accomplished daughters together. Every time I think of Rosalie it makes me smile. What a true gift she was to all who were lucky enough to know her and call her a friend❤ I will miss you Rosalie and look forward to the day we all meet again!

Rosalie was such a dear friend to us. She was always so pleasant and so much fun to be around. Even though she is better off now, we will miss her greatly. In the late 1960's , Rosalie and her husband Jack were our very first neighbors in Dallas, Texas and we have been very close friends every since. We have been on many cruises and bus tours together over the years. Many of our fondest memories are our times with Rosalie and Jack. Thank you Rosalie. Frank & Billie Golden

So many incredible memories from childhood on up to adulthood...The summers we spent in Plano where Aunt Rosalie always made sure we were having fun. There was never a dull moment if it was up to her! The family gatherings as we all were growing older...she never missed a one! She was generous, loving and one of the kindest souls I have ever known. Her smile and her laughter are engraved in my heart. There is no doubt she isn't getting all kinds of parties together in Heaven...We Love you with all our hearts
