Shary was born on Oct. 3rd, 1945 in Kansas, USA. She was married to Gary Rosensteel with which she had two sons. She worked for many years as a secretary, raising a family as a housewife, and for many more years as a dog groomer. She was a committed mother, but a more committed follower of Jesus Christ.

She will always be remembered for her infectious smile and her warm soul.

You're in the arms of Jesus now and I take comfort in that. I will always miss the long talks we had years ago. You made me feel like I spoken with someone who spent their time with Jesus. You were always so kind and sweet to me when you visited with your boys when I was little, I'll never forget that. You'll be missed by so many and only God knows how many lives you touched with your love and kindness. See you when I get there, I can't wait.
Love always,
Your baby sister, Yvonne
