What a fine person who, for 12 years, was a colleague and companion in the New England Provincial's Office. She was always part of the mission, full of good humor and encouragement, with a careful sensitivity. So much of this she has received from God and her communities in life, and she brings all of it home.

Rosalie's gift t to me was the joy she always showed when we would meet. We were teen agers when we met, traveled many different roads including each being a Sister of Notre Dame, and in recent years met again. I believe that Rosalie is now with the Good God. Rest in well-deserved Peace Rosalie. Ellen
