I had the pleasure of working with Rozella for several years. No matter how hectic the office got, she remained calm and gracious. I know she will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to her family.

I've known Rosie since I was 3 years old, living across the street from the Hais family on Jackson Ave in U. City. Our families were very intertwined, and as I grew older, Rosie and Jerry asked me to babysit for Linda and Marc and later sell their home in Creve Coeur, and it always felt so good when I ran into her by chance through the years or saw her when Susie came to town. She was a sweet, loving, wonderful woman who specialized in being there for her family and friends. There are many mourning her passing and that won't change anytime soon. The only comfort is in knowing she is no longer suffering.

Like so many people, Rozella is who I went to when it was was time to buy an engagement and wedding rings. I had a radical idea of something way out of the box. Rozella let me talk and listened and gently and kindly moved me to a more traditional decision. Thank god I listened to her because Ruth loved ‘my’ choice. When I later told Ruth of my original idea, she rolled her eyes and said “please tell Mrs Lapp thank you for me”
She will be missed
