Margaret Emilie (Brady) Rosberg, born February 6, 1919, passed peacefully on May 13, 2020. She was a long-time resident of Westwood Hills, KS before moving to Silvercrest at Deer Creek in Overland Park. Margaret always claimed her greatest accomplishment was bringing 10 healthy children into the world with her husband of 67 years, Gustave S. Rosberg, who preceded her in death in 2007. She now shares eternal life with Gus and two of her sons who, also preceded her in death, Richard (2009) and Joe (2014). Surviving children include four in the KC area, Carol Charismas, Tom (wife, Connie), Ken (wife, Janet) and Jim (wife, Nikki) and four out of town (Sr. Mary Margaret, C.V.I. (Houston, TX), Theresa Sullivan (husband, Louis - Phoenix, AZ), Bob (Dallas, TX) and Elizabeth Klarich (husband, David - Billings, MT). Her extended family includes 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild, plus numerous relatives particularly in the St. Louis area. Once all her children were in school full-time, Margaret took her smile and positive outlook to a career outside the home, becoming affectionately known as the “Candy Lady” as she sold Russell Stover Candies first for the Jones Store in Prairie Village, KS until July, 1984 and then directly for Russell Stover in KC, MO.

With sincere sympathy to Margaret's family. We were residents of Westwood Hills and then at the Marseilles Apts. Margaret was a delight to know and a special person with whom to visit and laugh and share good times. May the memories you have of her give you peace and happiness.
