Rosie retired from Belleville Area College (now SWIC) in 1999 after 29 years running the medical assistant program. She was a member of the Turkey Hill Grange, the St. Clair Chapter Medical Assistants, the Illinois Society of Medical Assistants and the American Association of Medical Assistants.
Rosie lived life to the fullest – she enjoyed traveling, games of chance, spoiling her grandchildren and keeping in touch with her extended family. She always had more energy than everyone else and her presence will be sorely missed by all.

So sorry to hear of Rose’s death. Our paths have crossed many times over the years. I think she went to school with my sister in law, Marilyn Wottowa Wacholtz (deceased) We had many mutual friends through the years.
She had such a bubbly personality and will be missed by so many.
Please accept our sympathy.

I graduated from Rose’s program Class of 1977 at BAC and have many fond memories of her. She was full of energy and very encouraging. ( I also recall her visiting at Sutter Clinic in STL where I was placed for practicum and telling me my white shoes needed polishing.). Sympathy to your family. She helped shape many lives.
