Rosene was a dear member of our Lititz TOPS club for many years. She often delighted us with stories of her life experiences. She had a lovely sense of humor. I was so glad to connect with her in March while I was recovering from knee replacement surgery. I always admired her beautiful hair and was glad to share that with her. Margaret Trimble

There are such good memories of Rosene from my childhood as she would come to practice her solos for church with my mother, Carrie Reifsnyder, the church organist. Thinking of her still makes me smile! All those choir rehearsals, wedding solos, etc. I know Rosene is serenading all the angels in heaven! I always thought Rosene and Vic made such a great couple. My deepest sympathy to the entire family with this tremendous loss, especially to Nancy, Lisa and Trina. Huge hugs to all of you! - Judith Ann (Reifsnyder) Kohler and Family

Dear Family of Rosene,
My mother, Helen, was her roommate at Luther Acres. She and Helen seemed to hit it off from the start. Since I live on the west coast I did not get to see her often but she was always smiling and so pleasant. It was easy to visit with both of them at the same time. I was saddened to hear of her passing. She most certainly brightened the room and was always smiling. May the grace of the Lord be with you all.
