Rosalie was a wonderful lady & always had a smile on her face. She helped run the clerk’s office for years. I will say some prayers for Rosalie & her family.

Bonnie, Cindy and the entire family, my thoughts & prayers are with you for comfort. Rosalie was a great employee, but a wonderful friend. She was missed daily after her retirement. Her stories always made us laugh. She absolutely loved her family more than anything!! She would always tell me about your trips and the fun crazy things you all did like zip lining and standing out above the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls. I never had to worry when a jury trial went late because she absolutely loved her job too. Our weekly Sunday morning phone calls were such a highlight of my week, we would laugh and cry! The trainings I took her with me for work, she always made so much more fun. Somehow before the training was over, she would end up on stage singing with the band. I know how much I will miss her! Remember her with her smile and laughter and pray the good times get you through the sadness. She will never be forgotten but live in our hearts forever. Rest In Peace Rosiegirl!!

My deepest sympathy in the loss of Rosie, we grew up together in Fulton and talked sometimes. May God shine his perpetual light on her.
