  1. To Rose Anne’s family and my dear cousins. II was shocked to hear that Rose Ann had died so suddenly. I am so glad Myrna and I keep in touch, and she let me know as soon as possible. I can only imagine what a difficult time this is for you. My thoughts and prayers and heart go out to you. I have many fond memories of Rosie and me spending time together when we were kids, and as young adults in Mason City when I was in nurse’s training. She and Jeannie made sure I had a life away from school, the hospital and the dorm.

    May you find peace in knowing that there are many who are thinking of you at this sad time.

    Much love,

    Mary Ramsden

  2. Dear family of Rose Anne,

    It was unbelievable to hear that Rose Anne had passed away. She was always a friend to so many of us who went to school with her at St. Mary’s in Roseville, Iowa. I know that you all were aware of what she meant to us in Iowa.

    I hope and pray that all goes well for you in these days of grieving. Know that the prayers of may people are with you.
