Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Rest in peace my sweet beautiful sister-in-law. You are longer in pain. I will always treasure the memories of our trips to Wyoming and Colorado to visit you, Mickey and my amazing nephews and nieces. My love to Kevin and Gugu, Mark and Betty, Lynn and Tim, David, Darin and Laura. Also their beautiful children. My prayers are with you.

  2. I understand that Rosalie wasn’t herself the last several years as a result of her battle with Alzheimer’s. But when we think if Rosalie, it will always be with fond memories of a gracious and happy girl always concerned more for others than for herself. She always had a smile and she possessed a delightful, and occasionally a wicked sense of humor. Rest in piece, cousin, knowing you did right by everyone you met. To her kids and grandkids, please know how blessed you were to have her in your lives, and accept our deepest sympathy for your loss.

  3. Our mom lost her parents in her early twenties and she always told us that it is something that you never get over – somehow with time you put it in a place of your heart where it doesn’t hurt so much. Then you can remember the good times – the way your mom’s laugh lit up the room (Aunt Rosalie had a great laugh), her sense of humor, her faith, her inner strength and her deep love for her family. I wish that for all of you.

  4. I work at The Denver Hospice and worked with Rosalie for many years. She is a lovely person and served the mission of TDH well in her role.

  5. Rosalie was a former Volunteer Coordinator for The Denver Hospice. Although I did not know her personally, as the current Volunteer Manager I know how truly precious her impact was to not only our volunteers but the patients and families who she so dutifully served with the utmost compassion. Wishing for peace to you and your family. Please let us know how we may help you during this time.

  6. Rosalie was the first volunteer coordinator I worked with in my volunteering with The Denver Hospice. She was always a pleasure to work with. Rosalie had a gentle way and a good sense of humor. May she rest in peace.

  7. When I think of my Aunt Rosalie, I am reminded of her beautiful soft voice, and her caring and compassionate nature. Growing up, now and then I’d get a card from her when I needed it the most. She would tell me that I would be ok…that she was praying for me, and that god was on my side always. I saved every one, and they meant so much then, even more now. When Rosalie would visit, seeing her and her brother (my Grandfather, Bobby George) together was a gift in itself. They may not have remembered things exactly the same, but you always learned something you never knew before, and that was never a bad thing! My heart breaks for all who knew her, especially my Erickson cousins. Thinking of you all so much this week. Xoxo

  8. Such sweet lady, always in a good mood and willing to help; I had the pleasure of working with Rosalie when I became a volunteer for Hospice of Metro Denver, in 2000. Always with a smile on her face, she helped many of us volunteers who were just starting. I am sorry I cannot attend her memorial service. My condolences to her family.
