OBITUARIES DETAIL

Rosemary "Rosie" Erickson, Age :87

Oct 04,1931---Nov 24,2018

Rosemary “Rosie” Erickson, age 87, peacefully passed on Saturday morning, November 24, 2018, surrounded by love and prayers, at Prairie Elder Care, in Overland Park, KS.

 

Rosie will forever be known as “Mom” or sometimes “Thelma”, to me, her only child, Kay Erickson; “Grandma” to her granddaughter, Emily Carpenter (Nick) and “Gurmmy” to her granddaughter, Gretchen Fiebig. Born in Wisconsin on October 4, 1931, to Elizabeth “Lilly” & John Lennartz, she grew up as the baby of the family, with her siblings, Bette, Ruth, John & Joe in Cedarburg, WI.

 

After graduating from Cedarburg High School in 1950 she worked until 1961 when she decided to be the best darn mom she could be until I graduated from high school. In 1978 we moved to Salem, OR to enjoy the Pacific Northwest.  Always full of energy, & organized like no other woman I know, with a list for everything, she began a second career, as a Payroll Specialist at Chemeketa Community College, in Salem.  In 1998, she retired & moved back to the Midwest to enjoy her family.

 

She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers, sister, Bette, and grandson Eric Andrew Fiebig.

 

Mom-We can’t thank you enough for the fun, for the laughs, for always listening & listening, for your willingness to always lend a hand, and most of all, for your unconditional support- you made our lives so much better!   You’d rather do something for someone else than for yourself. Your faith was so important to you; always a Rosary in your hand, and never a Mass missed.

 

As we always said at the end of each and every phone conversation, when we didn’t live near each other, “Love you, miss you”.  Boy will we miss you.

Now it’s finally your turn to be at the top of the list, you made it- you’re in Heaven. No more worries, no more pain.  You deserve it.  Many thanks to both Compassionate Care Hospice & Prairie Elder Care for caring for you with the utmost dignity, kindness & respect in your last month here on earth.
