Obituary of RoseMarie Cecile Getz
Our Mom was first a daughter, a sister, then a wife, then a mother, then a grandmother & a great grandmother. She was always a best friend to anyone who needed her. She would have said she was a loner, but we know better. We've seen and heard from all the people that love her, she had so much love to give. RoseMarie was and amazing cook & baker, the scent of fresh bake bread or homemade soup, was always lingering in our home. RoseMarie was a music lover. She sang, wrote & played music, and she was wonderful at it....in fact she wanted to be the Partridge Family in real life. RoseMarie loved all her animals so much so, that at around the age of 3 or 4 years, she couldn't understand why her mom was upset when she wanted to take her pet chicken in the car for a ride from the farm to the city to go grocery shopping. She had a pet pig she would give her bubble gum to, and then save the gum to give to the pig the next day. We can speak from a daughters perspective on our beautiful Mother, but she was much more than our Mother, sister, grandmother, daughter. RoseMarie is a unique loving soul, a strong woman, that blessed all of our lives more than anyone could ever, ever imagine. She laughed without reservation, she cried with her whole heart, she felt with her whole being, & she danced like no one was watching. She had a compassion for others and a sense of what always was the right thing to do by another soul.
We love you Mommy
