    What a Kool Lady, Interesting Life this young lady had. Rosie obviously was not handed a silver platter in her life, she worked for everything and did what others only dream of while raising 4 children ! Wow....

    RIP....

    What a great story! Neither men nor women are like this any more, and it's a shame because if we were, the country probably would be in better shape--and we ourselves certainly would be.

    Thanks Ryan for sharing. RIP Rosie our thought are with you and your family. This qoute from her daughter speaks volumes : "She wasn't afraid of anything. We just trusted everything she did."

    Any gal who drove demo cars is A-OK in my book. Sounds like she was up to any challenge life brought her way. Some wouldn't call her a "success". I say that is exactly what she was, lived life on her terms in a time when it wasn't fashionable.
    RIP

    Neat story about a women that seemed to meet every challenge asking for no quarter. I am sure her children are very proud of her and rightfully so. RIP

    LOVE that pic! As a derby veteran of 13 years, I know what she was up against. Then I went into announcing the events and LOVED it when the ladies mixed in with the guys. Boy did I rub it into the guys when they came out on top......

    Great story of a great lady. Even though I never got to meet her, I feel like I knew her and will miss her.

    Way to go Rosie! You played it right............ Now R.I.P.
