Deepest sympathies to the Malott and Cook families. Rosalie has had a special place in my heart since the day I met her. She was the most wonderful person and the best co-worker. We worked together at SJS Federal Savings Bank for many years. She was my mentor and friend. I am still in banking and credit her with teaching me the fundamentals and how to be a successful working woman. We had so many fun times together and I will always remember her fondly. Rest in peace my dear friend. I love you.

Our sympathy and condolences to Herb and his family, and to Steve, Julie and Susan and their families. Rosalie was kind and loving to everyone she knew. She was instantly a friend within minutes of the first time many of us met her. She was a joy to be around and brought happiness into many lives.
