The most important thing to Rosella was her faith in Christ.
She accepted the Lord at a young age, and her faith never wavered.
John and Rosella loved singing their favorite hymns together, which they felt was their ministry to others.
Rosella lived her life as a servant, setting an example of a Christ-like heart.
She gave selflessly to others through her work with senior services.

Rosella was a wonderful and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
Every day she prayed for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
