Rosann worked as a medical transcriptionist for over 20 years with most of that time being at St. Luke's Pediatrics.
Rosann lived for time spent with her family. Her favorite title was "grandma." She loved making Christmas wreaths and goodies with her granddaughters. She liked baking and many people enjoyed her treats at the St. Jude Sweet Corn Festival. She was a big advocate for Catholic education, and the unborn.
