MINNESOTA CITY, Minn. — Rose Ramin, 80, of Minnesota City passed away Dec. 13, 2018, while enjoying time with her family in Isanti, Minn.
Rosemary was born Jan. 5, 1938, to Pete and Cecilia Majerus of Elba, Minn. Rose was a graduate of St. Charles High School. Rose married Paul Rivers and opened a restaurant and well-known hangout in Rollingstone, The Red Rose. Paul and Rose later divorced and Rose re-married Ronald Ramin, who preceded her in death Oct. 14, 2016.
Rose always enjoyed the simplicity and beauty of the outdoors. A great part of her life was spent at the campground with her family and friends, fishing on the Mississippi, tending to her beautiful gardens, and taking her morning strolls down Highway 61. When she wasn’t outdoors you could find her playing piano, sewing, cross stitching, or baking. From her famous Christmas wreath sweet rolls, to her grandchildren’s favorites, her home and cookie jar, was always filled with the best aromas and treats.
Rose was an active member of the Rollingstone Community, eventually retiring from her book keeping position at the High Plaines Co-Op in December of 1999. She continued with her community involvement and took joy in being the organist for the Holy Trinity Catholic Church for over 35 years. Every Saturday evening she enjoyed attending Mass, and you could always find her driving through town, making sure all was well and in order. There was never a time she didn’t have someone to see or somewhere to go. She will be deeply missed by all who had the opportunity to know and love her.
Rose is lovingly survived by her children, Suzanne (John) Rizzo and Linda (George) Wright; grandchildren, Courtney Schneider (John Schwab), Brittany (Adam) Van Iten, Samantha Rizzo, Grant Wright, Jacob Wright, and Grace Wright; great-grandchildren, Macie Van Iten and Kasson Van Iten.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and husband, Ron.
Services for Rose will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Rollingstone, Minn. Services will then be carried over to the Community Center for a “celebration of life” social.
