Rosella was born in Checotah, Oklahoma on July 28, 1926. As a young child she traveled with her family from Oklahoma to California looking for work during the Great Depression. Her love in life was her family, and she will always be remembered as “Grandma.” Her gift for sewing has left us with so many cherished items. She will be dearly missed.
