Rosalie Bergstrom

Rosalie Ann Bergstrom, 74, of Covington, Washington went peacefully with the Lord the morning of August 6, 2013. Rose was born on March 5, 1939 in Forbes, North Dakota. She graduated from Northome High School and was married to Sidney Allen Bergstrom of Kelliher, in 1957.

She was raised on a farm in Mizpah Minnesota. With 6 siblings, there was never a lack for conversation and a “friendly-fire” game of cards. She would drive all over the state to watch her grandkids play soccer, basketball and baseball. She liked filling her time with arts and crafts that she often gave away as gifts. Later in life, her love for gardening blossomed. Her yard was always a stunning display of color.

Her greatest accomplishments were her four children, Robert (Betty) Bergstrom of Silverdale, Marlene (Ernie) Mashburn of Tacoma, Crystal (Corey) Olson of Laguna Niguel, and Tom (Dee) Bergstrom of Federal Way.

Rosalie is preceded by her parents, Howard and Mildred Morrow of Mizpah, Minnesota, sisters Avis Nesset and Betty Reimer, also of Minnesota. She is survived by her brothers Ronald (Darlene) Morrow and Tim (Cindy) Morrow of Apache Junction, Arizona and her sisters Penny Buentemeier of Northome, Alice (Bill) Filipiak of Cohasset, her four children, seven grandchildren and one great granddaughter.

She will forever be missed and in our hearts.
