Rosalie Christine Jaszczak, 81

Rosalie Christine Jaszczak, 81, passed away on June 24, 2021, at the Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville, MN. She was born in Hallock, MN on September 16, 1940. She was raised in Orleans, attended Lancaster Public School, and graduated in 1959. Rosalie devoted her life taking care of others. Her first job was a nanny for a family in Minneapolis. Later, Rosalie moved to Tolstoy where she took care of Fr. Mandeka for about 22 years. She continued to care for the elderly in northern North Dakota around the Walhalla and Grand Forks area before moving to Apple Valley. For the past several years she made her home at the Apple Valley Villa assisted living center in Apple Valley, MN. If Rosalie was not giving her time volunteering to help others whenever possible, she was busy crocheting gifts for others. Rosalie was famous for her homemade cards. She loved to make her own cards because she got to say what she wanted to say. Rosalie also enjoyed playing cards, working on puzzles, making jewelry, coloring, and cats. One of Rosalie’s favorite memories was her road trip with her sister, Angie. They stopped at many sites such as Mount Rushmore, Buffalo Bill’s Museum and visited their cousin in Colorado. Rosalie always had a warm presence to her and will always be remembered for her cheerful smile, friendly personality, and strong faith. She was preceded in death by her parents, Theresa and Charles Jaszczak, three brothers: John, Peter, and Casmier. She is survived by brothers Joseph and wife Catharine of Apple Valley, MN, Leo, of Farmington, MN, and sister Angie Gibson, of Farmington, MN, sisters-in-law, Marilyn (wife of Casmier), of Las Vegas, NV, Linda Scorsone (wife of John), of North Platt, NB, and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
