Rosemarie Nuser

nuser_rosie.jpg (5328 bytes)Rosemarie Nuser (Baxter) of Englewood, FL, formerly of St. Johns, MI. Wonderful grandmother, mother and sister died peacefully with family and friends by her side, Sunday, January 28, 2007, at age 75. Rosie was born August 5, 1931 to Fred and Rose Baxter in Lansing. In 1949 Rosie graduated from Lansing Eastern and married James, which began an exciting 55 years of marriage. Together Jim and Rosie owned and operated "The Roadhouse" restaurant for 25-plus years in St. Johns, MI and raised their two daughters. Rosie enjoyed traveling the world and playing golf, cards, and the slots, all with family and her many, many friends over the years. To know Rosie was to love her; the giggly laugh, and contagious smile, often accompanied by stories of sinking a long putt, while she sipped her occasional 'iced' beer.

Rosie is survived by her sister Betty (Floyd) Skinner of Swartz Creek, MI; daughter Patti (Walt) Amick of Arvada, CO; 7 grandchildren (Jason, Sam, Ryan, Debra, Jon, Josh and Gabe); 7 great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and friends both north and south. Rosie was welcomed to heaven by her husband James O. Nuser, daughter Cathy M. Colthorp, sister Juanita Assiff and brother Richard Baxter.

A memorial service will be held 12 Noon, Saturday, February 3, 2007 at the Osgood Funeral Home, St. Johns. A memorial will also be held February 8 at the Alameda Isles Community Center in Englewood.
