Rosalia will be greatly missed. We loved seeing her every time she visited us at the office of Kramer & Leonard. She was such a fun person. We really enjoyed her sarcasm. I'm glad I was able to know her. She will not be forgotten.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Dunn passing, this summer I was able to see her at the Franciscan ER, she still was beautiful as I remembered.
Just two days ago I was thinking, I should send Mrs. Dunn a Christmas New Year card and planned on doing so, I was shocked to read the paper, and sorry I had not done that earlier.
95 years is a long time but know that not long enough for her family and that they will really miss her as will anyone who knew her. She was one of our groups favorite mothers and accepted all of us. Rest Mrs. Dunn..

Rosalia was a delightful, interesting, warm and loving woman. I wish I had the opportunity to have known her longer. I will remember her sweet and spunky spirit.

Patti, I remember way back in 1994 sitting on back porch admiring your mom's garden. Asked her advise on my prairie rose bush and she gave me one of her gardening books. I still have it. She had a soft heart under a hard shell. My deepest sympathy to you and the boys.
