RoseMarie grew up in Webster, S.D., and graduated from high school in May 1952 and within a month was a nursing student at St. John’s School of Nursing in Huron, S.D. She graduated in 1955 and continued to be a registered nurse for the next 55 years. She devoted her life to her career and family. Mom met dad, Tom, in May 1962 on a blind date and they were married in December. Mom spent two years in the U.S. Air Force Reserve as a captain, however she was honorably discharged due to starting a family. Mom’s enjoyments in life were spending time with her family, especially the grandchildren, traveling and dancing the polka with her husband. She also enjoyed gathering garden flowers, which she often shared with others, and showing kindness to many in only a way that “Rose” could do.
RoseMarie is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Thomas E. Frank. She was the loving mother of five children, Dawnmarie (Stephen) Gorman Frank of Milwaukee, Scott (Amy) Frank of Fredonia, Lance (Jessica Oldham) Frank of Stevens Point, Bridget (Eric) Nagorsen of Belgium, WI, and Valerie (John) Aspenleiter of Jackson. She was the very proud grandmother of Sophia, 11, John “Jeep,” 8, Elijah, 3, Aspenleiter; Audrey, 8, Ava, 6, Nagorsen; Adriana, 6, Annemarie, 2, Frank. She was the loving sister of Lillian Bridger of St. Paul, Minn.
She is further survived by an abundance of in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, colleagues and patients who were all touched by the kindness of mom and will miss her dearly.
She was preceded in death by her loving sister, Dolores K. Pesall, and beloved brothers, Jerome, Raymond and Edmund Pesall.
