The fact that she loved children made her the best Aunt and Great Aunt. Rosi was the family historian. She knew everyone’s birthday and anniversary. She loved babysitting her nieces and nephews. She had a love for cooking, collecting recipes, drawing, crafts, going to the movies, music and shopping with her sister for the holiday and making her special sausage treats. She loved being with her family and going to family events and enjoyed her neighbors in her apartment building. Her deepest love was caring for her brother.
Rosi was predeceased by her parents, Stella and Donald Lyons, Sr., and sisters Theresa Mae and Donna Lee. Rosi is an Aunt to her niece Rhonda McKamey, nephews Vaughn McKamey, Jr. and Michael McKamey. She is a great Aunt to 4 great nieces (Brenna, Lydia, Katie and Jessie) and 4 great nephews (Samuel, Colin, Maxwell and Will).
