Rosalie loved life and loved her family. She was hospitable, warm and welcoming, making others feel comfortable and cared for. She always provided a place called home. She enjoyed spending time with her loved ones playing games, laughing and dancing. She was a ball room dancer and in her younger years had an opportunity to dance professionally. While always a lady, she was brave, strong and feisty. She often made others laugh without even trying.
Rosalie is survived by her children, Donna Garraffa of Kingston, John W. Fagerstrom, III and his partner Melinda Robinson of Glenford, and Carl Fagerstrom of Kingston, three generations of grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and other dear family members.
