I remember a strong willed, strong minded mother of ten, that could tell you stories and keep you laughing with that German accent of hers. Being she had to "cook for a small army" you were always told to grab a plate if you ever stopped by, hungry or not she could guilt you into eating. She always made you feel welcome. She has left a village of children behind to carry on, which I'm sure she will watch over. Carry on Rose!
