I am so sorry to hear of Rosalie’s passing. She was a wonderful woman and boss when I worked under her leadership at FNCB in W-B. I still remember all her stories that made me laugh about her sweet mom, beloved husband, and her young children(at the time). This was 20plus years ago. God bless and comfort the family. Again, my deepest condolences. ~~Sharon B.
