02 Jul Rosie Sharon Yamaguchi
Rosie returned to her heavenly father on her birthday, June 30, 2019. She was born in Price, Utah to Glen and Alice Atwood on June 30, 1949.
Rosie was a very loving and caring person, always thinking of others. She created many projects which she gave away as donations counting well over 1000. Rosie was great at remembering birthdays and she always created something to give as a gift. If someone needed a special gift or hinted at something they would like, Rosie would stop what she was doing and make it for them. Rosie’s strong belief was charity which she demonstrated throughout her life.
Before her health started to fade, Rosie’s many work accomplishments included Operating Technician at Holy Cross Hospital, Social Services, secretary of Streator Chevrolet, secretary for BoCo’s and collections for a car dealer. Rosie attended the University of Utah and acquired at least 14 years of formal education. Due to her health Rosie could not pursue her dreams to become a child psychiatrist.
Rosie was old fashioned and loved the 40’s and 50’s era. It showed in her life, in her home, how she thought and what she did. She was always busy doing something constructive, imaginative, and useful. She was a very sensitive person, loving, compassionate and never wanted to hurt anyone. She loved her children dearly and believed they were a gift from God. She always yearned to have them near her. “Fear not for God is with thee all the days of my life.”
Rosie is a published author. She wrote “Memories not Forgotten” which entails her early years as a child and later as a teenager and the struggles she endured during those times. She also wrote five children’s stories which she did not have time to get published.
Although she struggled with health issues that prevented her from getting out much, spiritually she was strong, dedicated and loyal to her Catholic belief, family and dear friends. The word of God meant everything to her. She used the bible as a guideline in her life. She prayed every day and she loved deeply. The belief in God kept her strong and that goodness prevails over evil, always. She wanted to share her belief with others, which she did her whole life. She kept faith alive and expressed to others to never give up. She felt that she could always do more.
Rosie was preceded in death by her Parents and her sister. She leaves behind to cherish her memories: Her dear friend of 40 years; Cristy, two sons; Steven and Ryan (Jackie), daughter; Monique, two grandchildren; Kristina and Seth, brother; Robert (Kathy), sister; Sharla and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
