Rose Marie Burtch
Rose Marie Burtch (Rosie) passed away on July 25, 2020 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio. One of four siblings, she was born on October 4, 1935 in Toledo, Ohio to Gordon and Lucille (Kistner) Ferrell. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Family, especially her grandchildren were very important to her and she will be missed dearly by all of them. She was every one of her grandchildren’s biggest fans when she attended any of their events whether it was a sporting event or school play. She didn’t miss many of them. Her love for all children was evident in her work at Jerusalem School as a reader helping children read. She loved these children and they loved her. Many of them called her “Reader Rosie”!
