Rest in heaven Rosie. Will always remember you fussing at Clare and I for our mischievous ways back in the day. Give your Mom and Dad a hug for me; they were always so kind to all of us, especially Gus. Hold a seat for Clare and I; we'll get there one day. God bless you.

My sincere condolences to the Uecker family upon their loss. I have not seen Rose in many years but remember her as one of the most competent persons I have met. She and Lisa McIntyre were the "nerve center" of the Lutheran Hospital Medical Staff and I am sure Rose knew more about the function of that organization than any administrator, attorney, or regulator and that the entire system would have collapsed without her. I remember her as efficient, organized, helpful, and, at times, prescient (she reminded me a bit of the "Radar" character on MASH).I recall her meeting me at her parent's home for house calls and know she was devoted to her family. Without question, our community was blessed by her presence and I pray for the repose of her soul.
