Rosalie K. (Boysen) Mantkowski, 67, of Huron, passed peacefully at 4:27 p.m. Friday, June 4, 2010, with family and friends in attendance after a lengthy illness.
Rosalie was a graduate of Port Clinton High School Class of 1960, belonged to Cochran's Majorettes, and was an upstanding member of Huron Eagles 2875. She was an avid reader and gardener. She also was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, devoted to friends and family. She was always there to help, whatever the need. She was often a sought after guest at gatherings, not only for her sparkling personality and great sense of humor, but also for her famous macaroni salad.
She is survived by her four sons, Michael (Renee), David, Stephen (Vicki), and Christopher; grandchildren, Justin, Ashlyn and Alex; her sister, MaryAnne (Roger) Mooney; sister-in-law, Joan (Mantkowski) (Larry) Butler; and nieces and nephews.
Rosalie was preceded in death by her husband, James T. Mantkowski; and her parents, Alvin and Lydia "Dolly" (Pluckhorn) Boysen.
A celebration of Rosalie's life will be 4-8 p.m. Tuesday at Huron Eagles, 2902 Cleveland Road West.
