  18. Rita Palazzi Yee

    I've known Rosetta since I was a little girl. She was good friends with my mom, went to the same church we did, and was the aide at Caddie Woodlawn. I'll never forget her yelling at me and Bobby Biederman for sliding down the hill to the high school when school got out! She forgave us though! *smile* She was such a sweetheart. My prayers go out to her family.
