Rosalie was preceded in death by husbands, Edward Oppenneer and Andrew Polaschik; brothers, Marvin, Robert, Edwin, and sister, Doloris.  She was also preceded in death by her sons Bill and Tom Oppenneer, and grandson, Kai Oppenneer.  She will be lovingly remembered by her children Ann Marie (Chuck) Birr, Jim Oppenneer, Jan Storms; and grandchildren, Heather Oppenneer, David Birr, and Amy Storms; and great-grandchildren, Skyler, Gabriella, and MacKenzie; and siblings, Donna, Gerald, Roger (Annmarie); step-brother, Charles (Barb), and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11 am Tuesday, December 22, at St. Mary Magdalen Parish, 1253 52nd St SE, with Fr Peter Vu as celebrant.  The family will greet relatives and friends at the church at 10 am prior to the mass.  Interment will follow at Resurrection Cemetery, 4100 Clyde Park SW, Wyoming.

Rosalie was a good neighbor and friend. I am lucky to have known her if only for a decade.
Please accept my sincere sympathy.
