Rose Marie Roeske

Posted: Thursday, June 29, 2000

Soldotna resident Rose Marie "Rorie" Roeske died Monday, June 26, 2000, at her home in Soldotna, after a long battle with systemic lupus. She was 46.

At her request, there will be no services.

Mrs. Roeske was born March 3, 1954, in Shelby, Ohio, the daughter of Henry and Madeline Frankl. She was a graduate of St. Mary's Catholic School, Shelby High School and Bowling Green State University, receiving a bachelor's of science degree in education.

In 1976, she moved to Soldotna. She worked for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District as a special services teacher. She retired from teaching in 1998 from Skyview High School. She then worked for the Independent Living Center from 1999-2000.

"She had an unending devotion to her students and clients that went far beyond what was required," her family said. "Rose enjoyed quilting, sewing and crafts. Rose was one of, if not the most giving and loving individuals in creation. She believed with all of her being that every individual was capable and worthy of anything. It was Rose's wish that in lieu of flowers or a memorial that all the individuals that her love touched, reach out in love to all those around them."

Mrs. Roeske was preceded in death by her brother Patrick Frankl.

She is survived by her husband of eight years, Rick of Soldotna; daughter Sarah Shearer of Soldotna; her parents of Shelby, Ohio; sisters, Marjorie Scorvonic of Columbus, Ohio, Doreen Frankl of Columbus, Pam Carver of Victorville, Calif., Anna Sprout of Columbus, Annette Beavers of Tucson, Ariz., Bernadette Gorman of Columbus; brothers, Mike Frankl of Mansfield, Ohio, Hank Frankl of Columbus, Brian Frankl of Shelby, and Eric Frankl of New Haven, Ind.; and 19 nieces and nephews.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
