Alice Rosen

May 12, 1939 — April 12, 2018

Alice Beverly (Weigand) Rosen, 78, of Fort Ripley, MN went to be with her Lord on Thursday, April 12th, 2018. She was born on May 12, 1939 in Rice Lake, WI, to George and Kathryn Weigand. She married Gordon Rosen on May 28, 1960, at Stewart Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis.

Alice was a cosmetologist for many years. She managed the Senior Nutrition sites in Emily and Crosby for a number of years. She went on to many adventures in the retail trade, including a ten year stint as the manager and top salesperson of Cellular One in Little Falls, where she retired in 2002.

Alice and Gordon raised six children, and from this came sixteen grandchildren and twenty-one great grandchildren.

Alice loved to sew and made beautiful quilts. She also enjoyed crappie fishing with her husband and always wanted the boat in the middle of the weed bed because she said "It always feels like I have one on the line." She enjoyed playing games with her children and grandchildren.

Alice is survived by her husband, Gordon; and her children, Kathryn (Patrick) Condon of Crosby, MN, James (Sally) Jonsten of Cambridge, MN, Debra (Stephen) Thompson of Highland, MI, Jennifer Tschida of Little Falls, MN, Barbara (Harold) Blechinger of Lake Elmo, MN, and Joan Berry of Fort Ripley, MN. She is also survived by one sister, Berniece Yap of MS.

Alice was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Robert and James; two sisters, Beatrice, and a twin at birth; and a son-in-law, Charles Tschida.

A memorial service will be held at 11 AM on Tuesday, April 17, at Emily Wesleyan Church in Emily.
