Obituary - FREDA ELIZABETH ROSEN

 


Freda Elizabeth “Mimi” Rosen, age 78, passed away peacefully and comfortably with family by her side in San Marcos, California. She was born in Washington, D.C. on March 18, 1937, to the late Sophie and Mike Weber and was the oldest of four siblings. She was adored by her three brothers, Paul (Ginger) Weber of Winter Park, Norman Weber of Las Vegas and David (Jill) Weber of Maryland. She enjoyed helping and watching her younger brothers grow up and loved them very much.

Mrs. Rosen married the love of her life at 20, and worked as a secretary for the CIA, while her husband, Col. Ronald Rosen, went to Dental school. During his career with the Air Force, they traveled to the Azores, Germany and many stops in the States including Massachusetts, California and Florida. They retired and built their dream home in Indialantic, Fla.

One of her many joys was her love of cooking. Mrs. Rosen passed theses skills down to her children and grandchildren. Son Howard works in the culinary field and son Robert knows his way around the kitchen. In her later days, she would enjoy trying “all the experiments” her grandchildren would cook.

During the late 90s she would travel frequently to California to see Robert and Cathy and her grandkids. She didn’t want to miss a moment of their lives. During her California trips, she became close friends to many wonderful people whom she enjoyed and loved very much. She ultimately relocated to California in 2014 to be with Robert and Cathy and their three children.

Over the last two years, as her health began to fail, she faced many medical challenges. However, she was the ultimate fighter and fought valiantly until the end.

She was predeceased by her husband, Col. Ronald Rosen, USAF Ret. in 1993, and is survived by her children, Pam Rosen (Carl) of Orlando, Howard (Maggie) Rosen of New Jersey and Rob (Cathy) Rosen of San Marcos, Calif.; and four grandchildren, Corey, Ronnie, Gehrig and Ryan.

During her final days, she was cared for by amazing people. They kept her comfortable and attended to her every need—Berta, Edna, Anna, Pinky and Barb... Love you all.

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.
