Rosalie Rommelfanger

May 12, 1936 — April 3, 2024

Rosalie Rommelfanger, age 87, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at St. Luke's Hospice House in Kansas City, Missouri.

Rosalie Elizabeth Feuerborn was born on May 12, 1936, in Garnett, Kansas. She was the second of six children born to Matthew J. and Irene B. (Pickert) Feuerborn. Rosalie started school in the one-room Earnest Schoolhouse east of Garnett and then attended Irving Elementary until the Holy Angels Catholic School opened. She later graduated from Garnett High School. On July 4, 1957, Rosalie was united in marriage to Leonard Joseph Rommelfanger, in Garnett, Kansas. Their union was blessed with four children.

Throughout her working years, Rosalie worked a variety of jobs, such as working as a dental assistant after high school. While her children were young, she was able to stay at home with them until they started school. She later worked alongside Leonard in their business, Cardinal Service. Rosalie spent many years managing her dress shops, Mode O' Day and then Fashion Crossroads. She then worked as a waitress at Sherwood Inn and later at Tradewinds alongside her sisters. She fulfilled her needs to stay busy, serve others and be among friends in the community. Rosalie was a lifelong member of Holy Angels Catholic Church and the Altar Society. She enjoyed playing cards with friends and family.

Rosalie did not have the "usual" hobbies; she was never found to be idle. She loved people and never met a stranger. If you ever made a "ten minute" trip to the store with her, you understand what that meant. She was a proud grandmother and loved spending time with her grandkids. Family get-togethers were not complete without her homemade chicken and noodles, bread, and rice krispy treats.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Leonard on March 27, 2017, and two sisters, Lois Miller and Donna Carr.

Rosalie is survived by her children and their families: Karen Greiner and husband David of Bolivar, Missouri, Gary Rommelfanger and wife Kathy of Garnett, Kansas, Jeanine Troyer and husband Ken of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Alan Rommelfanger and wife Dr. Ramona Kyaw of Thousand Oaks, California, nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and five great great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Dorothy Lickteig and husband Cecil of Garnett, and two brothers, Leon Feuerborn of Altamont, Kansas and Carl Feuerborn of Eudora, Kansas, and many nieces and nephews.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 AM, Saturday, April 6, 2024, at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Garnett. A Rosary will be said at 6:00 PM Friday evening, at the Feuerborn Family Funeral Service Chapel in Garnett, followed by visitation.
