She married the late Robert Edwin Gagnon on April 18, 1946 after his return from WWII. One of 10 children, she was the last living sibling of the Graves family. She is survived by her five children, Robert James, Bonnie Rose, Stephen Paul, Carol Ann Reynolds, and Nancy Sylene; 9 grandchildren, Aaron, Adam, Alexis, Alissa, Crystal, Hope, Julie, Laurie, Rachael; and sixteen great grandchildren; not to mention numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
Whether you knew her as Rosalie, wife, mom, grammy, aunt, or friend, she was devoted to her family. Above all, she was a loving wife and mother. All who knew her were touched and influenced by her gentle sweetness. She will be deeply missed by so many. Many of us are the people we are, because of her love and affection. We trust that she is at peace and joy with her beloved husband.
The family would like to thank Aunt Marion and Uncle Byron of Brattleboro for their devotion to mom. Also, Jeanne and John Lemieux, and Alice and Russ Moulton for always being there for her and dad --- true, devoted friends --- thank you so much. We would like to thank medical folks of Community Health & Hospice of Dover-Foxcroft, in particular Karen, Joy, Marty, Marsha and Sophie; Guilford Medical, in particular Annie and Lisa; and Mayo Regional Hospital, in particular Dr. David McDermott.
Very simply, a sweeter, kinder person has not ever lived on this planet --- farewell our sweet lady.
A graveside service will be held in the spring at the Meeting House Hill Cemetery in Brattleboro, VT. Arrangements by Crosby & Neal, Guilford. For an online guest register, go to www.CrosbyNeal.com.
