Even towards the end of her life she still attempted to console/guide others at the Chateau sur le Lac while in palliative care. But ultimately, she lived her life in Faith & tried to follow God's message. <br> <br>Roz was unique, smart, intuitive, feisty & cherished by many & is already sadly missed. <br></div>
