Herzog, who predeceased her in 1987.  In addition to helping Floyd on the farm, she was a 1953 polio survivor and raised their two sons.  She enjoyed gardening, cooking, and playing cards with her grandchildren and friends.  Our beloved Oma had an easy smile and infectious laugh that will be missed.  Rosella was a member of St. Lorenz Lutheran Church and its Ladies Aid Society, along with the Lutheran Ladies Auxiliary.
