Obituary for Rosalie D. Smith

Rosalie D. Smith, age 82, of Tomahawk, WI, passed away on Friday, January 31, 2020, at Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield, WI. Rose was born December 15, 1937, in Tomahawk to the late Emil and Emma (Webie) Steinbach. She was married to Clarence D. Smith, Sr., on June 11, 1955; he passed away in 2011.

Rose was a loving homemaker who took great pride in raising her big family. She loved spending the weekends in the woods helping her husband and children cutting wood and peeling popple. Rose was a talented cook and baker who was known for her homemade bread throughout the neighborhood and ensuring no one ever left her house hungry. Rose enjoyed flowers, plants, and lilac trees. She loved listening to polka music and classic country, and loved visits to the casino. In her younger years, she enjoyed dancing with her husband. Most of all, she cherished time spent with her family. Rose was a faithful member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.

Survivors include:

4 Sons, Dennis (Kathie) Smith, Clarence Smith, Jr., Earl (Gail) Smith, and Jim (Julie) Smith, all of Tomahawk;

3 Daughters, Cindy (Leo) Crowell, Kathy (Paul) Kurth, and Roseanne Barr, of Tomahawk; and

1 Sister, Maryann (Marsh) Stribe, of Waukegan, IL.

Rose is further survived by 20 Grandchildren and 34 Great-Grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her Parents, Emil and Emma; her Husband, Clarence; 1 Son, Randy; 4 Brothers, Jerry, Rudy, Bud, and Elmer; 4 Sisters, Dorothy, Eva, Irene, and Audrey; 1 Grandson, Joel Jones; 1 Granddaughter, Riley Smith; and her Son-in-Law, Ronnie Barr.

Funeral Services for Rosalie Smith will be held on Friday, February 7, 2020, at 11:00 AM, at Generations Funeral Home. The family will receive friends for Visitation on Thursday, February 6, 2020, from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM, and again on Friday from 10:00 AM until the time of Services at 11:00 AM. Rev. Larry Mathein will officiate. Burial will take place at Greenwood Cemetery in the spring.
