I was saddened to hear of Rosanne's death.  I grew up with her through Jr. High and High School.  For grad school, she went to Rosecrest and I wen to Sherman.  She came from a great family and it was fun to have her in the neighborhood and school.  Death of our classmates seems harder to deal with, when you have know the person most of your life and it certainly shows our mortality as an age group.

With regard to the death of Rosanne Burt Christensen, thanks to Vicki Harding for the sad news.  Vicki mentioned, that there was no obituary at the moment.

I talked with her LDS Bishop in Queen Creek, Arizona.  He stated: "I am sure they are working on her Obituary.  I have not received any information about it, but as soon as I can find out, I would be more than happy to share that with you.  In the meantime, her funeral services will be this Friday, November 12 2021 Arizona time.  It will be broadcast for family and friends that are interested in watching.

Over the years, she worked as a hairstylist, florist, at ASU Hayden library, and in the public schools as a Title One reading specialist, all while being a full-time Mom, Wife and Grandma. Rosanne loved to paint.  She sketched and painted her whole life.  She studied the techniques of the master painters, and created beautiful masterpieces of her own.
