Doing 1st person characters is a hobby she has taken to schools and clubs. She volunteers at Ohio Historical Society, in Ohio Village and the Thurber House. In Greenlawn Cemetery, she reenacts an early Columbus pioneer on special occasions. Any thing history oriented is right up Rosie’s alley. She enjoys doing the research as well as presenting the programs.

The Underground Railroad has been a favorite subject for Rosie. She is even a member of an Underground Railroad study group.

In addition to history, Rosie enjoys gardening, biking, sewing, reading and traveling. She and her sister are often on van tours around the state and beyond.
