Rosalie Whitt, 75. Passed away on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at Memorial Hospital, South Bend.

Rose was known for her southern hospitality, a very loving woman that would do anything for anyone. However, she was also known as a “firecracker” that would protect those people that were most important to her. To her family and her friends she was the most amazing woman in the world.
