Rosaline Elizabeth Lofing went to be with her Lord on Dec. 17, 2014, at the age of 82.
The youngest of 13 children, she was born to Conrad and Elizabeth Lofing in Park City on Sept. 10, 1932. When she was 10 the family moved to Columbus, where she graduated from Columbus High School in 1950. She worked at the Line Drug Store in Columbus before moving to Livingston and then on to Bozeman. There, she worked for her brother-in-law at the Baxter Hotel for several years. In the late 1970s she moved to Billing, residing there for the past 36 years.
Rosie is survived by her sister, Joan Myers of Columbus. Preceding her in death are brothers Conrad, Alex, Peter, Herman and John Lofing; sisters Marie Henry, Lydia Maier, Esther Lofing, Molly Eisenman, Donna Staab and brother Fred, who just passed away one week before.
Rosie was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church. Friends and family always enjoyed great conversations with her, especially delighting in her terrific sense of humor. When she wasn’t gardening with her sister Lydia, she had needlework projects going, sharing the finished products with the whole family.
Most of all, her interests, activities and devotion were centered around her extended family. Aunt Rosie brought constant joy to her numerous nieces and nephews, including grands and great-grands.
At her request, there will not be a memorial service. Internment will be held at a later date.
