Birthdays

Rosalie Ranker will celebrate her 90th birthday March 3. She was born Rosalie Panzer on March 3, 1928 to Frank and Rosalie (Bohl) Panzer. She was one of 10 siblings born to the family, two babies did not survive the times. The siblings she grew up with were Adeline, Viola, Gilbert (Gibb), LaVern, Frank, Mae and Edith. She was the second youngest.

When Rosalie was two-years-old, her father passed away from a heart attack, while her mom was pregnant with the youngest sister, Edith. Edith and Rosalie would ask the older siblings why they didn’t have a dad, but no one would talk about it. The two would sit behind the barn and talk about why they didn’t have a dad and why no one would talk about it. At six-years-old, Edith passed away from polio, upon which, Rosalie says, caused her to go into a shell.
