Rose was the youngest of eight children {six daughters & two sons} born to Frank & Anna (Phillips) Wotzka.

On 15 September 1914, Peter married Rose Wotzka at Saints Peter & Paul Catholic Church in the village of Lake George, MN; he was age 23, she was 22.

A homemaker & mother of thirteen, her kitchen was the social gathering place of the home in Melrose (purchased in 1936 when she received a portion of her father's estate.) Within minutes after arriving at her home , she would offer visitors something to eat -- fried potatoes and pork sausage was everyone's favorite. After eating, we would sit around, talking and joking, and the adults maybe drinking a beer or two. Rose would never have a beer by herself, but she was always willing to share one with someone else.

Extremely kind of heart, Rose would jump in to "defend" any of her children as soon as one started to tease another... it became a game the children loved to play.
