Rosemary Tasker, 73, Turtle Lake, Wis., died Thursday, Dec. 3, 2009, at Golden Age Manor, Amery.
She was born Feb. 7, 1936, at Waterloo, Iowa, to David and Myrtle (DeVoe) Moschkau. Rosie was born months premature during the heart of the depression era and given little chance to survive. Her will to live fostered the optimism that was discernable her whole life.
Rosie's gift was with children and teaching the word of God to the little ones. She taught Sunday school at Zion Lutheran Church for over 40 years, spanning generations of families. She taught until her loss of vision forced her to retire.
Rosie was selfless and always put others before herself. She loved to cook for the workers on the family farm and shared her baking and canning with friends and neighbors. Rosie also worked with developmentally disabled children in her younger years and was chaplain of the Turtle Lake American Legion Women's Auxiliary. She was a blessing to everyone who knew her.
She married Clifford Tasker at Turtle Lake on June 18, 1954. He preceded her in death on March 27, 1999.
Surviving are daughters, Fran (Shayne) Duncanson of Turtle Lake and Lois (Glen) Nelson of Milltown; a son, Michael (Judy) of Balsam Lake; grandchildren, Joseph Tasker and Greta Nelson; a special niece, Bobbi Moschkau of St. Paul, Minn.; a brother, George (Kella) Moschkau of Iowa; and a sister, Jane Livock of Lake Norton, S.D.
In addition to her husband, Rosie was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Lucille Anderson and Jean Moschkau; and a brother, Roger Moschkau.
