Rosalie (Feltes) Christensen,
Age 77, of Elburn, IL, passed away peacefully,
Saturday afternoon, June 19, 2004 at the Aurora
Rehab-Living Center.

She was born July 6, 1926 in Aurora, IL, the
daughter of Leonard M. and Loretta (Brummel)
Feltes. Rosalie grew up in Aurora where she
attended Madonna High School.

On January 21, 1961, she was united in marriage
to Wendell T. Christensen at the Annunciation
Church, Aurora. They settled in the tenant house
on the Hughes Farm near Elburn where they lived
and farmed for over twenty-five years. Rosalie
also worked at Hawley Products in St. Charles for
over twenty-two years and later, at Cetron, Inc.,
Geneva and National Electronics in LaFox for a
time. In 2001, Rosalie and Wendell retired and
moved to Elburn where Wendell passed away the
following year.

In that year, and for each year following,
Rosalie faced a seemingly continuous barrage of
setbacks and health issues. Through it all, her
strong faith, close family and friends and an
unsinkable sense of humor, kept her going. Family
and friends will long remember how she loved to
play cards and to garden. The many hours she
spent, crocheting things for her friends and loved
ones will long remain a reminder of the way her
life was woven together with theirs.

She is survived by her two sisters:
Betty (Russ) Kinney of Bartlett, IL and
Charlene (Charles) Nelson of North Aurora;
four brothers:
Raymond (Marge) Feltes of North Aurora,
Charles (Marion) Feltes of Aurora,
Wilbert (Janice) Feltes of North Aurora,
Norbert (Judy) Feltes, all of Aurora;
One sister-in-law: Jeannette Feltes of Aurora,
Her mother-in-law, Loretta Christensen and
One cousin, Clarence (Theresa) Reines of Aurora,

Thirty-nine nieces and nephews, many great nieces
and nephews and several great, great nieces and

She was preceded in death by her husband,
Her parents and one brother, Robert Feltes, one
nephew Thomas Nelson and two nieces Mary Allen and
Susan Nelson.
Memorials in her memory may be made to St. Gall
Church, Elburn, IL
and mailed in care of P.O. Box 66, Elburn, IL
