  1. Mrs Rosen was a special lady / teacher she had a heart for her students & had a special caring nature towards them . I’ll will always remember, She gave me a ribbon saying I was her daily “Sunshine” I wished I would have been apart of her life as an adult!

    The ripples of her caring spirit will flow forever!

  2. Mrs. Rosen was the teacher every student needed. She pushed you to do the hard work, wouldn’t take excuses and celebrated when you finally caught on. She was the first teacher to tell me I was smart. She was tough but gentle. You will be greatly missed! Thank you for making us do the hard work and not the “Mickey Mouse” work.

  3. I was lucky enough to meet Pat many years ago through the hockey community and we maintained that friendship for over 20+ years. Twice a year on my visits from Winnipeg we would go for lunch and shopping. We were always trying out new or different restaurants and checking out the latest deals in clothing, jewelry and home goods. Her family was the important thing to her and she was so proud of of them. It was always fun to share stories of kids and grandkids. I am so glad we got to visit a couple of times when I was in Amarillo in May. I will miss you my friend.

  4. Patsy was a class lady and outstanding dedicated teacher. Our family was proud to know her. She also had a great sense of humor and we always enjoyed our visits and hearing how she did on her latest Las Vegas trip. Our prayers and blessings to all her family….she will be missed. Wreck Em Patsy!

    Lots of Love,
    Donna and Mike Bruegel
