Rose loved the outdoors, any water and the sunshine! Detroit Tigers were her favorite, watching every game possible with lots of comments and sharing of the game with her family. In her early days of work, she had farm duties that kept her busy in the summer months. You could always find a card from her in your mailbox, whether is was your birthday, or just to say I Love You….she was truly one of kind with her love for anyone and all. Polish cooking and baking was her specialty, Banana Breads were always on hand, she gave to everyone that crossed her path. Bingo was played regularly, Sunday nights at the Knight’s of Columbus in East Tawas was so special to her with her friends. Word puzzles were her part of her daily activity. She said the Rosary and prayed for hours each and everyday. Her Catholic faith was strong, raising all her children with that upbringing and value.
Rose & Frank raised 7 children, whom also survive: Debbie Whitford (Kyle Tobin), Frank Jr. (Dawn) Cibor, Susie Fairbanks, Jackie (Neil) Kapera, JoAnn Cibor, Christina (George) Snyder and Joe (Kate) Cibor; grandchildren, Nick, Kelly, Chris, Andrew, Amy, Brad, Tony, Kyle, David, Robert, Jennifer, Laura, Amanda, Garrett, Joey, Mia and Bohdan, 9 great grandchildren, with 3 more due to arrive in 2023.
Mom’s greatest accomplishment and joy was her children and all their family Love. Daily phone calls, overall care & concern for each of them and their lives. She became friends with anyone that she encountered later in life, continually feeding and checking on them. Prayer and her devout faith was what she taught and lived by.
