Rosalee Erhardt was born November 23, 1938 near New Salem, ND to Joseph and Catherine (Hopfauf) Erhardt. She attended school through the eighth grade. On June 4, 1958 Rosalee married Kenneth J. Mosbrucker in New Salem. They moved to Mandan where they raised their 5 children.
Rosalee took great pride in everything she did. She was a homemaker and a seamstress who sewed many wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses along with many other jobs during her marriage. She was always by Kenny’s side for the maintenance and repair work they did on their rental properties and home. Rosalee had so many talents and was never afraid to tackle any task. Rosalee and Kenny loved to travel and were fortunate enough to get to all 50 states and Europe. They enjoyed wintering in Arizona and would make frequent trips to visit their daughter in Texas. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. A wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she will be deeply missed by all.
Blessed to have shared her life with Kenny for 52 years, she will join him in heaven. She is survived by her three sons, Dean (Nimfa), Mesa, AZ, Brian, Mesa, AZ, and Calvin (Lois), Mandan; daughter, Lorie (John) Makelke, Rockwall, TX; eight grandchildren, Nichole, Colton, Damian, Shane, Heidi, Jacob, Marshall, and Natasha; three great-grandchildren; sister, Gladys (Leo) Leingang; and two brothers, Marvin (Carol) Erhardt and Mark (Joey) Erhardt.
Rosalee was preceded in death by her husband, Kenny; her parents; and a son, David.
