In Loving Memory of our Friend ROSIE FAUST

On Tuesday, November 11th our dear friend Rosie left us to tend her beautiful garden and to create more beautiful projects in our Father's kingdom above. We love you Rosie and will miss you dearly!

You have been such an important part of Keepsakes for longer than most. I remember many nights when the store was still in Livingston and you would drive through terrible snow storms just to get to a class. I always knew if I could count on one person to be there, it would be Rosie. When retreats or special events were scheduled I would automatically put Rosie at the top of the list.

It was always a joy to see you come through the door, you were always so happy and so friendly with everyone you came in contact with. You made everyone feel like they had known you for years. We will not soon forget you!!!

Until we meet again my friend!!


SERVICES are tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, November 19th @ 11:00 a.m. at the Dahl Funeral Home off Highland Blvd. If plans change, we will post here.

Please feel free to post a memory you have of Rosie. We would love to read about it.

It was Rosie who made me feel so comfortable and welcome in my first class at Keepsakes. I had only just moved here and didn't know a sole. Rosie greeted me with a BIG smile and invited me to sit next to her. She saw how I was struggling (newbie to scrapping) and encouraged me and even let me borrow all her supplies. She was a blessing to know and I truly will miss her.

Till we meet again in Heaven... keep smiling.

I have taken so many card classes with Rosie. She was so creative - always taking the class to the next level with a grin and a giggle. Again, she was so complimentary and patient. Our prayers are with all the family.

Miss you Rosie! It was always a treat to have Rosie in a class. She was cheerful, encouraging to students and teachers alike, talented to no end, and full of so many little hints about how to do paper crafts. And her enthusiasm for paper crafts was equaled by her passion for gardening, the environment and cooking. We talked recipes and yummies on the phone just last week. I will always remember her when we have pumpkin bread, a recipe she requested within the last month.

Blessings to Rosie's "family" at Keepsakes By Design and to her real family. I knew Rosie from a few classes that I have taken as I passed through Bozeman. She was warm, welcoming, always shared her tools, and was patient to work with me when I fell behind. May she rest in God's arms now.

It was the mid 90's when Rosie took me to this little stampstore in Livingston--next to the train depot.We discovered we both had this rubberstamp fettish and Sheila's store was the answer. We enjoyed sharing ideas through the years, not just stamping but a variety of paper crafts.Well I guess my neighbor-my friend-is crafting away in heaven now.And YES Rosie-you'll always have more stamps than me! We'll miss your smile and friendly greetings here in this neighborhood.
