Rosella E. Mispagel was born December 24, 1922 in Beloit, Kansas.  She passed away April 19, 2013 in Denver, Colorado.  Rosella moved from Osborne to Effingham in 1929.  She attended St. Ann's Catholic School.  In 1944 Rosella married Julius Mispagel at St. Ann's Church in Effingham, her husband Julius "John" preceded her in death in 1982. Rosella was employed at Swedish Hospital for 23 years as a kitchen helper and dietitians aide, she was extremely patient and very kind to ill patients when taking their dietary orders.  She received the Employee of the Year honor while working at Swedish Hospital.  Rosella enjoyed line dancing and was an assistant dance instructor until the age of 84. She enjoyed water aerobics, crocheting and quilting, she recently worked on quilts for her great grandchildren Matt and Brittney this past year. Some of the families' fondest memories of Rosella were quilting with her and her mother, Sophie.  Rosella looked forward to going to the monthly Knights of Columbus breakfasts and seeing her friends.  She enjoyed the concerts in the park during the summer months.  Rosella was an avid Colorado Rockies fan and was always up to date on their activities and we would call her to find out their schedule and other important information regarding the team. The same would apply with the Denver Broncos.  She loved going up to see the aspen each year as she had done with her husband in years past (even asking Bernie to take some home-on the sly).  Rosella was very witty, with a playful sense of humor, and she loved being a grandmother and great grandmother.  She was always on hand to light a candle or say a prayer for any of us when we called her with a special request.  Rosella wants everyone to know "since I've been called home, I'll pray for you all in Heaven. Love to everyone."
