Marie Frances Rosenau, 71, of Mosinee, Wisconsin departed her loving family on December 5, 2021.
Marie was born February 11, 1950, the daughter of Walter and Frances (Schmidt) Schilling in Wausau, WI. On January 18, 1969 Marie was united in marriage to the love of her life Dennis Rosenau Sr. at Saint Paul Catholic Church in Mosinee.
Marie lovingly volunteered at numerous Catholic organizations, holding a big place in her heart for Special Religious Education. She enjoyed dancing, sewing and crafting. Her love of baking has been passed down to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her special zucchini bars and cookies (with extra sprinkles for the kids to eat) were always a special treat. Her smile and laughter always lit up the room!
Her greatest love was family, the pivotal essence of her life. She was proud and honored to be the matriarch, sister, mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her large family. She has been a major presence in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Marie is preceded in death by her loving husband of 25 years Dennis Rosenau Sr., and brother Michael Schilling.
