Rosalie Maryanne Seright


Rosalie Maryanne Seright, resident of Post Falls, Idaho, passed away January 4th, 2014.

Rosalie was born on July 11, 1930 to Jack and Erma Drew in Park City, Montana and grew up in northern Wyoming on an irrigation farm. During the depression years Rosalie attended country schools through the eighth grade. She graduated from high school in Sheridan, Wyoming in 1948 and attended college at Montana State University in Bozeman. 

She met her husband, Orval Seright, from Ft. Benton, Montana; they were married September 18, 1949. Rosalie and Orval had two sons, Sandy and Randy.

In the early marriage years, Rosalie was busy caring for her family and trying hard to balance the budget on a teacher’s poor wages. After 17 years of living in Stanford, Montana, Orval and Rosalie moved to Miles City, Montana where Orval worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Retiring in 2001, Orval and Rosalie moved to Billings, Montana. They enjoyed traveling in the States and overseas and attended many of Orval’s Army reunions held through-out the United States. Rosalie moved to Garden Plaza retirement home, Post Falls, Idaho in June 2010 to be near her son and grandchildren. Rosalie had many health issues but got through them with a positive attitude. She enjoyed her years at Garden Plaza and being with her many silver-haired friends.

Rosalie was active in the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church; she also sold Avon for 27 years. Rosalie supported her boys in all school activities, enjoyed playing bridge, and was active in many organizations. She loved being a homemaker, decorating her home, and growing flowers. She had a good sense of humor and a very positive attitude throughout her life.

Rosalie was preceded in death by her husband, Orval, of 58 years and is survived by son, Sandy and wife Nancy, Post Falls, Idaho; son Randy and wife Julie, Socorro N.M.; and grandchildren, Brooke of Portland, Oregon; and Brett and Annalee of Post Falls, Idaho; and her dear sister, Dolly Davey, Centennial, Colorado; also a number of nieces and nephews.

A Memorial Service will be held at 1 p.m. on March 28, 2014 at Garden Plaza (545 N. Garden Plaza Court, Post Falls, Idaho).
