Obituary for Rosie Grace Foreman

Rosie Grace Foreman, 92, of Winifred, passed away Thursday, August 15, 2019 at the Central Montana Medical Center. 

Rosie was born August 31, 1926 in Winifred, Montana to Kuzma and Johanna (Pipinich) Simac. She attended the country schools east of Winifred through the grades and attended Winifred High School where she graduated in 1944.  

Rosie married Harold Smith and from this union their daughter, Shirley Ann was born. Harold passed away in 1950. Rosie was united in marriage to Bill Foreman, December 31, 1953 at St. Victor’s Church in Hilger, MT. From this union, their daughters, Rita and Chris were born. Together, they ranched and farmed northwest of Winifred until the fall of 1973. They built a house in Winifred where Bill started “Grandpa’s Trucking.”  

In addition to all she did to care for her family, home, and making memories spending time with all her grandchildren, Rosie loved to bake cookies and cakes (especially her angel food cake), loved watching the Winifred Raider/Outlaws and was a devoted fan of the high school volleyball team. She was active in the Women’s Club, Garden Club, Holy Family Altar Society, and was a Eucharistic Minister and Lay Presider at Holy Family Parish. 

Rosie was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Helen Vavrovsky, Stephanie Simac, Anne Lund, Mary Elliott, Margaret Landru, Katy Hruska; and brothers, Joe Simac and Jerry Simac.
