Every year, for many years, that grey haired lady would march in the Prescott Frontier Days’ Parade – 80 plus years young and proud of it. And, by the way, she also gave her time to volunteer at Habitat for Humanity and the Prescott Democratic Headquarters. Rosie was known as the “grey-haired sweet woman” seen crawling under fences to put up her favorite candidates’ signs.

Holland, Donna Jean Holland Foley; her grandchildren, Jennifer Alexandria (Jennings) Jochim, David Shane Jennings, Scott Nathan Foley, Eric Brandon Foley; four great-grandchildren, Shayla Kay Jennings, Hailey Raean Jennings, Marcus Connor Jochim, Miles Scott Jochim; and brother, Donald Jerry Wallace.
