Rosalie Otto, age 85 of Hamilton, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019.  Rosalie was born in Hamilton, Ohio on March 4, 1934 to Pleasant Knox and Cora Agnes Estes Knox. Rose was a dedicated mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She took much pride in her upbringing, her family and close family ties. She enjoyed traveling with her beloved husband, Morris and her extended family. Rose especially enjoyed spending time with family and friends at Norris Lake in TN. She became a Beautician at the age of forty and enjoyed working with her sister for many years. Rose loved gardening, canning, baking and was especially known for her famous sugar cookies. But most of all Rose was so proud of her grandkids and great grandchildren and cherished every moment she spent with them.    

Rosalie is survived by her son, Gary (Elizabeth) Otto; grandchildren and great grandchildren, Kyle (Eleia) Otto; Chris (Elizabeth) Otto and their children James, Jonathan, Claire; Amy (Nick) Salcedo and their children Bella, Emily, Olivia; Matt Otto and his son Gabriel; and Katelyn (Eli Booth) Otto and their children Johanna and Mark. Rosalie is also survived by her loving sisters, Ida Mae (James) Miles, Betty Louise (Wilburn) Powell, Lois Jean Holland, Saundra Sue (Donald) Gross, Linda Ruth (Robert) Zurborg, and Donna Rae (Charlie) Strunk and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rosalie was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Morris Dale Otto; Son, Mark Edwin Otto; Sister, Beatrice (James) Wooten, Ethel Marie (Robert) Rahmes; brothers, Kenneth Earl Knox and Pleasant Edward Knox; brother in-law, Reuben Holland. Thank you to the VITAS staff (Dr. Brudzinski, Angie, Nikki, Becky, Ellie, Marty, Alice, Melva, George and Stephanie) for their loving and compassionate care they provided.

Our hearts and prayers are with all of the Ottos and Knox extended families. Those of us lucky enough to have been born into the family understand how truly special Rose and Morris have been to all of us. Rose, like her sisters, did her best to raise all of us collectively and loved all of us as if she were our own mother. The world got a little darker last week as she rejoices in Heaven. Rest In Peace Rosie.
