Rosemary Elaine Bowers, was called home to heaven November 23rd, 2023 in Gilbert, Arizona. “Grandma Rosie” known to most lived a beautiful life of giving, loving, and making others feel so special, she always had a big smile, welcoming nature and loved her 2 boys and would let everyone know about them. Of course, Peanut, her dog was her best friend and she loved hm so much. She loved the outdoors, spending time up north at the cabin just hanging out, riding RZR’s, going to Mexico, simply enjoying the sun and beach, all while laughing and enjoying her time with family and friends. She had a love of music especially Michael Jackson Thriller, whether it was listening to Oldie’s but Goodie’s with Wolf Man Jack on Saturday Nights or Country to her all-time favorites and she loved her Christmas music. She was always so positive and looked for the best in others. She loved to go on walks, road trips, playing soccer, driving around to look at Christmas lights and volunteering. The world is a better place because of her, and she will truly be missed. We know she is happy, healthy, and free now.

She is survived by her boys, Kenny and Kraig Klaus, her daughter in-laws; Nikki and Kami, her grandkids; Tyler, Kayla, Kyle, Bree & Ryan and great grandkids; Kinsley, Easton, Jaxson, Liam, Kaydance, Troy and Hunter

Her celebration of Life will be held December 10th, 2023, from 1pm-5pm at 2117 E Pickett Ct Gilbert, Az. 85298.

    Rosie, Aunt Rosie to our kids, was fun to be with. Her positive outlook on life always shined through. When our friends were visiting Mesa several years ago, we suggested that they have dinner at The Hub. When they returned to St Louis, they had so many stories to tell us about Kenny, Kraig and their families. It turns out that their “new best friend” was Rosie. She was the hostess! Does anyone wonder where Kenny and Kraig got their gift of gab?
    Rosie lives on through wonderful memories and we see her influence in the terrific boys that she raised. She was a kind and loving mother that would do anything for her boys. It was fitting that as time passed, Kenny, Kraig and their families would do anything for her.
    We love you guys, Uncle Dave & Aunt Barb. (See you soon.)
