Rosine was a hard worker. Throughout her lifetime, she worked as a cook for her dad and his crew in the timber. She was employed by the box factory and Gurney’s Seed & Nursery. She also prepared meals at Yankton and Lincoln High Schools. Rosine later retired as a homemaker. On July 19, 1951, Rosine married Benedict J. Horacek. Rosine was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Yankton Moose Club, and VFW Auxiliary. Some of Rosine’s favorite pass times included playing bingo and cards. She loved winning all the money! Rosine enjoyed going on weekend outings with her 4 daughters to casinos. Her greatest joy was being with her children and grandchildren and she would do anything for them. She had a great sense of humor and you never left home without getting at least a couple of hugs. Left to cherish her memory are Rosine’s children: Darrell (Valerie) Horacek, Deborah (Ron) Jacobsen, Cynthia Ekeren, Jennifer (Dan) Johnson, Pamela Hoekstra, and Jeffrey (Charice) Horacek; fourteen grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and her sister, Mary Jane Gullikson.
