Rosalie J. O’Brien Palulis
Rosalie J. O’Brien Palulis, age 74 peacefully went to be with our Lord on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020 at Advent Hospital in Ocala, Florida. She was born June 19, 1946 in Imperial, Nebraska to Philip and Sara O’Brien. She married Victor Palulis in Sept. 1968 and had three children, Roseanne, Kathleen and Victor Brian. Rosalie worked for Walt Disney World for 25 years before she retired and moved to Colorado. She truly lived life to the fullest. She loved being outdoors, gardening, fishing, traveling, thrift shopping and entertaining family and friends. Rosalie was not only the life of the party, but often the reason for the party. She had a beautiful smile, a courageous generous heart and an adventurous spirit. She never met a stranger, and we have the pictures to prove it! All who knew her loved her.
She is survived by her children, Roseanne Moreland, Kathleen Tezak (Bill Ellis) and Victor Brian Palulis; her granddaughter Rosalie Moreland; brother, Phillip Obrien (Gary Dellaquila); sisters, Christine (Bill) Greely and Patricia O’Brien; extended family, Victor and Michelle Palulis, Colson and Lindsey Marsh along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends; and Tootsie, her Cairn Terrier fur baby.
Rosalie is preceded in death by her parents, Phillip and Sara O’Brien; and her sisters, Kathleen O’Brien and Marye O’Brien.
In Lieu of flowers, the family asks you to raise a toast Irish style, in Rosalie’s memory.
