Rosalba “Rosie” Heinrich, age 75, died in Christ on February 15, 2022 at Froedtert Kenosha Hospital.
Born on October 18, 1946 in Bogota, Colombia she was the daughter of the late Miguel and Alba Leticia Delgado. Rosie received her education locally in Colombia and worked as an Executive Secretary prior to meeting her husband and coming to America.
On December 12, 1975 in Bogota, Colombia she married Gunther Heinrich.
Rosie taught Spanish and tutored for a number of years before transitioning into her role as a full-time homemaker. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and going on yearly road trips to different portions of the country. She loved to cook and was happiest when preparing authentic Colombian dishes.
She was particularly known for her compassion towards her friends. If ever they were ill or in the hospital, she would always hand write greeting cards as well as make homemade flower arrangements and deliver them in person to help cheer them up.
Surviving Rosie is her husband of 46 years, Gunther; her four sons: Andreas, Erik (Jillian), Mark, and Troy Heinrich and her granddaughter, Sophia. Rosie is further survived by many close friends who she loved dearly.
In addition to her parents, Rosie was preceded in death by her brother and sister.
