Rosalie M. Harrison lost her battle to cancer at age 70 on March 7 after a long and brave fight at her grandchildren Ben and Rebecca’s home in Vail.

Rosalie was born on the plains of Douglas, Wyo., on Feb. 21, 1940, to Theodore and May Arlene Waters. Her pioneer spirit is what guided her into being the greatest mother, grandmother and great-grandmother that any family could ever have asked for.

She was a life-long member of the Salvation Army.

She is survived by three brothers, Ken and Wesley Waters of Casper, Wyo., and Donald Harrison of Overton, Nev. She is also survived by her sons and daughters, Steven G. (Shirley), of Stagecoach, Nev., Howard S. (Jennifer), of Belfair, Wash., and Daniel R. (Paula), of Blanca; grandchildren Rebecca L. and Benjamin Jarrell, of Vail, and Brent and Trevor, of Belfair, Wash.; and great-granddaughter Sarah M. Jarrell, of Vail.

Funeral services will be held at Moapa Valley Mortuary in Logandale, Nev., at 2 p.m., Saturday. A visitation is scheduled for one hour prior to services at the mortuary. Friends and family are invited to sign the online guest book at
