Rose Marie Muller, of Bloomfield, entered into eternal life on, Monday September 5, 2022. She was the beloved wife of the late Barry Muller, and the daughter of the late Mary and Joseph Shelesky.
At her core, Rose Marie was a devoted mother and grandmother. Her days were spent being a stay-at-home mother, part time educator, and mentor to her five children. She devoted innumerable hours to her children's education, upbringing, and religious training. While her family was everything to her, she had a passion for space. To become closer to space, she learned how to fly Cessnas on the weekend, and achieved her pilot's license.
She volunteered at St. Vincent Nursing Home, where she managed the gift shop and assisted the residents. She was a lifelong member of Forest Hill Field Club where she was a friend to everyone.
Rose Marie's five children, who will miss her beyond words, are: daughter, Dawne (husband Pat); daughter, Sharon (husband Tony); son, Barry (wife Justine); son, Rick (wife Voula); and daughter, Patrice (husband Erik). She also leaves behind her sister Joann (Ed) Rogers and her sister-in-law Ann (Tom) Sprague.
