Remembering Rosalie McCormick

At our 2007 “Picnic in the Park”

Rosalie McCormick

If you were a member of the Center when it was located on NE Shaver, you’ll remember that Rosalie was our hospitality director. Nearly every week she would come into the Center early on Sunday and bake fresh goodies for us on-site. She always made sandwiches for our annual meetings and attended church every Sunday until her health no longer permitted it.

She was also an enthusiastic artist. She created the “Symbols of World Religions” that we have hanging in our sanctuary as well as a piece entitled “The Universe” in the upstairs bathroom. Many of us have a Rosalie McCormick “Still Life” oil painting in our homes. She was generous with her time and her many talents.

“The Universe” by Rosalie McCormick

She was one of the founding members of the Women of Wisdom book club and helped to ensure that members of the Lake Oswego center as well as our own were free to participate. Rosalie made her transition at the end of December, 2018 and her memorial was held on January 19, 2019.
