Rosalie M. Siler, 94, passed away on Oct. 9, 2018, at Banner Del Webb
Hospital in Sun City West, Arizona. She was born on March 21, 1924, in
Marinette, Wisconsin, to George L. Gray and Anna Helen Grupp Gray.

Rosalie attended Marinette High and University of Wisconsin. She worked
for Dr. Fast Optometry of Marinette. She attended Lambert Business
School in Phoenix, co-business owner of a motel, gas stations, reality
and Clemenceau Water Works.

Rosalie belonged to Verde Valley Baptist Church. She enjoyed politics,
sports and business. She loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and
aunt.

She also loved children, God and the scripture.

Rosalie was always by her husband’s side in love, life, business and
politics. George was appointed by Governor Goddard to the Arizona State
Oil and Gas commission in the ‘60s and as a result she would attend
various state functions with him during his 8-year service to the
Governor.

She was elegant, extremely beautiful and a fantastic cook. She could
switch from doing work (manual or book) to attending a Governor’s Ball
in the same day. For her 81st birthday she purchased herself a backhoe;
figured she was getting too old for shoveling. Mom was a hoot!

Rosalie was the one true love of George T. Siler, a great mother, fun
grandmother and an accomplished and formidable woman. A true sport of
life.

Rosalie was preceded in death by her husband, George T. Siler; and son,
William Jefferson Siler.

She is survived by sons, George T. Siler Jr. (Regina) of Cottonwood and
John Franklin Siler (Nancy) of Peoria; daughters, Anne Harlen Flores
(Alejandro) of Fredrick, Maryland, Sally Anne Cancino of Buckeye and
Candace Elizabeth Harrison (Rick) of Waddell; 16 grandchildren and 17
great-grandchildren.

Services will be held at Westcott Funeral Home in Cottonwood on
Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018. Visitation will be held at 10 a.m. The service
will start at 11 a.m., and burial will follow at Valley View Cemetery
in Clarkdale.

A reception will be held following services at the American Legion, 480
S. Calvary Way in Cottonwood at 1:30 p.m.
