She learned how to play the piano and paint. She has paintings all over her house that she painted.
Rosa was an expert seamstress who would make all her kids clothes, and she loved to crochet.
Rosa loved to garden and always had beautiful flowers and yard.
She always loved to travel and since she was from Austria she always wanted to go to the mountains. Rosa and Arvel and the kids spent many vacations in Colorado.
On a funny note she was terrified of horses and cows.
When we were kids and vacationing in Colorado, we were on a hay ride and she was relieved to see that is was being pulled by a tractor. As we were sitting in the wagon waiting to leave, a cowboy on a horse came up behind her, a loud scream was heard and she ran back to the hotel with a speed of an Olympic runner.
