Rosie Mary (Hajda) Naizer, 97, went to be with her Lord Sept. 2, 2020. She was born Dec. 7, 1922, to Frank and Annie (Nemec) Hajda in Granger.
She married Joe Naizer Jan. 7, 1946.
Rosie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister. She was a great cook and her family enjoyed her kolaches, particularly her cinnamon rolls, and her chicken and dumplings.
She enjoyed crocheting, quilting, playing dominoes, bingo and scrabble and listening to polka music. Because of her deep faith, she also spent much time praying the rosary and watching EWTN. She spent most of her life as a homemaker and did babysitting in her home for 13 years. Each of the children she babysat were very special to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Naizer; parents, Frank and Annie Hajda; grandson, Daniel Norman; son-in-law, Johnnie Kortis; brothers, Tim Hajda, Frankie Hajda and Rudy Hajda; and sister Ann Mikulencak.
