Rosetta “Rosie” Marie Egbert passed away at peace with family by her side on Oct. 31, 2019, in Portland, Oregon, at the age of 86.

She was a lifelong resident of Seaside and Gearhart, Oregon, and had moved to the Portland area a few years ago to be near her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild.

Rosie was born April 3, 1933, in Oregon City, Oregon, to Diane and Bob Clark. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She was always willing and eager to help anyone in need; she was a very giving person.

Rosie loved raising her children, including sports activities while they were young, working with Avon, the Seaside Rebekah’s Lodge and her pets. She had a love for all animals. She also loved being busy, was an avid gardener and had an energetic spirit. She worked as an office manager and bookkeeper for most of her career.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Michael Egbert.

Rosie is survived by her five children, Dianna and Charles Cranston of Portland, Oregon, Mary Egbert of Beaverton, Oregon, Michael and Brandi Egbert of Palo Alto, California, Kathie Sandbothe of Portland, Oregon, and Tony and Dani Egbert of Gearhart, Oregon; seven grandchildren, Carly and Matt Field of Portland, Oregon, Zach Cranston of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Kristin McLaughlin of Brooklyn, New York, Anthony, Kristin, and great-grandson, Jacob, Sandbothe of Portland, Oregon, Alix Sandbothe of Omaha, Nebraska, Gabryell Hanson of Palo Alto, California, and Max Egbert of Palo Alto, California; her sister, Barbara Engelman of Mesa, Arizona; and her brother, Tom Stone of Salem, Oregon.

Rosie was our beautiful neighbor. We enjoyed seeing her take her daily walks. Sometimes we would even be lucky enough to join her. She will always be in our hearts! We love you very much!

Rosie was one of the first people I met when I moved to Seaside in 2005. I smile when I remember how much she loved to garden and how good she was at it! She showed me how to grow garlic and lavender for the first time. She was really fun to be around and was inspiring to observe her full of energy plus she was full of plans of things to accomplish. She didn't have time to sit around unless it was to watch a favorite tv show occasionally. I think she was the definition of a "force of nature!" She was a shining example of vitality after retirement and I will always remember her with a smile. Love you Rosie.

I have so many wonderful memories of Rosie, like when her and Barbara welcomed me into their family when I married their brother. Both of them gave our children so much love, when we would go visit Mike and Rosie in Seaside and they would always welcome us in their home for the weekend. Rosie was a amazing woman, so selfless and giving always full of love and smiles. I had the pleasure of seeing her when she was celebrating her 85th birthday that weekend, and she got to meet her great nieces. And as usual she and he sister Barbara made sure their young great nieces had gifts. Always so thoughtful, and even though I was no longer by marriage part of the family, She made sure I always was part of the family, I will never forget her . Love you Rosie ❤️
