On December 22, 1991, Rosetta was united in marriage to Robert Lee Johnson. They shared over 20 years of marriage together and four children: Angela, Jacob, Ryan and Callie.
Rosetta made a very important decision in her life and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior. She was baptized at Eureka Baptist Church of Richland and attended every chance she could.
Rosetta was a hardworking woman. She worked for the past 10 years as the school nurse for the Laquey School District. She loved children and enjoyed getting to take care of them at the school.

She was also very active in the Laquey PTO and was a troop leader for Girl Scout Troop #10967. Most importantly, she cherished those times spent with her family and friends.
