Posted Condolences:


  1. Rose will be missed by many, myself included. She was one of the hardest working women I’ve ever known and did it all with a smile. Her laugh was contagious and her heart was big. She never once passed judgement and always had open arms. I can say with full confidence that all 3 of her children have the same personality traits as Rose and it warms my heart to know her spirit will live on through them. I cherish the many memories I have with Rose out on the farm. Too many to count but they all involve animals, food & joy. I tell my own children, “When I was your age I was helping my Grandma (Lynne Leapaldt) and Great Aunt (Rose) butcher chickens! You have no idea how easy you have it!” To date, I have yet to taste a Spanish rice better than Rose’s. I know my dad (Mike Leapaldt) greeted her in heaven with a big smile and hug. Rose was a great aunt to him throughout the years and he loved her very much. We all did. Rest In Heaven Rose, I love you.

  2. What a beautiful lady! So very kind. I always loved my visits with her and her amazing Christmas cookies. RIP dear Rose😢

  3. Thoughts and prayers are with Delmer and the Leapaldt Family. Your Mom was a very special lady. I love her rhubarb dessert and I think of her whenever I make it. I cherish the times our families got together. I so miss the hunting trips. When we lose a loved one they are always with us in our memories and in our hearts. All of you have a beautiful Angel watching over you from above. Love James and Tyann Schlenker.

  4. Such a nice lady. my sympathies to the family .

  5. Rose will be missed by many. She has gone to her heavenly home.

  6. Our cousin Rose was a great lady. We grew up together but lived in different states. We always were in touch our whole lives. Delmer and Rose raised a great family and we love them as we love their parents.

  7. My condolences to your family. Rose was such a kind heart. I remember her fondly.

  8. Rose was one the the wonderful Woodworth ladies! Gosh, if they have potlucks in heaven, they have some of the best in knowing how to do them right! Loved your Mom’s smile and laugh. Hope you take time to share wonderful memories these next few days!

  9. Where do I start…as I read Larisa Leapaldt’s message, she hit it right on the spot. I must agree with her about everything. Rose was in my life for many, many years. I have so many fond memories of her, and staying over night at the farm. She was the best cook! Not once did she ever judge me. She was always kind, and I always remember her having a smile on her face. No one in Woodworth made pickles like Rose. I could literally go on, and on. I’m thankful to have had her in my life. Rose Leapaldt, there will never be anyone like you. Dance with Jesus!

  10. I was so sorry to learn of Rose’s passing….my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It’s so hard to lose a mom! When I think of Rose, her beautiful smile comes to mind….she always seemed to wear one and was such a warm person. I pray that God wraps His arms around all of you and gives you peace and comfort.

  11. Rose was a wonderful friend & lady. She will be greatly missed. Rick talked about the wonderful she made when he’d there a few times.
