Rochelle was a homemaker and a mother first, and loved and cherished all of her children. She loved music, animals, gardening, cooking, dancing and being outside in the summertime. For ten years she attended dance classes, recitals and attended any event with music and dancing. She had a kind heart and tried to help anyone in need. This also included spending a big portion of her life caring and taking in any animal she could.

Rochelle had the most beautiful heart. I really enjoyed all of our conversations. She was always there for me and became one of my best friends. I never got the privilege of meeting her in person but I will never forget her.

I am so sorry to hear of Rochelle's passing. I have wonderful memories of her from my days of teaching at Peabody High School. To this day, every time I put in hoop earrings, I think of Rochelle. In HS, she always wore HUGE hoops. I finally bought a small pair, about the size of a quarter, and she smiled at me the first day I wore them and said, 'Nice earrings. You'll get there." Much love to you, her family, that will miss her most. Ann Leppke
