November 19, 1919 ~ May 11, 2011

Rosalie C. Drake, 91, of Vancouver, WA, passed away on May 11, 2011. She was born in Binghamton, NY on Nov. 19, 1919 to James P. and Mary C. Reagan.
Rosalie cherished the idea that taking care of her children, their children (grandkids) and their children (great-grandkids) was the highlight of her life.
Rosalie is known for her kindness, generosity and her genuine care for people. It would take Rosalie only a few minutes to strike up a conversation with a stranger and become lifelong friends. Within a very short period of time, Rosalie would have such a positive influence that people remembered her as being the caregiver with her kindness, consideration, thoughtfulness and her cheer.
A very special thanks goes to all of Rosalie's four children who loved her so much that they always participated in her everyday life. They all took care of her and loved her.
Rosalie is survived by her children, Edward Drake, Donna Drake, Rickey Drake and Sharon Nelson; and eight grandchildren, Michael, Aries, Tiffany, Brad, Zach, Monique, Taryn and Nathan.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Ival A. Drake.
