Obituary for Rosalee E. Halik (Forsyth)

Rosalee E. Halik, 78, passed away at home, in Pittsfield, due to complications with Parkinson's Disease, which she fought for nearly six years.

She was born 12/17/1939, the daughter of the late Evelyn (Bernard) Forsyth and Merrill Forsyth in Hubbard, Oregon, and attended grade school in St Paul, OR and high school in Woodburn, OR. Rosalee then finished her education at Oregon State University. The family moved to California where she worked at the financial department of Lockheed Corp. in Sunnyvale, CA.

Rosalee met (in 1960), Frank J Halik, who was on a field service assignment at Lockheed for GE-Ordnance. After a whirlwind romance,they were married on 4/29/1961 in Los Altos, CA and moved to Pittsfield, MA in 1964.

Rosalee was the mother of their 2 children and when they were about teen-age, she returned to the financial world by working at Shearson Brokerage Firm's Pittsfield office and becoming the Office Manager until retiring after 13 years in 1993.

Rosalee became an avid bowler, and golfer at Berkshire Hills Country Club, until the ravages of her disease took over.

She and Frank traveled the world extensively after her retirement, mostly on their 43 ocean and river cruises and several other trips to Europe and the USA.

Besides her husband, she is survived by her daughter Suzanne (and companion Myron Ritrosky Jr), plus granddaughters Kathryn (Joel), Molly, and Jayme. Son Robert of Norfolk, VA, (and companion Christine Cherry), and grandsons Mark (Lindsay), Garret, Tyler, and Ryan. Frank's brother John (Sandra). In addition she leaves several nieces and nephews and cousins, and a sister in law Joyce Cutting, scattered around the country.

Rosalee was predeceased by her younger siblings; Donald and Diane Forsyth.

Special thanks go to Rosalee's care-folks: hospice nurse Nadine Abderhalden, and private aides Christine DiCenzo, and Vicki Wichmann for their loving support, and to longtime friends Elaine Lee and Judy Weldon for their frequent visits.

SERVICES: Calling hours for Rosalee will be Wednesday, May 16 from 9-11am at the Flynn and Dagnoli Funeral Home, 5 Elm Street, Pittsfield. Followed at 11am by a Celebration of Life officiated by Rev. Rich Hayes, Hospice Spiritual Care.

Burial at St Joseph's Cemetery will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to Hospice Care in the Berkshires, in care of the funeral home. To add to the Book of Memories, pleaae visit
