Vicky Rosenberg, 62, passed away unexpectedly Friday, Nov. 11, 2016, on Bow Lake in Strafford, N.H.,, a place she loved. A memorial service celebrating Vicky’s life will take place Saturday, Dec. 3, at 11 a.m., in the Pierce Webster State Room at the Courtyard by Marriott, Grappone Conference Center, 70 Constitution Avenue, Concord NH 03301. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Womenade of Concord, PO Box 685, Concord NH 03302 and Bear Paw Regional Greenways, PO Box 19, Deerfield, NH 03037.

She was born in Calmar, graduated from South Winneshiek High School in 1972 and earned her RN from Northeast Iowa Community College. Her early work as a nurse, blended with her sense of adventure, led her from Iowa to Texas and, ultimately, New Hampshire, working along the way at University of Iowa Hospital, Baylor University Medical Center and Concord Hospital. New Hampshire became her home because it is where she met the love of her life, Dr. Stephen Rosenberg and where they, together, raised their family. Still, Iowa was never far from her heart and she dutifully kept up with local news as a long time subscriber to the Calmer Courier, her hometown newspaper. Vicky’s zeal for life and deep well of energy fueled her many passions and hobbies. She pursued work as a fitness trainer, sharing her love for health, nutrition and exercise with her colleagues and clients, many of whom became dear friends. She had a green thumb and took pride in the many window boxes that decorated her home filled with glorious flowers and plants. She was an accomplished knitter and poured love into each handmade item that she generously shared with family and friends. She loved to bake and showered her sons and their friends with warm cookies, bread and treats throughout their childhood. She was an avid outdoors person, loved to hike and kayak and shared her love of the outdoors with her husband, sons and grandchildren. She cared for others and trained her dog, Gus, to be a therapy dog, sharing him with nursing homes and the Northwood Library.

Most of all, Vicky was a devoted and beloved wife, mother and grandmother.

She leaves behind her husband, Dr. Stephen Rosenberg; their four sons, Jimmy, Matt, Dan and Doug Rosenberg; two daughters in law, Shannon and Leanne Rosenberg; two grandchildren, Alice and Benji Rosenberg; her brothers, Tim and Galen Staley, and her sister, Deb Buchheit; as well as several nieces and nephews and their children with whom she kept in close touch despite the miles that separated them. Vicky had a kind soul, a heart of gold, didn’t have a mean bone in her body and was a friend to all that knew her. She will be sorely missed and forever remembered.
