Rosalba Mariacher

Rosalba (Rosie) Mariacher, a loving wife, mother, and friend passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 25, 2022, residing at Rose Senior Living in Carmel, Indiana with her husband Bob at her side. 

Rosie was born on July 13, 1936, in Ibague, Colombia, S.A. She was the 13th child of the late Alfredo and Matilda (Gutierrez) Arbelaez. Rosie came to the United States in 1957 knowing very little English to help her sister who had given birth to her first child. Her sister was living in Denver, Colorado at that time. Rosie met Bob in 1961 while he was attending the University of Denver. The two of them were married on December 29, 1962 in Denver. 

Rosie became a naval wife when Bob was commissioned a U.S. Navy Officer in March of 1963. They spent 6 months in Athens, Georgia while Bob attended Supply Corps School. From Athens they relocated to San Diego, California where their first two daughters were born, compliments of the Navy. Their son was born in La Habra, California and their third daughter was born in Lansing, Michigan. The family of 6 arrived in Carmel, Indiana in 1978 where they settled down and raised their children. Besides helping raise her 4 children, Rosie worked 24 years at Resort Condominiums International (RCI) using her bilingual skills in various customer service and support assignments. 

Rosie's pride and joy for living was being with her family. She deeply loved her husband, her 4 children and their spouses, her 12 grandchildren, and her 9 great-grandchildren. Rosie was a devout Catholic and active in parish life. She also made time for volunteering at St. Vincent's Women Hospital in the Neonatal unit, the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Vincent de Paul, and the Women's Care Center. Rosie will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, tireless work ethic, flair for fashion, special cooking recipes, salsa dancing, and warm hugs and kisses. She leaves a legacy of love, warmth, and kindness to all who knew her whether family, friends, acquaintances, or strangers. 

Rosie is survived by her husband, Robert (Bob) Mariacher; her four children, Patricia (Josh) Coughlin, Cynthia (John Richard) Schooler, Gregory (Amy) Mariacher, and Lori (Miguel) Antolinez; 12 grandchildren; and 9 great-grandchildren at the time of her passing. 

Visitation will be from 9:30 am to 10:30 am before the Celebration of Life service at 10:30 am, on Thursday, October 13, 2022 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 10655 Haverstick Road, in Carmel. Rosie's cremains will be interred in the Madonna Mausoleum within the Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery in Wheatridge, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.
