Rosolack, Frank Frederick (27 Aug. 1853 - 28 May 1934)

Frank Frederick Rosolack was born near Milwaukee, August 27th, 1853. There he grew to manhood, and was married to Miss Othelia Gesse. From Milwaukee the family moved to Plainview, Minn., where they resided for a number of years and then moved to Watertown, S. D. After fourteen years he returned with his family to Wisconsin, settling near La Crosse. In 1910, he came with his family to this community, settling on a farm in Garden Valley, where they resided for a few years, and then moved into the village.

Mr. Rosolack’s first wife passed away in 1894. In 1899, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Emelia Roller, who died in 1914. Since 1915, he has lived in retirement with his children. Mr. Rosolack passed to his Eternal Home in the early evening hours on Monday, May 28, 1934, at the home of his son Adolph, after but a short illness. He attainted the age of 80 years, 9 months and 1 day.

He is survived by two sons, Adolph C. and William M., both of Humbird, and two daughters, Mrs. Geo. Wolfe, of La Crosse, and Mrs. Mollie Jack, of Chicago. Three children preceded him in death, Emil, Fred and John. Two brothers, Julius, of Muskegon, Mich., and August, of Eau Claire, and one sister, Mrs. Ernestine Schultz, of Plainview, Minn., also survives him. His death is also mourned by his two step-children, Mrs. Emil Rosolack, of Eau Claire, and Adolph Roller, of Muskegon, Mich., eleven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
