Rosetta on the left at age 17
A day at the beach in the early 1900s - Rosetta on top
Rosetta was born on November 18, 1909 in Chicago, Illinois. In 2006 she passed away at the ripe old age of nearly 97 years old, but her stories and humor live on in her memoir "Can We Come in and Laugh, Too?"

Rosetta in 1929
To celebrate her birthday, from Thursday, NOVEMBER 19 through NOVEMBER 23 you can DOWNLOAD A FREE KINDLE COPY of her book and enjoy her memories of growing up as the youngest of ten children in a zany Latvian immigrant family in the early 1900s. What they didn't have in money, they made up for in humor. She recalls how neighbors would knock at their door and ask, "Can we come in and laugh, too?"


Rosetta takes you all the way up to 1989 when she wrote this memoir at the age of 80. The manuscript was found and published in 2012. She always used humor to get through even the toughest curves that life threw her, like the day her husband dropped dead at the young age of 49 and left her with two children and little money. Always a positive person, this book is not only funny but inspirational. The poignant parts could almost be called a lesson on how to combat disaster with humor.

Available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions. A wonderful holiday gift for those who love nostalgia and
 uplifting stories.
