Malzahn, RoseAnn age 86, (NOTE: change of service date and location below) passed away peacefully on Jan. 9, 2022, in Rogers, MN. She was born Jan. 4, 1936, youngest of eight children, to Egbert and Tjamke Vellenga. Rose was born and raised on the south side of Chicago where she met and married the love of her life, Henry Malzahn. Rose and Henry moved to Minnesota where they spent the next 68 years. Rose enjoyed bowling, bingo (winning two cars along the way), and was especially proud of her Dutch heritage as both her mother and father were born and raised in Holland; as well as some of her siblings. "Wooden Shoe" was a common phrase with Rose in the household. Rose is survived by her loving husband of 68 years, Henry; children Linda, Mark (Barb), and Alyce (Jim); grandchildren Anna (Andy), Joseph (Abby), and Andrew (Ashley); great grandchildren Max, Clara, Mollie, Milly, and Leo.
