Remembering Clare Ulrich

Today we say goodbye to a mainstay of the Rosedale Family for many years. Clare Ulrich was without a doubt one of the hardest working, most joyful and intelligent members of our staff and will be so greatly missed. Our hearts go out to her family, friends and communities that she has left her mark on in her time with us. Upon first news of Clare's passing we received an amazing amount of outreach from many of our frequent customers that so vividly remember Clare's sunny smile and welcoming demeanor. We thought we'd share some words long time friend Nancy Rossi shared with us to show just how much Clare will be missed:

Dearest Lynn and Marshall,

I am heartbroken to read just now of Clare Ulrich's death. What a cruel and tragic loss of such a brilliant and kind young woman.

My heart aches for her family and for all of you at the farm who knew and loved her so. Her sunny smile and welcoming greeting to her weekly members--always amazingly remembering our names--was such a treat each week.

You have had many outstanding young people work with you over the summer, who must become honorary second children to you, but Clare is unforgettable. What lightness of being, goodness, and grace that girl possessed.

It is late at night after a long day of writing student comments, and I was only now opening up the paper. I just could not go to sleep without sending you both my love and sympathy. Please give my love to your dear Kate too. She must be so very upset by this sad news.

Love you guys so much.

– Nancy Rossi
