Rosalie Ann Siegel September 23, 1942 - February 27, 2021

Rosalie Ann Siegel, age 78, passed away surrounded by her family in Meridian, Idaho on Saturday February 27, 2021.

She was born September 23, 1942 to George and Helen Hoff in Onawa, Iowa. Rosalie married Fred Louis Siegel in December 1966 in Boulder, Colorado.

After retiring from the Idaho State Department of Education Child Nutrition Services, Rosalie worked as an administrative assistant at multiple skilled nursing facilities in Boise and Meridian. She was a founding member of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Boise.

She loved to travel and spend time at the Oregon Coast where she made many memories with her children, grandchildren, and her friend and travel companion, Beverly Halling. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.

She is survived by her daughter, Chris Mata (and her husband Kelley) of Boise; by her son, Chad Siegel (his wife, Karyn) of Seattle, Washington; and stepdaughters Nancy Douglas of Loveland Colorado, and Barbara Holdener (Husband, Dave) of New Haven, Missouri. She is also survived by her grandchildren Joel and Allison Mata, Mark Siegel, Seth Riley, Alanna Brake (Jason), Shawna Schultz (Matt), and Michael Mickelson and Kinsey Riley. She has one great-grandchild, Cadence Schultz.

    I met Rosalie when she was a long-time active member and officer in Professional Secretaries International (PSI) in Boise. I fondly remember her as the “S” in CPS. She attended many PSI seminars, member retreats, and regional meetings. Rosalie was a good friend to many of us.
