Family Letter Notes for Rommanus Mathias (Roman) & Rosamond (Family)
Romy and Rose were married, at Bluffton in 1946. They lived in various places in Minnesota until 1948, when they moved to Montana, and to Arizona in 1950 for Butch’s health because he had asthma.

Here, Romy eventually started his own business (1958) as a meat cutter and butcher, a trade he learned from his uncle in Long Prairie, Minnesota. Rose was an LPN and dress store owner. She was able to send many outfits for Ambrose’s children when Hildegard died. She left this business behind to be bookkeeper and to help Romy in his business, which they called “The Market Basket”. Romy went out to the country to slaughter animals for ranchers until 2003. Kingman where they currently live (2008) has been growing with more and more of the Snowbirds taking residence there.

Romy has always enjoyed hunting and card playing. Rose has enjoyed card playing, sewing and crafts.

Together, through the years, they have welcomed a host of friends and relatives traveling to the south.

Their love of children has been evident as they have cared for and loved foster children as well as adopting two children. The children live pretty much in Arizona and thereabouts.
