November 17, 1939 ~ July 18, 2021 (age 81)


Rosemarie “Rosie” (Dashner) DeLand was born November 17, 1939 on the Burt Lake reservation to parents Charles “Chet” and Rosanna Elizabeth (Nongueskwa) Dashner.

She married Kenneth Ivan DeLand on December 31, 1960 and lived in the Lansing area.

Rosie worked for Berman Marshal as a press operator for several years and later for the Lansing School District in childcare.

She had a passion for her cultural heritage and sharing the knowledge she learned. She taught beadwork and other traditional arts to people of all ages for many years at the Lansing Indian Center as well as different camps, cultural centers and traditional gatherings.

She moved back to her Waganakising community a few years ago to reconnect with family and old friends and make new friends. She did miss the Lansing area and would visit often.

Walking on before her were brothers Charles Jr. and Ray Morrow, parents Chet and Rosanna and her husband Ken. Carrying on her legacy is her sister Darlene (Dashner) Rowland, daughters Michelle DeLand, and Roxanne (Bob) DeLand-Phillips and granddaughters Carolynn, Kristina, and Kelsey. Along with Todd Parker, Cindi McIlrath, Lilli Parker, John, Patty, Jake and Luke Biernbaum and many nieces, nephews, great-grandchildren and camp kids.

Rosie walked on, on July 18, 2021 in Harris, MI.
