Obituary of Rose Anna Pischke

Rose Anna Pischke August 13, 1936 - August 12, 2021 Beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Rose Anna Pischke, passed to her eternal heavenly home on August 12, 2021, one day before her 85th birthday. She was at her home in Lakeport, CA, surrounded by loved ones. Rose was born on August 13th, 1936, in Mardela Springs, Maryland to George and Alice Hochmuth, the youngest of eight children. Rose grew up on the family farm, where she was born. After graduating from Mardela High School in 1954, Rose spent a short time in nursing school, then along with her sister, Mary, and best friend, Brenda, hopped on a bus to San Diego, California, seeking adventure. She often reminisced about working as a telephone operator, the penny walks they took, and records she loved during this time. It was here that she met the Navy man that soon became the love of her life and husband of 53 years, Arlin Pischke. After a short courtship Arlin and Rose were married on December 30, 1961 in San Diego. During their 53 years of marriage Rose and Arlin lived in Southern California and Wisconsin, before settling in Lakeport, CA in 1978. Rose is survived by her six children; Arlin Pischke (Danielle) of Southlake, TX, Katheryn Schultz (Dave) of Bakersfield, CA, Allyson Quinlan (Scott) of Murrieta, CA, Karyn Rasmussen (Brad) of Lakeport, CA, Kevin Pischke (Dena) of Lincoln, CA, and Susan Wolf (David) of Chesapeake, VA. She is also survived by her sixteen grandchildren, Andrew, Megan, Stephanie, Jacob, Kelsey, Joshua, Savannah, Cody, Sarah, Samuel, Logan, Caira, Cooper, Paige, Zeke, and Fisher; six great-grandchildren; her siblings, Alice, Joe, and Bill; and numerous nieces and nephews. Rose was an artist at heart, and if you ever received one of her beautifully decorated cakes or famous Grandma Rosie quilts you are familiar with her talents. She also touched the lives of many children with her work as a teacher’s aid at Lakeport Elementary, and as a daycare provider. Rose was strong in her Catholic faith, loved Jesus, and was an active member of Saint Mary Immaculate Parish since moving to Lakeport, 43 years ago. Over the years she served the parish as catechist teacher, member of the Belles, and eucharistic minister. Rose was always most proud of her family, and her family loved her deeply in return. Rose is now resting in peace with her beloved husband in the arms of Jesus. Graveside Services will be celebrated on Thursday, December 30, 2021, at 11 AM at Saint Mary’s Cemetery. Reception to follow at Saint Mary Immaculate Parish Hall.
