Roseann M. McComish, age 91, of Dubuque, was called home peacefully at 5:53 p.m., on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at Stonehill Care Center, surrounded by her loving family. To honor Roseann's life, funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, May 6, 2017, at Holy Trinity Church, 1701 Rhomberg, with Rev. Aaron R. Junge officiating. To celebrate Roseann's life, family and friends may visit from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m., on Saturday, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

Roseann was born on June 15, 1925, in Dubuque, Iowa, daughter of Frank and Pansy (Savary) Mullen.

Roseann was united in marriage to Robert McComish on October 28, 1960, in Dubuque. They were blessed with 33 years, and 4 children, before he was called home ahead of her on July 9, 1994. Roseann was a devoted wife and mother who took great pride in caring for her family and home. Family was always the most important aspect of Roseann's life, but she also had a great love for nature and the great outdoors. She could often be found out walking, enjoying a family picnic at the park, or even just sitting and watching the birds. Roseann also enjoyed curling up with a good book and embracing a nice little escape for a few hours. We are deeply saddened with the lose of our sweet mother, but thankfully take comfort in knowing she is reunited with the love of her life, Robert, and all of her loved ones who've been called home ahead of her.

Those left to cherish Roseann's memory include

her children,
Suzanne Fox, Alice, TX,
Diane McComish, San Antonio, TX,
Jerry (Karen) Dress, Camarillo, CA
and Greg (Mary) McComish, San Antonio, TX;

her 4 grandchildren;

her 6 great-grandchildren;

and 1 sister-in-law,
Mary Mullen, Dubuque.

Roseann was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert McComish; a sister, Frances (LeRoy) Stahl; and 3 brothers, Clement (Jeanann) Mullen, John "Abe" Mullen and Donald Mullen.

A Roseann M. McComish memorial fund has been established, which will be distributed among her favorite charities.

The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Stonehill for all of their kind, compassionate, and professional care of Roseann, and her family, these past few years.
