Anne Elizabeth Rose was born on January 3, 1940, in Lidgerwood, ND to Stephen and Ellen Rose. She graduated in 1957 from Park Rapids High School.  Anne was united in marriage to James “Jim” Sadusky of Staples on September 9, 1961, in Two Inlets, MN.  They enjoyed 55 years of marriage together before his passing in 2016. Together, they raised three children: Mark, Lisa, and Tim.  In her early years, Anne was a secretary, bookkeeper, and proud homemaker.  Later, Anne owned and operated The Brothers Three Furniture in Staples, and in retirement was a friendly face at the welcome desk at Lakewood Health System.  She was a long-time member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and she loved Jesus.


Anne loved spending time with family, especially holiday gatherings and family reunions.  She was very proud of her grandchildren, and enjoyed attending and supporting their school functions, sports, and musical events.  In recent years, she loved visits from her great-grandchildren and was affectionately known as “GG”.  As an avid reader, Anne was often found with a book in her hands.  She also enjoyed watching the Twins, playing cards, bowling, camping, sewing, bird watching, and gardening.  Anne was selfless and giving, supportive and cheerful, kind and loving.  She had a joyful smile, the biggest heart, and the best hugs. She will forever hold a legacy of generosity, family, and love.
