JULY 21, 1997
A 60-year-old Bothell woman passed away last week while recovering from an accident that occurred July 6. Rosie Prata, mother of five, died July 17 at Harborview Hospital from complications suffered in the accident, according to the King County Medical Examiner office. Her condition had been improving after being admitted for multiple fractures received in a two-car collision on the 17300 block of State Route 522.
Rosie will be remembered as grandmotherly. She believed that everyone deserved something new when born, according to friends. She made baby clothes and blankets for poor and unwed mothers and was sometimes known as "Grandma Rosie." She was active in the Catholic Church and liked to garden as well.
Rosie is survived by her husband, Tom, and her children, Anna, Tom, Tony, Pat and John.
