Our sweet mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend was born in Sissach, Switzerland, May 12, 1908, to Ernst Mundwiler and Louise Buser. After her parents died at a young age, she was raised by her foster parents, Fredrich and Agatha Drayer Dietrich. She married Otto Ernst Wilhelm Schloss on February 5, 1929 in Brooklyn, New York. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on Dec 13, 1939. Rosa was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She and her husband served a mission to the Germany North Mission in 1971 - 1973. She taught the nursery in the Garden Park Ward for 25 years and was involved in the creation of the Nursery Program as it is today. She served on a name-extraction mission for the Bonneville Stake until her health prevented her from continuing. Rosa will always be remembered for her Crazy Cake, Apple Cake, Potato Pancakes and Old Reliable.
