Rosanne Fletcher Abraham 1943 - 2018 Rosanne Fletcher Abraham, cherished wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend passed away on Friday, May 18th after a courageous battle with leukemia. Rosanne was born on June 5, 1943. She lived a life motivated by love and therefore made dear friends everywhere she lived throughout her life -- in Sugarhouse, Salt Lake City, West Valley City, and Orem, Utah. Rosanne was an accomplished pianist and spent her life sharing her musical talents with everyone around her. She composed music that was performed by her ward Primary and choir. She was also a “one-woman orchestra” for many musical productions at Heritage School in Provo, Utah where she worked with lifetime friend and director, Pat Davis. Rosanne played the piano and organ in various church callings throughout her life and rarely turned anyone down if they needed a pianist or organist for a meeting. She was also an accompanist for many choral groups and soloists. She could transpose a piece of music on the spot if the singer could not sing in the written key. Her musical ear was such that she could play anything after hearing it just once. She began teaching piano lessons at age 13 and taught hundreds of students over the years. Rosanne was very creative. She knew how to apply herself and learn new things. For example, she took cake decorating classes as a young adult and became an expert at this craft. She made wedding cakes for so many people she loved. She also enjoyed sewing and crocheting. She sewed clothing for her children and, in her last few years, made knitted hats for every member of her family, as well as many friends and unknown recipients of her kind donations. A lifelong student of the scriptures, Rosanne studied every morning and she had a great knowledge of and love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. She testified of the Savior often in her correspondence with friends and family. Her relationship with the Savior was very important to her and she relied on Him throughout her life. Rosanne is preceded in death by her parents, Leslie & Elva Fletcher and sons-in-law, Melvyn Frost and Dustin Hardman. She is survived by her husband, Larry Blaine Abraham; brother, Darrell Fletcher (Rose-Clair); children, Marlene Frost, Karen Nay (Brian), Sherene Hirschi, Laura Hardman, Cherilyn Cook (JP), Jill Asay, David Abraham (Yasmin), and Jeffrey Abraham (Belinda); 23 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Funeral services will be held 11:00 am, Thursday, May 24, 2018 at the LDS Timpanogos Chapel located at 1505 North 130 East, Orem, Utah where a viewing will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, Wednesday, May 23, 2018 and prior to services from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Interment will be at Valley View MemorialPark, 4335 West 4100 South, West Valley City, UT. The family would like to thank the staff of LDS Hospital, Loveland Cancer Clinic, Intermountain Homecare, and Inspiration Hospice for their tender loving care and expertise. We would also like to thank Rosanne’s many neighbors, ward members, and friends for their hours of service and love in her behalf.
