Janet Ruth was born on June 29, 1955, in Alexandria, Minnesota, the daughter of Harold and Ione (Hagen) Walberg. She was baptized and confirmed at Calvary Covenant Church in Evansville, MN and graduated from the Evansville High School in 1973.
On June 22, 1974, she married Gregory Rosin at Christ Lutheran Church in Elbow Lake. The family moved to Glenwood, MN, where they farmed and raised their family. After their fourth child she decided to go back to nursing school. She graduated from Alexandria Technical College in 1986 with her degree in Practical Nursing. In 1986, the family moved to Big Lake, Minnesota where she accepted the position as Dialysis Nurse for Hennepin County Faculty at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. This later became DaVita Dialysis where she worked traveling to various dialysis units throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. While at DaVita she also taught new dialysis nurse’s curriculum and policy.
In 1989, the family moved back to Elbow Lake where Janet worked as a traveling nurse. Janet retired from DaVita in 2020 and accepted a position at Maplewood Manor in Elbow Lake where she worked until she was diagnosed with cancer on December 3, 2020.
Janet loved to quilt, play games like scrabble and whist, she enjoyed history and reading romance novels and at the age of 49 took up motorcycles with her husband, Greg.
