My Mom was born in Atascadero, California. Her parents are Vincente and Angelena Rossi. She graduated from Beauty School and was a beautician when she was in her early 20s. She moved to Barstow in the early 50s where she met my Dad, Harold U. Woolsey. She loved being outdoors; riding horses, gardening, fishing, baseball and many other outdoors events. She could not swim, but she was proud of the fact that she taught many, many kids how to swim. She was president of the Rodio Club, Garden Club, and the Womens Club. She also loved playing Bridge. Once she went to Hawaii to play in a tournament. When I asked her if she liked Hawaii she replied, "I didn't see Hawaii, I went there to play Bridge." OH MY! My father and her owned Woolsey and Associates; realty business, also Hal's and Kay's Store and Mama's Maid Laundromat.
