On April 22, 1920, in Deedsville, Rosie was the second child born to Ray M. and Zella M. Kerschner Robins. Growing up she shared her childhood with three sisters and one brother. Proudly she graduated from Deedsville High School with the Class of 1939.  As a Deedsville Trojan, she was her senior class president and was active in the school plays.
