Rosann Lucille was born in St. Paul, on Sept. 7, 1931, the daughter of J Rudy and Marie Agnes (Anfang) Hoffmann. Rosann’s family moved to Redwood Falls and then back to St. Paul in her early years. She graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in 1949. She graduated from the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul with a Biology degree and St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in St. Paul with a BSN degree in 1953. 

On Sept. 6, 1954, she was united in marriage to Robert H Yurcek. The couple made their home in Sherburn where Rosann raised her family along with working as a registered nurse at the Trimont Nursing Home and then at the Fairmont Community Hospital, retiring from Nursing in 1994. She was a compassionate and caring nurse, always striving to provide the best possible care for and to meet the needs of her patients.  Following her retirement as a nurse, she embarked on a second “career” as office manager for her son’s CPA Practice in Madelia. They moved to their home in Kasson in 2007.

Her Catholic faith was very important to her throughout her life. In her later years, she attended daily Mass with her husband. She enjoyed crafting and bestowed upon her children and grandchildren many homemade Christmas ornaments, which are a cherished reminder of her love for them. She loved traveling to visit her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and was able to enjoy a number of special vacations over the years.
