8 Tributes to Rose “Rosebud” (Yax) Snyder

    How do you begin to look back on somebody who had such an impact on myself, as well as countless other people? Lisa is correct, they definitely broke the mold with the Rosebud. I have had the distinct pleasure and honor to have been friends with Rose for about 35 years. We definitely had our share of ups and downs, but laughter and respect was something that was always a common thread. Rose was always funny, but more importantly to me, someone who would listen to fools such as myself. She never judged me at all, but always offered her support and love. She probably will be one of my closest friends in my lifetime, as I let very few people into my sphere. As sad as it is that she is no longer with us, you can’t help but smile at all of the great times she provided to all of us. I can only hope that Lisa, and the entire family know how much she loved all of you, and how happy I have been sharing a part of your lives with you. Jim, you were such an important part of her life too-she truly was a better woman because of you. I ask that you all carry on her happy spirit, no, that would be CRAZY spirit! This world needs so much more laughter…and I’m sure she is cracking up Elvis right now. God Bless you all and the Rosebud

    The 1st time I met Rosie was at a VFW clam bake in 1996. Brian introduced me to her and she grabbed my arm and told me to take a seat. She told me to start talking so I gave her my low down. I think she was checking me out to make sure I was good enough for Brian LOL. By the time we were done talking I knew she was going to be someone I would fall in love with… and I did. Her big personality was so contagious that you couldn’t help but want to know what was on her mind that particular day. And let me tell you, she spoke her mind. I felt it to be refreshing as she always told it like see saw it! My only regret about meeting Rosie was when I did. I missed all the shenanigans that went on at the old Larry’s. I bet she is shaking up heaven right about now, I just hope she has a smile on her face. Rosie thank you for taking me into your fold and know how much I love you and how much I will miss our talks. Rest In Peace Woman… I’ll see you on the other side! Love ❤️

    Omg I don’t know where , to start …. back in the early 80’s is when I met “Rosebud” . She worked in my husbands bar ( it was called Pickle Patties at the time – then it became Larry’s, when my husband sold the bar to Larry Mills Sr. . It’s hard to believe, they put an Arby’s in place of our hang- out . At times Rosie would invite our circle of friends over to her place ,had dinner , play card games, laugh . Rosie always had a smile …. the nicest person I’ve met . My brother James knew of Rosie , because of Lisa & Keith . Then after I had my own children I would go and make a visit. As time went on we tend to get busy with our own family life . Every time I would run into Rosie she would say to me – stop over some day . I should have . Life is too short to be busy … she will be sadly missed by all of us – she would always say my husband and his friends were crazy …. back in the days . RIP Rosebud
