Death of anyrose: This is neither mundane, nor pointless.

Hi.

I've just discovered on Facebook that our friend Anyrose has died.

RIP Naomi.

So sorry.

After all she dealt with in the last year, I'm so sorry. She was active just yesterday, less than 24 hours ago.

And she only just got approved for benefits for her disabilities.

RIP Naomi.

Does anyone know what happened to her? I went post-diving on her and she was recovering from pneumonia, on top of all her other health problems.

According to a post on FB, she succumbed to the pneumonia. Obviously very sudden...

That's devastating news, I remember reading posts she was making just a few days ago. I hope she can finally be at rest now.

Death of anyrose: This is neither mundane, nor pointless.

anyrose was a fixture in the MMP and a genuinely kind board member. I think she was my first SDMB friend. She was in rehab for a broken leg when she developed pneumonia. It appears she died from complications of that.

She was the cute one.

(I fixed her username in thread title, btw).

rosie, her MMP nickname, gladdened the hearts of all who knew her IRL and on the internet. Her passing saddens all of our hearts as well. RIP Naomi. You will be greatly missed.

I will admit I spent the day hoping for a Facebook kerfuffle caused by a misunderstanding somewhere, but, alas, the family has confirmed this now.

If anyone is interested, the details for her memorial and other pertinent information is being posted now on Facebook. If it would be helpful, I would be glad to share that information here as well. PM me or post to the thread.

This is a sad day. 2016 bites.

She would sometimes help me through hard times.

And then there was the time when I mentioned in the MMP that I'd made cookies, and I jokingly suggested I could send them to people who wanted them - and she took me up on my offer. I'm glad she enjoyed those cookies.

And I hope that by donating some money to her funding page, I made the end of her life a bit more bearable.

RIP rosie, I miss you so much.

I'm so, so sorry rosie is gone. Over the years, I didn't get to interact with her much, but I knew of her most recent struggles and had been praying things would improve. When it looked like she would keep her home, I was so happy for her. What a darling woman who had such strength and touched so many lives. May she finally be at peace.
