It was sad to me to hear that this maternity home closed because I had some good memories there. Here’s one of the press releases I had sent out on behalf of one of their fund-raisers back in the good ole days…

I believe I was born at Rose Maternity Hospital J
June 20, 1946. I am trying to verify this information and
and learn as much as I can about the facility. I have
I have found my birth family and we are trying
to piece together what really happened. I would
appreciate any information available.

Hi Beverly, As I mentioned in my email to you, unfortunately, Rose Vista Maternity Home is not a hospital and I really don’t have any information to help you in your search.

I wish you much success, but can’t help you. Sorry.

Hi Joy,
I lived down the hall from you for 2 months. I lived at Rose Vista as well from March-May 2000. It’s been years but I can’t help but think of that place from time to time & the friends I made there. Have you kept in contact with anyone else there? I’m trying to find Nidia & Reba.
I have to go now, take care & god bless!

Hi Pam, I have a really bad memory and don’t remember what you look like or our living together. I’m sorry.

I’ve also lost touch with Nidia and Reba. I’m sorry I’m not more helpful! I hope you do connect with them, but…

Thanks for writing! Good to hear from you!
JOY
