Rosie attended Otterbein college where she received her teaching degree and was a substitute elementary school teacher for over 40 years. While attending Otterbein she met and fell in love with Robert Dinkelacker, her husband of over 50 years. She is survived by her children, Lisa (Ed) Steiber, Dawn Warman, and Ray Dinkelacker. She found great joy as a grandmother to Alex Brett, Austin (Imani) Brett, Nicholas (Kendra) Walsh, India Warman, as well as a great-grandmother to Jayden and Josie Brett. She is also survived by her sister Janice (Dave) Noble and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Esther Yarman, her brother Gene Yarman, and her devoted husband, Robert Dinkelacker.

For over 40 years Rosie was a substitute elementary school teacher. Rosie has a name that embodies her charm and personality. She possessed a love for the arts and had a beautiful singing voice. She sang in the choir at Philippus United Church of Christ for many years. She also had a passion for Broadway shows, taking her grandchildren on unforgettable trips to experience the magic of live theater. Rosie had a green thumb and a natural ability to revive and nurture plants and flowers. Her flowers were a testament to her love for nature and her talent for cultivation. Rosie enjoyed spending time with many groups of friends which included Bridge Club, the Greenhills Old Folks and her husband’s old Marine buddies with whom they often traveled. Rosie was an avid reader and always had a book in her hand.

Rosie and Bob shared many wonderful adventures together which included travels to Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Scotland, England, Alaska and Hawaii. Rosie also enjoyed family vacations to Florida, Alabama, South Carolina and Punta Cana. Along with their travels they were devoted Bengals fans and were season ticket holders. They attended two Super Bowls in Detroit and Miami.

Guest Book

“I just learned of Rosie’s passing. So sorry I wasn’t at the services. Rosie and I sang together in the choir at Philippus, and she became a very dear friend. We had lunch together once a year. And we even attended a Bengals preseason game together. My thoughts and prayers are with all her survivors. 🙏💔”

“Rosie was a special lady. She was very intelligent with a good sense of humor. I went to high school with Bob at Greenhills High & we both played on the football team. My late wife Sue & I were good friends with Rosie & Bob. We attended their wedding near Columbus. They were both in our “Old Fogies” lunch group at GHS. We will miss them. Roger Petering”

“I was sorry to hear the news about Rosie. I taught with her at Bevis. She was a special person who will be missed. I’m sorry for your loss.”
