Rosalie Marie Hill Elliott
Rosalie was born on January 10th, 1926 in Philadelphia, PA. She passed away peacefully in her home, on April 16th 2020.
Rosalie is survived by her children Bay Elliott (and wife Sandra), Audrey Ainberger (and husband Christian), Don Elliott (and partner Lisa), Mark Elliott (and partner Jamie) and granddaughter Kate Elliott (and husband Felipe), and grandsons Scott Shypula and Sean Shypula (and wife Heather). She is also survived by countless loved ones who were part of her incredible life.
Rosalie raised five active children throughout the 1950s and ‘60s during which time her contributions to the community extended to arts, culture and politics, including chairing the Beax Arts Council, and serving as President of the University of Miami Women’s Guild. Rosalie then began a decades-long career as one of South Florida’s most legendary real estate brokers. She first joined John Stadler at his firm on Red Road in South Miami. Her resume is decorated with achievements, member of the Master Broker’s Association, top sales agent in all of her firms (Stadler, Prudential, Coldwell Banker), and most importantly, mentor to countless new agents to whom she gave unconditional time and advice.
In addition to her limitless achievements as a mother and businesswoman, Rosalie also possessed talents and passions for national and international travel, drawing, painting, writing poetry, story-telling and gardening. Not only was Rosalie a talented person, she was also recognized as one of Miami’s most beautiful women, due in part to her natural beauty, part to her grace and charm, and part to her impeccable style and dress.
Rosalie remained elegant, selfless, independent and mom to all, up to her last moment with us. She treated everyone as family, and there are many friends of her children and grandchildren who knew her as a second mom. We are blessed that so many are still in touch today.
Covering Rosalie’s entire 94 years of incredible life would require an encyclopedia. She was simply amazing. She will be missed by every single person privileged to know her. She would understand being very sad about her passing, but she would also encourage you to turn your sadness into love, appreciation, and shared-time with your family and friends; to cherish every precious moment. Her philosophy in life was always very simple: “Take care of yourself, take care of others; no muss, no fuss.”
We hope you will take this time to remember her and post your memories of her, funny stories, pictures and condolences. Under her picture is a link that will allow you to leave a memory or just click on the “tribute wall”. She would love it if you shared, and we will be updating this page from time to time, so please stop by and visit periodically.
