ObituaryShare A Memory
We are sad to tell of the passing of our spunky little mother Rosie Ascuaga Roth Kadel.  She was 93.
Rosie was born on January 7, 1925 to Jose Ascuaga and Marina Equiluz in Caldwell, Idaho. Growing up in Notus, Idaho, she attended Enrose School and then graduated from Notus High School in 1943.  She graduated from the University of Idaho in 1948 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education.  From there, she took a job as a music teacher with the Wapato School District in 1949.  She also taught music at Parker and Parker Heights.  She met Albert “Bud” Roth at a Wapato High School football game in 1949 and they married in June of 1950.  Rosie & Bud had 2 children – Tina & Tony.  The Roth family would make their annual trek each summer to visit the Ascuaga clan in Caldwell.  Rosie also enjoyed visiting her twin brother John Ascuaga’s hotel and casino in Sparks, Nevada.  She was invited on a few occasions to play the organ for different events, which she loved doing!
After Bud passed away in 1980, Rosie continued to stay busy by playing the organ at church and going German dancing with Bud’s brother Clarence and his wife, Neosha. Rosie retired from teaching in 1987 and kept busy working in her yard…she loved being outside! 
At the end of 1989, Rosie was dating Kermit Kadel, her high school sweetheart from Notus High School. They married in April of 1990 and she moved to Notus, Idaho.  Kermit passed away in 2009.  
After a fall in her home in August of 2017, she took up residence at Autumn Wind in Caldwell.  After putting Autumn Wind on notice for their vintage piano, the organ she had in her home was moved to Autumn Wind.  The residents loved listening to her music on a regular basis - she told us that she felt this was the best she had ever played…she started playing when she was 5 and played by ear, most of the time. 
Rosie was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church and the Notus Lunch Bunch.  She loved reading and was an energetic supporter of the BSU Broncos and Gonzaga Bulldogs.  She was a great cook and her fried chicken can never be replicated, even though we have taken notes!  
She is survived by her children, Tina & Lynn Tindall of Louisville, Colorado and Tony & Linda Roth of Moxee, Washington; granddaughter Abigail Rose Roth, twin brother, John J. Ascuaga. She is preceded in death by her parents Jose & Marina Ascuaga, her husbands, Bud Roth & Kermit Kadel and siblings, Carmen Ascuaga Blackwell and Frank Ascuaga.  

To express our love and celebration of her, and our gratitude for having been touched by her, we invite all her friends and loved ones to a Celebration of Life Event to be held on Saturday, April 21 at the Wine Country Event Center, 7998 Vialago Pkwy, Zillah, WA  98953 starting at 5pm.  
Gifts in memory of Rosie may be directed to the University of Idaho Foundation for Lionel Hampton School of Music and mailed to 875 Perimeter Drive, MS 3143, Moscow, ID 83844-3143.
