Williamsburg – After 105 years on this earth, Rose Bublis Munzel was called to heaven on July 2, 2014. She was pre-deceased by her sister Ann Marino from Chicago and her husband Edgar H. Munzel, a sports writer and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. She is survived by her only son, Dr. Thomas Munzel and his wife, Karen, of Williamsburg; her grandchildren Tia Adams (husband Brian) of Williamsburg and Greg Munzel (wife Alexandra) of Charleston, SC. She has 4 great- grandchildren, Ashley Belle Adams, Luke Adams, Banks Adams, and Maddox Munzel.
Rose was born in southern Illinois, grew up in Chicago and reared her son in Park Ridge, IL. She and Edgar moved to Williamsburg in 1980. A devoted mother, grandmother and great- grandmother, Rose loved to garden, cook, read and play golf. She was a member of King of Glory Lutheran Church. The family is indebted to the wonderful care givers at Consulate Healthcare of Williamsburg, who saw to her every need the last few years of her life. She taught us all many things and will be greatly missed.
A family graveside service will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg, 4445 Powhatan Pkwy, Williamsburg, VA. 23188,
