Rosalie Czulewicz married Edward Stolinski Jr. in 1961. During their forty-one years of marriage, they raised three children, who gave them eight grandchildren. Edward died unexpectedly in August 2001. Rosalie currently owns and manages Interiors by Rosalie, an interior design firm with both residential and commercial clients along the East Coast. She lives in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, with her husband of five years, Tom, the “knight” who swept her off her feet in 2004. They enjoy celebrating their love and life together through traveling. Together, they have helped each other through the darkness of grief and onward to the light of hope Both the spontaneous writing of her poetry and the deliberate molding of her book, "Stormy Waters: From the Darkness of Grief to the Light of Hope," contributed to Rosalie’s healing process. She hopes that her faithfilled journey through grief to hope will inspire others no matter where they are, in the midst of stormy waters.
