RoozenGaarde® - Bernadette Roozen Miller
Some flowers are so perfect, so rare... that when they are gone, so goes the color from our lives. Until they are remembered.
One such flower was Bernadette... a daughter, sister, wife, aunt, friend... who faded in full bloom. Leaving a legacy called RoozenGaarde.
"It's been very near and dear to my heart. A lot of it has become a reflection of me and my life." -Bernadette Roozen Miller
In 1987, Bernadette Roozen Miller left her career in bank management to build a dream she called RoozenGaarde.
It was Bernadette's vision that shaped our company's retail store. It was her hands that built it. And it was her heart and passion that nurtured its growth.
Today, RoozenGaarde is still with us, though Bernadette is not. She passed away in 1996 after a long and courageous battle with a rare disease called amyloidosis.
It is to Bernadette... and all the rare, young flowers who fade too soon... this web page is dedicated.
Because of her illness, Bernadette became an advocate for the Organ Donation program and encouraged others to participate in this life giving program. If you are interested in learning more about becoming an organ donor, please contact The National Kidney Foundation for more information.
