Rose Marie Clair

March 12, 1943 ~ November 8, 2023
Rose was born in 1943 to Charles and Susan “Ruby” Clair and attended the Oriskany Falls Union Free School. After graduation, Rose went to work at Cheesbrough Ponds (later Sherwood Medical), and continued employment there until her retirement many years later. Rose was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Ruby; brothers, Richard, John, Joseph, and Bernard; and a sister, Elizabeth Jane.  Rose is survived by her brother, Edward (Millie) Clair; and her best friend in life, her sister Mary Ellen “Kathleen” Cossette; along with several nieces and nephews. Rose, who went by Rosie by all who knew her, was an active member of the community throughout her life.  She was always willing to help a neighbor or friend, and often could be found caring for others who needed an extra hand.  Aunt Rosie loved her nephews and nieces, and although she had no children of her own, she treated each of these nephews and nieces as her own.  Her love for family was always present, and she was the first to reach out on birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations.

Pope Urban II orders first Crusade

“On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II makes perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages, giving rise to the Crusades by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land, with a cry of “Deus vult!” or “God wills it!” Born Odo of Lagery, Urban was a protege of the great reformer Pope Gregory VII. Like Gregory, he made internal reform his main focus, railing against simony (the selling of church offices) and other clerical abuses prevalent during the Middle Ages. Urban showed himself to be an adept and powerful cleric, and when he was elected pope in 1088, he applied his statecraft to weakening support for his rivals, notably Clement III.”
