Ivan J. Roggen, M.D.

Passed away on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at Cartwright Hospice Residence. She was 74 years old. Nanette DeRosia was born on August 5, 1936 in Saginaw to the late Rolland and Marguerite (Neiderstadt) DeRosia. She was married to Jack A. Gustin on June 28, 1958 at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Saginaw. He survives her. Nan was a graduate of St. Mary’s High School and a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church prior to joining St. John Vianney Catholic Church. She was a loving and devoted mother with many interests. Many people marveled at her creative talents including knitting, quilting and home decorating. She also had a love for reading. Nan’s kindness and generosity overflowed from her home into the community through her volunteer, mentoring and charity work.
