Rosie Ferguson Ouimette was widowed in 2018 after caring for her disabled husband, David, for 16 years. During those 16 years, and in the four years since, she had to take on many of the tasks that her husband would normally have done. She learned how to do-it-yourself as well as how to ask others for help. Rosie and David have five children who were ages 16-23 when he died.
Rosie married Don Ouimette (a widower) in July of 2021. Together, they have nine children and six grandchildren. They live in Herriman, UT in a house that they are remodeling, which gives Rosie a chance to use many of the DIY skills she has learned.
