RoseAnn Sayler
June 19, 1923-Jan. 5, 2020
Menlo Park, CA

On Sunday, January 5, 2020, Rose Ann Sayler, long time dance teacher and Menlo Park resident passed away at the age of 96. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Lewis Sayler and her six siblings. Rose Ann grew up in Oklahoma and it is told she took her first dance class when her older sister did not finish her chores, so RoseAnn was allowed to attend in her place. She loved to dance and left home to perform for the troops during WWII. After the war, she settled in Menlo Park and began teaching dance. At first the studio was named RoseAnn’s Dance Studio, but was later changed to Menlo Park Academy of Dance. RoseAnn was known for her infectious smile and strong determination as well as her love of children.
