Dry cleaners in talks with buyer

Donna Rosiere has been trying to take care of her customers from a hospital bed.

The owner of Marion Dry Cleaning and Laundry is seeking a buyer for the business she no longer is able to run as she undergoes treatment for lung cancer.

“Be patient. We are trying to get it back,” she said during a phone interview from her room at Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital in El Dorado.

An interested buyer to whom Rosiere talking may send dry cleaning to another vendor but will clean, wash, dry, and fold laundry in house.

The two were working on a deal when Rosiere developed cellulitis Sunday and had to be rushed to the hospital.

“I have a list of customers who would come back in a heartbeat and I want to get with them,” she said.

Rosiere was diagnosed with lung cancer and brain lesions in May after she had a seizure.
