She was a wonderful wife and loving mother. She loved to cook her Italian food, her favorite was making her homemade pasta, which will sorely be missed by all.

She loved playing bingo and the occasional trip to Wendover. Rose worked as a volunteer for the old St. Rose Catholic Church serving in many functions, helping those in need. She later worked for Davis Lanes as awaitress making many friends who will miss her.
