Rose was considered the "Rock" of her immediate and extended family. Those who knew her best understood that she was tough and would speak her mind, yet she was tender-hearted, generous, loving and trustworthy. And you could always count on her for a good laugh as well! Rose was a "Jane of all trades" and always worked hard (and smart) no matter what she did. Her jobs ranged from Telephone Operator, Secretary, Certified Nurse's Assistant, Accounts Receivable Supervisor, to Nanny. There was nothing she couldn't handle with care and efficiency. For Rose, everything was "No Problem!"
The Funeral Service for Rose will be Private due to Covid precautions. In lieu of flowers or donations, please pay your kindness forward and make someone smile in honor of Rose Be willing to help another with generosity and random acts of kindness. She would love that!
