My heart felt condolences to Jerry, Mark and Ronnie. Aunt Rose was a good and sweet woman. My dad,
her brother, commented often how he liked to visit with her because she made the best pies ever! Me, I loved
her pickles. She will surely be missed. Rest in peace aunt Rose.

I worked with Rose in the 80s at Richs Dept store. She was such a sweet, fun person and always had us laughing. One funny memory was I was working the service desk and Rose came up to take merchandise that was returned back to her dept. I look over at her and she has a pair of underwear on her head (clean of course). I will never forget her!! My condolences to her family!
