Rose had many jobs, she was the manager at Casey’s for three years, she worked as a CNA for 15 years, and then worked in the laundry at the St. James Living Center. Rose, loved to stay busy, she was always doing something with her time, from working her crossword books, to working on her flowers. She would say weeds need to be pulled and flowers needed to be watered. In the evenings to relax she would crochet flowers and do latch hooks. She also gave her time to the community through volunteering at the St. James Caring Center. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
