down and started a family. Rose’s priority was always her family. She considered being a mother
her highest calling and wanted her children to know they were cared for and deeply loved.

and caring for her many well-loved dogs. Rose was a good friend to many people, and they
often came seeking her counsel and comfort. In her early thirties, Rose became a Christian, and
her faith in Christ never wavered. She attended Baptist churches in Modesto and Ceres,
California, as well as Caldwell, Idaho. Later in life, Rose took up painting and completed many
wonderful compositions that won awards in local contests in both California and Idaho.
Rose is survived by her three children, Renee Carter, Melvin Berry, and Lynn Berry, and by whom
she considered her “third” son, Dennis Carter (son-in-law), as well her grandchildren Joshua
Enos and Michelle Crandall.
