Rose was a very kind and generous person who if you needed something and she had it she would give it to you; she had a lot of friends. She worked as a Junker for 7 years for Pacific Iron and Steel in Boise. She worked very and hard until the law said no more burning copper wires. She was also a great care giver and took care of her mother until her passing and her sister Marie and brother Charlie until they entered into care facilities. She also worked for many years for Peggy Gibbs at her assisted living home.

Rose was a great cook. She loved to cook for friends and family. She also loved the great outdoors, enjoying many fishing trips with her beloved Jack, and son Richard.
