Rose was an active stay at home wife and Mom, the kind of wife and mother described in Proverbs 31 - worth more than rubies, watching over the affairs of her household, making sure every need is met, never lazy. Her husband praises her and lacks nothing of value, her children arise and call her blessed. When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says.” Rose lived a rich, full, beautiful life and loved her big family with all her heart. She will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched.

“Honor her for all her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” Proverbs 31:33
