Rose was caring, kind, loveable, hardworking, and always willing to help others. She was most proud of raising her children to become who they are today. Rose loved to sew clothes for her daughters to wear. Rose was influenced by Grandma Imbery's talent for sewing Barbie doll clothes, from wedding dresses to pajamas.
Roses favorite foods were fried chicken, homemade chicken noodle soup, dumplings, and apple pie with ice cream. While at home, Rose enjoyed watching television, from comedies to western movies.
Her favorite vacations were to the Black Hills in South Dakota, a camping trip to Colorado, and an RV road trip to Canada. There were many trips to visit family in South Dakota as well as Washington state to visit her grandchildren. She also traveled to see her brother, Harold, in California and her sister, Bernice, in Texas. Family summer vacations included rental cabins on Lake Emily in northern Minnesota. These trips were always a fun time with relatives or just making new friends in the resort. Rose's German potato salad stole the show at the resort fish fry each year.
We will miss our wife, mother, and grandmother Rose; but we are grateful that she is with our Lord now, free of her locked mind, and free to cook for the angels. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Minnesota Veteran's Home for the excellent medical care and compassion they provided to Rose.
