Rose was a member of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, Findlay. She was treasurer of the 55 Plus Club of St. Michael’s and a volunteer for Blanchard Valley Hospital.
She enjoyed reading, solving word puzzles, and watching sports. Her greatest joy though was spending time with her family. She will be greatly missed.
Rose “fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.”
