She was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Waite Park where she was active in St. Anne’s Christian Women. Rose was also a member of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 9 in St. Cloud. She enjoyed gardening, plants, and sewing. Rose grew up listening and dancing to old time music and she continued to dance throughout her life, especially with all of her sons. Rose was strong, hardworking, kind, loving and most certainly had a feisty side. She was proud of her family and found solace in attending mass regularly.
