Rose was a great lady , devoted mother, and St. Louis Parishioner. Always positive and kind with a loving smiling face who lit up our Seventh and Eighth Street neighborhood. She will be missed!

I met Rosalie at Clover when I ran the beauty shop. Her hair appointments were important to her and she was most often on time. A few times she’d napped and I would go get her. Well I noticed her Popes and it became a big thing. She was glad I’d admired them and she loaned one out to the shop where I displayed it for several weeks, when it was safely returned. I loved the stories she told that started or ended with, “poor poor Leo”!
