Ora Mae Glenn Rose, age 94, passed away on January 11, 2020 at her home in Dallas, Texas.

She was born on January 1, 1926 in Dallas, Texas to Charles Henry and Anna Louise Glenn. Ora Mae was raised in East Dallas and graduated from Crozier Tech in 1943. The day after graduation she started working at Republic National Bank in downtown Dallas.

She met Ralph Rose while visiting a friend's brother at the Army hospital in Temple, Texas. After weekend visits for a time, she married Ralph on November 24, 1945 in her parent's home. Upon his discharge from the hospital they moved to Portsmouth, Ohio and began their family. They eventually settled in Dallas permanently.

Ora Mae returned to work after her youngest child started school. She had several jobs over the years. She retired in 1991 from Dallas Independent School District. After retirement she enjoyed crocheting, cross-stitch, working puzzles, traveling and spending time with her kids and grandkids.

She will be remembered as a strong, loving person who was willing to help anyone who asked. She always put the needs of others ahead of her own. Her Sunday lunches were well-attended by family and by friends of the family.

She was preceded in death by Ralph Rose Jr., her parents, her two brothers and four sisters, and several nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her children Jeanine (Gary) Kunz, Jan (Paul) Holcomb, Judy Rose, and J.D. (Donna) Rose; her grandchildren David (Veronica), Darin (Clint) Kunz, Kim (Shannon) Burgan, Kerri (James) Bohan, Carter (Whitney) Rose, Travis Holcomb, Zachary Holcomb, and seven great-grandchildren.

Ora Mae was an inspiration to all who knew her.

Mrs. Rose was always a kind, remarkable and sweet mom to her family. So welcoming when I visited my friend, Jan. She made you feel every bit like family. A life well lived. A wonderful wife, mom and human being.

My prayers are with all the family.
