After working at Schellin’s Bakery, Rose went on to become a lunch mom at Brentwood Elementary School. During her time there, she was able become “grandma” to a large number of students and put a smile on their faces every day.

Reading was a passion of hers that she instilled in her girls and encouraged them to pursue. In addition, Rose taught her children a variety of crafts, the most important of which was crocheting, a skill that had been passed down to her by her own mother. In addition to these things, Rose adored bumblebees, giraffes, her rose garden, collecting Hummels, and spending time with her family and friends.
