     She cherished and practiced her faith as a Roman Catholic deriving much strength and guidance from her close relationship with God. Rose held many temporary positions with various companies throughout her life but found her greatest joy as a caregiver and companion for Visiting Angels. Rose’s presence was unforgettable wherever life took her. She always had a kind word or gesture toward anyone she met. Her positive attitude always got her through the many challenges that she endured. She will always be remembered for her “fighting Irish” spirit.
