My deepest sympathies to the family, Rose was a wonderful person. I got to know Rose up at the Rothrock apts. My mom (Viv Bedlyon) loved her too.

So sorry for your loss. Rose was one of a kind. I will never forget her. Jody used to visit her when she worked at Valley View. My heart breaks for your whole family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you so much for sharing Rose with my family. My grandma Stella and Rose were roommates and best friends for the last few years. My Dad, Bill Mowery, would call me after all most every visit to let me know how Stella and Rose were doing. He had some very funny stories about them. When I would call Stella, I would always say hello to Rose and she would always ask me about my dog. My Dad and I are so thankful that we got to know Rose. I live out of state, but kept in touch by calling Stella and by sending Stella and Rose Bath and Body Works lotion anytime Stella would let me know they were running low. During my visits to PA, my dog and I would sit with Stella and Rose and we would just talk and talk. I LOVED visiting them. My Dad enjoyed his daily visits with Rose and Stella and loved keeping them stocked with lots of snacks. I was honored to have been able to wish Rose a 100th Birthday! Your family is so lucky to have had this amazing woman for in your lives. My heart go out to Rose's family for your loss.
Jennifer Reese, Daughter of Bill and Granddaughter of Stella

Rosie and I worked together at Displays and her loving spirit, spunk, and wit made it fun to come to work. What a life she had and if anybody could reach the 100 year old milestone I knew she'd do it. Sending my deepest sympathy to Rosies entire family. Rest in peace dear sweet Rosie! 🙏
