Sincere sympathy to everyone in Rose's family for her sudden passing. We were good friends at DHS (Class of '71) where Rose was Class Historian and Homecoming Queen.

Rice Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Rose. She was a very hard worker, compassionate, and someone who was a very good friend. Giving her organs is so thought-ful, just like Rose was. Her death, donation her organs, provided life to many deserving people, what an awe-some Christmas to many.
In Christian Love, Pandora

My heart is sad as I read of the passing of my friend and mentor. Rose and I worked together at the dealership for years and she truly knew her stuff! She was an absolute perfectionist and wouldn't settle for anything less from the rest of us. It was because of Rose that I learned the ins and outs of a General Motors dealership and she taught me well. I have nothing but respect for her. We went to St. Louis together once for her to bowl (I was moral support) and Byron told me she would drive to Pittsburgh faster than the plane would go! We had a blast and I missed seeing her after I moved from Woodsfield and she did too. You have my condolences on your loss and may your memories bring a smile after some of the pain has eased.
