Rose worked several jobs including Honey Well factory in Minneapolis, accounting at the LCO Casino and at the library at the LCO School where she recently retired. Rose was a strong Catholic and was a member of the New Post Catholic Church. Rose was an amazing aunt and was loved by everyone whom she knew.
