Rose enjoyed cooking and baking German food.  She enjoyed shopping and working out at the Sue Wellness Guetrman Center.  Rose’s final year was spent at the Arbors Assisted Living Center in Waco.  There she made many friends and loved the staff members who dearly cared for her.  She also never forgot her longtime friend, Elly Smallwood of Hewitt and Margie Green of Hewitt.
