Rose was a long time member of the LaRue Baptist Church which is where she was married.

She had a gifted talent for sewing and quilt making.

Prior to her early retirement because of health reasons, she was employed at the Marion County Auditors Office where she began the G I S System for Marion County.

Kramer and family,

   My deepest sympathies on your loss.  I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to meet Rose and share some of the precious time she had left.  I can still see how her eyes lit up when she explained to me her work with the GIS system for Marion County and when she talked about you and the grandchildren.  God be with you and provide you comfort and strength.  Take care.

Kramer,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I was helping my daughter move to N.C. that week and didn't see it in the Star. I'll pray for you and your grandchildren who I know Rose Mary loved and were her inspiration for life.

Bob
