During WWII she worked at the Navel Depot and often told of writing to the service men that needed encouragement from home. She enjoyed Big Band music and dances at neighborhood parishes and later got a job at Yale and Town where she met her husband Edward. They married in 1947 at St. Bernard’s Church in Philadelphia but soon moved to Lafayette Hill where they raised 5 children.
Later in life Rose loved to travel with her husband and wonderful friends making memories that would last a lifetime. Ireland and Spain were favorites. Dancing and shopping were hobbies she enjoyed but most of all her time we devoted to her family. She was devoted and loving wife, daughter, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her love and generous spirit will be missed deeply.
