Her grandson Dean shared this beautiful tribute: "Anyone who knew my grandma could tell you she was the most gentle, kind, caring, loving and absolute sweetest person you could ever meet. She would sacrifice everything to help someone out. She taught me and the family how to love unconditionally and most importantly how to forgive someone no matter the reason. She was simply an angel on earth. She was always there through the toughest times and would never judge anyone. Words can't describe how perfect she was, she is my biggest inspiration. I know she is watching over all of us up in heaven. rest in peace Grandma Rose, until we meet again."
