Rose will always be remembered by those who really knew her for the love of her large extended family, her joy in taking care of her flowers, her great sense of humor, playing Scrabble, Words With Friends, and Canasta, and of course her infamous lasagne!  She enjoyed her time with her special friends in the Del Webb community, and we’ll always be very appreciative and grateful for the support they provided to our family.
