I remember Rose from her dedicated service to her community. She volunteered year after year as a Teller for the Annual Meeting and always arrived with a smile on her face and a How Can I Help Attitude. No matter how frazzled I was, Rose was cool as a cucumber. I so appreciated and needed her calm demeanor and cheerful countenance. Rose was an angel on earth and no doubt is an angel in heaven. I will miss her.
