Rose was a Nurse Anesthetist for over 30 years, working at St. Paul Hospital in Dallas, TX, and St. Elizabeth Hospital in Belleville, IL. She loved to travel and after her retirement, worked as a tour guide for Sunshine Holidays and the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. Rose loved all things in nature and wildlife; and was an avid birdwatcher. She was a volunteer at the St. Louis Zoo for many years. She touched countless people’s lives with her compassion and humor; her laugh was infectious. Above all, Rose loved her family. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren meant the world to her. She will be dearly missed.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to the St. Louis Zoo or the World Bird Sanctuary (in Valley Park) appreciated.
