Rose had a green thumb and that was quite evident in the beautiful plants and flower beds she planted and cared for over the years. She had a love for animals, especially her cats and dogs. She enjoyed old time music and attended many dances with John as her dancing partner. Rose and John traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad.

Rose was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Tony Yantzer and Matt (Betty) Yantzer; sisters, Veronica (Gedius) Frohlich, Clara (Nick) Mosbrucker and brother-in-law, Peter Fleck.

The family would like to thank the staff at CHI St. Alexius Health and Touchmark for the wonderful care that Rose received.
