Among Rose’s many hobbies was sewing quilts for all her children and grandchildren. She was never known to have missed a game of bingo at Touchmark Senior Living. She loved jigsaw puzzles, word puzzles, and was also an avid reader of a variety of literature, but among her favorite was the subject of history.
