The family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1969 to open an electronics business. Rose was a Teacher and Pre School Director for most of her career. She started Springs Community Church Preschool and was part of the leadership team with Pastor Steve Brooks and Pastor Ron Gray. She successfully ran the school she loved for over twenty years and was passionate about bringing Christian values to their young students including those with special needs. Rose created a wonderful team of loving staff members and teachers.
She had found her calling and was determined to start children off on the right foot in school. Springs Community Church Preschool became one of the most popular schools in town and has served many generations. Rose partnered in the community with other Directors and School Districts. Her reputation personally and professionally was valued in high regard.
Rose loved her family and friends. She was part of The Mermaids that have swam together at Vista Grande Pool for over 40 years. The sisterhood that these women have created will last a lifetime. She loved gardening, cooking, entertaining, music and anything that Wayne and Michelle were involved in. She lived life fully and left no stone unturned. She was the ultimate example of a kind, loving woman who loved God.
