Mrs. Rose truly made an impact on every student, including myself. She treated us all as her own. During my senior year at St. John, she would bring me a breakfast sandwich, and we would sit in her office, and chat after morning announcements. This is just one of many fond memories I have of Mrs. Rose. Sending condolences to her entire family, especially Paul, who was my junior high school football coach.

Mrs. Rose, you had such an impact on me at St. John’s. As a writer, I think of your encouragement often as you gave me my first real journal. I’ll never forget being in your classroom and hearing all your stories. I hope you’re celebrating now with your boys in Heaven.
