Rose “Posie” took pleasure in taking care of others; professionally as a bookkeeper and also personally as the matriarch of her family. Her love and compassion had an impact on all who knew her. The holidays meant so much to her and everything she cooked and decorated had to be just right. At any time you could walk into her home and have a delicious meal ready in no time. She will be deeply missed.
Our family would like to express our deep appreciation to the staff at Steere House not only for their compassion but for going above and beyond what was necessary. During her time there she was treated like family and at the end of her life she was shown dignity, grace and an outpouring of affection. We always took comfort knowing she was in good hands. Thank you for everything.
