After moving to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she spent twenty years as a hospital volunteer and also volunteered at a sheltered workshop where her daughter Sharon worked. Rose loved to crochet and made many beautiful items which she generously gave away. Rose also enjoyed working with ceramics as well. She lived most of her life in Pittsburgh, where her family was born and raised. In 2016 she, and her husband Bud, and her daughter Sharon, moved to Kernersville, North Carolina to be near their two other daughters Lea and Tracey.
