She loved spending time at their camp with the kids and grandchildren. She enjoyed time on their speed boat, flounder and bass fishing, going to community dances, house parties, camping and jam sessions. Most of Rose's favorite pastimes were spent with family and friends. Rose created many great memories with her lovely quilts.
