On November 21, 2009 Rose Oliver passed away at the age of 87. Rose was born in Utah and moved to W.VA at the age of 2. She lived there until 1956 when she relocated with her family to California. Rose was a remarkable, radiant woman. Everyone who met her could see the love she had for her family and for all people. She loved God and it showed in everything she did. Rose always saw the bright side of things. "Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns." -Anonymous. Rose had a gift for teaching in which she excelled for 44 years. She was admired by her students and their parents. Her brother Dominick, as well as all her loved ones, will truly miss her. No words can express how wonderful Rose was, it is something we will always keep in our hearts. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.

  1. As a neighbor and teacher in West Virginia, she was special and caring. She provided a solid foundation for learning through her teaching and served as a model for life. God bless her!

  2. While I was only fortunate to spend a limited amount of time with you and your family on your visits to Michigan, I enjoyed every moment of that time. I enjoyed listening to your stories of the days when you were growing up. While it was under not so good circumstances, the passing of your brother Pat, that I was at your home in California, I will always remember sitting around the kitchen table listening to you tell stories of your days in West Virginia, as well as the time you went on your first job interview. You had everyone laughing so hard. I will cherish that forever. God bless you Rose.
