    I’m having a hard time describing how Rose affected my life. I can think of many situations we got into and if it hadn’t been for Rose’s sense of humor we would have had a much shorter life. Anyone remember the white Datsun? A game of spoons or cards in the kitchen? And ohhh the cinnamon buns. She was always busy taking care of someone. Thank you Rose for showing me no matter what happens you keep going on. I will miss you. My love to all who knew her.

    Rose Jensen was a strong and caring woman. She will be missed by all who knew her. My memories of Rose are a little foggy, one of the last times I saw her she was cutting the grass at her house on 2nd street one handed, as she had recently suffered a stroke. I remember thinking she was either incredibly strong or a little crazy. But that was Rose, if something had to be done, it got done, no matter what. There are many women who have influenced me in my life and she is high on the list. She was a tough bird and I will always respect that. My deepest sympathy to her family.

    Unfortunately I did not come into this family soon enough to really get to know Rose and try out her famous cinamon buns…my loss. My heart is with the family in this time of loss.
