Rose was a lifelong Peoria resident who retired from OSF St. Francis Medical Center in her late 70's. She was the proud owner/operator of Peoria's Big 500 tavern for many years and really enjoyed the opportunity to socialize with people from all walks of life.
Her family and friends have many "interesting" memories from parties, celebrations, and all kinds of get-togethers in memory of the BIG 5 with Rose. She was a unique, outspoken, opinionated, fun-loving woman who was generous and loyal to family and friends. She loved good jokes, family parties, quilting, baking, and good old Westerns. Her family and friends will dearly miss rose's warm heart and common sense.
