A loving mother and homemaker, Rose was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends.  Over the years she collected a large library of recipes from family, friends and her community.  Rose's hobbies included embroidering, quilting and home canning.  She loved holidays and large family gatherings e.g., the annual Snyder family reunion.

Rose was lovingly cared for at home by her son John and daughter Carole until the last few weeks of life.  The family gives them and everyone else who cared for Rose at Pennknoll and Home Nursing Agency Hospice Care their greatest gratitude.
