  1. Rose was a kind and lovely lady. She and her husband, Bob, were good neighbors and so kind to my mother. What a lively personality. The neighborhood trio–Rose Waltz, Rose Kelly, and Rose Williams! May she be flying high with the angels.

  2. We were so very sorry to hear of Rose’s passing. She and Mr. Juliano lived next door to us on Brightway and you couldn’t ask for nicer neighbors! My mom really missed her when she moved to Overlook! I’ll always cherish my memories of her…..
