More than that, Rose loved her family, and was always a regular at the Briggs Family Reunions. She was someone who offered her services to help anyone in need, especially children. She had a bright smile that lit up the room. She was a beautiful person and always tried to stay positive. She loved her grandchildren and they were the world to her. Everyone she met admired her for her wisdom and strength.
