Following their marriage, they lived in and around Pipestone County. In 1960, they moved to the Kallemeyn family farm. While living on the farm, Rose raised their eight children and also helped with the daily chores on the farm. In 1980, following their house fire, they moved to a home one mile north.

Rose was an accommodating person and whenever visitors came, she always had a cup of hot cocoa or coffee ready. She was an avid reader, enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, and word finds. Rose was a giving person that had a deep love of God, her family and life. She spent many hours crocheting baby blankets for all of her grandchildren. Her dog “Peanut” was a faithful companion, always by her side.
