She is also survived by brother-in-law Gerry (Jodi) Geiger; sister-in-laws Sandi (Pat) Geiger Ryan and Paula (Jerry) Earl and many nieces and nephews. As a lifelong resident of Menasha, Rose had many close friends who were very important to her.

After raising 4 children alone and later with Stewart, she went back to work at Marathon Engineering and then Valley Trust. She was always active and involved. She loved golfing and cross-country skiing in her earlier years. You had to be quiet during Packers games so she wouldn't miss anything. The Brewers and most sports were always a topic of conversation. Volunteering was always something she would try to help with such as Meals on Wheels and transporting World Relief refugees. She often sang at funerals and was a member of the Y-Nots (better known by her stage name of Secondhand Rose). She was a participant in many different bridge clubs. Rose enjoyed sitting in her outdoor patio watching the birds and squirrels while looking at her flower berm called Rose Garden Way. Reading, Crossword Puzzles and Words with Friends were a part of daily life and Rose was a stickler for grammatical accuracy.
Since her house was always full from her out of town children and relatives visiting the nickname for home was called the Broadway B&B. Regretfully the Broadway B&B will be officially closing. As a former co-worker and friend of Rose's told us, "Heaven and Earth will never be the same."
The funeral service for Rose will be at 11:30 am on Thursday, November 3, 2016 at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 528 Second Street Menasha. There will be a visitation from 10:30-11:30 at the church before the service. Visitation will be 4:00-7:00pm Wednesday, November 2 at Wichmann Funeral Home Laemmrich Chapel, 312 Milwaukee St Menasha.
We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for the great care she received at both St. Elizabeth Hospital and Fox Valley Hematology and Oncology, even though she was taken from us much sooner than anyone ever expected.
