Armer, Rose grew up in upstate New York, was a whiz with numbers, and worked as a bookkeeper in her early adult years. Life with her husband, James, then took her to Virginia, Delaware, California, Connecticut, and finally, to Michigan, where she devoted her time and love to her family and home while always making time to serve children and her church.

All who knew Rose were the beneficiaries of her compassion, kindness and listening ear. Rose’s family and friends knew her as strong, centered, and selfless. After her children were grown, while living on Stark St. in Saginaw near two hospitals, Rose devoted herself to her Hospitality House ministry, opening her home to families in need of a place to stay while a loved one was in the hospital, as well as to young interns. She put her listening ear to good use as many appreciated coming home to someone to talk to, rather than an empty hotel room. Rose was also a loving servant to children. Whether in church, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or as a neighborhood mom, children knew they had a friend in Rose.

Rose is will be missed by her children James (Nedra) of Double Adobe, AZ; Letha (Rex) Raymond of Lake Station, MI; Thomas (Karen) of Grove City, OH; Andre (Lori) of Fort Wayne, IN; and Amy Pauquette of Bay City, MI; thirteen grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, daughter-in-law Janet Pauquette, several beloved brothers-and-sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, and friends, including many who called her “Mom” or “Grandma Rose”. Rose was preceded in death by her beloved husband of sixty-four years, James, her parents, her sisters Ruth and Mary, and her brothers Leon, Joseph, Thomas, Clarence and Anthony.

According to her wishes cremation has already taken place. Rose’s family will gather for a memorial service and celebration of her life later this summer.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Clare United Methodist Church Childcare Building Fund, 105 E. 7th St, Clare, MI 48617,; Plan International, 155 Plan Way, Warwick, RI 02886; or Hospice of MidMichigan Health;
