On Oct. 25,1980, she was united in marriage to Collin “Fudge” Rose. She worked at the Tomah VA Medical Center for many years, as an occupational therapy assistant.
Anne had a big personality and entertained family and friends with her feisty sense of humor. She could bring humor to any situation and even in the darkest times of life she would have everyone laughing through their tears. She was a fabulous cook and no one left empty handed. She enjoyed spending time with her family and a shared love of golf with her brothers, Jim, Tom and Tiger. She shared a special relationship with her sister-in-law, Jan Ducklow, who was also her best friend. She also shared a special relationship with her nieces, Niki and Kim Ducklow and was always there to help out after Jan passed. She also had close relationships with her other sisters-in-law, Joanne Ducklow and Rosalie Ducklow, with whom she shared many laughs and great memories. She will be remembered for her big heart, her witty sense of humor, her generosity, her spoiled dogs, and her love of her family. We will all miss her immensely.
