Keller, TX – Roselina “Rose” Leese died peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer, on February 9, 2016. She was born on December 31, 1934 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Rose, a long standing member of the United Methodist Church, was a loving mother and world’s greatest “Nana”. Rose and Fred raised their family in Ashton, Illinois. She worked for Crest Foods for over 10 years. In retirement, Fred and Rose lived with her eldest daughter in Keller, Texas. Her greatest pleasure was exploring new recipes, FarmVille and Mahjong, traveling and spending time with her family.

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we’re together again.
