Keep, Rose  
Rose Evelyn Keep, 88, was reunited with her parents and the Lord Dec. 18, 2014. Rose passed away at her Klamath Falls home with her loving daughter by her side. Rose was born April 11, 1926, in Klamath Falls, Ore., to Albert and Vera Clawson. Rose was the oldest of four siblings. Being the daughter of two Swedish immigrants meant her days were filled from morning to night with chores. Before school, she gathered eggs, fed the animals and helped dress her siblings. After school, they worked in their large garden filled with vegetables and flowers alike. Her spare time was spent learning her parents' native language, which she spoke until her passing. She graduated from Klamath Union High School and went on to North Park College in Chicago. She returned to Klamath Falls after working at a Chicago orphanage. She then married and raised two children, while doing book work for local businesses. She loved taking care of her home, especially her rose garden, which took her back to her youth and the family garden. She also enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren, but would always remind them she was just a "bull headed Swede." The church was a big part of Rose's life, and every Sunday she could be found at Immanuel Baptist Church. Having never had a license or car, she would make the walk in the rain, snow or shine. Rose is survived by her son, Glen Keep of Klamath Falls; daughter, Katherine Keep of Portland; grandchildren, Sabrina Park of Lake Oswego, Amy McKay of Klamath Falls and Miranda Stapelton of Camas, Wash.; brothers, Melvin and Harold Clawson of Klamath Falls. Rose was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy Strickler; and granddaughters, Hope Hendricks and Krista Keep. Thank you to all those friends and neighbors who cared for Rose throughout the years, and God bless.
