Rose M. Cosgrave

Rose Cosgrave passed away in peace at the age of 92 with her caregiver by her side. Rose promised to save her a place in heaven! She is survived by her three children, Kathi Suter (Bill), Portland OR, John Cosgrave (Jennifer), Bend OR, and Rick Cosgrave (Michele), Seattle. Rose also has 5 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Rose and husband Dick raised a close loving family, and were married over 60 years when he passed at the age of 81. Rose was a devout Catholic, and her lifetime work was to volunteer weekly at the Catholic hospital (most recently Providence). As the wife of a United Air Lines Pilot she was well traveled and loved Hawaii almost as much as Seattle. Rose loved golf with her husband and family at Inglewood Golf Club where they lived for 30 years.

Everyone who knew Rose always said the same thing to her kids, "I love your Mom! She is such a sweet woman!"

For the last 7 years Rose lived at Miramont Pointe in Clackamas, OR where she made many friends. The family is grateful for the compassionate care provided by Miramont Pointe and Providence Hospice.
