Rose Marie Donohue, longtime Sparks resident, passed away on June 29, 2018. She is survived by her children Joseph Donohue, Margaret Donohue, and Moksha Donohue-Armstrong. "Rose" as she was known to friends and family was the daughter of John Duffy and Margaret Baker Duffy and moved with her husband (the late Joe Donohue) to Sparks in 2004 after spending time in Northern California and New York. She spent over 25 years working for IBM at a variety of positions until she retired in 1995.

Rose served on the board of the Rotary Club of Sparks and since January 2010, was the Treasurer on the Board of Trustees of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northern Nevada. She started volunteering there in 2008 and also served as President in recent years. Rose was key in the development of their largest fundraiser, the annual Red Shoe Gala, which is held every October.

Her family requests in lieu of flowers to please donate to the Ronald McDonald House as she was a passionate supporter of their work.

She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her. The family will hold a private Celebration of Life service on July 14th.
