Rose E. (McCarthy) Janas, 91, of Perrysburg, Ohio passed away Monday, September 10, 2018 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio (Perrysburg). She was born in Toledo, Ohio on November 30, 1926 to Martin J. and Mary (Spellman) McCarthy. Rose married her sweetheart, Stanley A.

She was a faithful member of St. Rose Catholic Church, where she was in the Altar Society and volunteered in the school cafeteria. She belonged to a bridge and knitting club with many of her closest lady friends. Rose was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many and will be deeply missed.

Rose was very proud of her Irish heritage, having traveled to Ireland on two occasions. She also had a strong devotion to Padre Pio and St. Mother Theresa, who she had the opportunity to meet and hold hands with in prayer.
