Donna May Rose  passed away of natural causes on April 5, 2018 at age 90. She was the daughter of Luella and Edward Ervin, born March 24, 1928 and grew up in Pontiac, graduating from Pontiac High School.
Donna was a full of life individual, living life to the fullest, working hard, playing hard, with loving family and friends around her. She was a woman open to new ideas and adventures. She played golf locally as well as in Australia and Scotland, rafted in Colorado, climbed a butte in Oregon, swam at Clam Pass in Florida and even enjoyed simpler activities like puzzling and being with her grandkids. Donna worked up until a couple months ago at Carl’s Golfland which she co-founded with her husband Carl Rose. She was a great wife, mom, grandma and friend. Donna may not have always understood what we were doing or thinking, but she was always loving and accepting.
Donna is survived by her husband and life partner of 69 years, Carl F. Rose. She is survived by three children, Barbara J. Rose and her wife Valerie Vernon, Paula K. Rose and husband Mark Kjolhede, and Carl E. Rose and his wife Tiffany and their two children Ella and Jake. Preceded in death by her daughter Christine A. Rose who has two sons: Eric C. Webb, his wife Heather and daughters Sydney Webb and the late Sandra Webb and son Kevin E. Webb and his daughter Rhiley.
All who had the pleasure of knowing Donna, would agree “She was the Best” with the brightest of smiles!
