Rose was born on January 28, 1945, in Milbank, South Dakota to Donald and Eleanor (Stoick) Schuelke. Her family moved to Dawson in 1959 and she graduated from Dawson High School in 1963. On March 21, 1964, Rose married her high-school sweetheart, Rollie. They lived in Spencer, IA, Bloomington, MN, Delano, MN, and Wausau, WI before moving to Dawson in 1976. They were blessed with four children: Marty, Michael, Stephanie, and Jennifer.
For over 40 years, Rose lived a life entirely dedicated to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ—she served Him with endless passion and contagious joy. Without question, she loved nothing more than praising the Lord and sharing Jesus with everyone. Her warm gift of hospitality was second to none—opening her home to all, anytime, for meals, coffee & desserts, celebrations, visits on the deck, prayer meetings and Bible studies.
When she wasn’t swinging her dishtowel over her shoulder as she served in her beautiful kitchen, shaking her pom-pom at a sporting event—particularly football, or sitting with her Bible opened, she was a wonderful grandmother and truly was the heart of her family, lavishing them each with her love, grace, kindness, and Truth.
Rose enjoyed over 30 years selling real estate and insurance at Wold Agency in Dawson. She served on the Dawson-Boyd school board as well as local educational cooperative boards and was active with the Dawson Chamber.
She is survived by four children: Marty (Shelly) Wold, Michael (Jennifer) Wold, Stephanie (Mark) Weber, and Jennifer (Austin) Colby; fifteen grandchildren: Josie, Riley (Mikayla), and Mari Wold; Elle, Esten, Emma, Eli, and Eden Weber; Luke, Jake, Kate, Jude, Claire, James, and Joel Colby (+ one on the way); two great grandchildren: Charlotte and Tripp Wold; twelve siblings: Jeanette (Tom) Dooley, Jerome (LaVonne) Schuelke, Sandra (John) Reger, Mary (Bob) Kvam, DeAnne (Ron) Loven, Donnie (Diane) Schuelke, Larry (Ginny) Schuelke, LeRoy (Karen) Schuelke, Joseph (Donna) Schuelke, Joan (Tom) Zaiser, Jim (Carol) Schuelke, and Jacque (Craig) Leis; one sister-in-law, Mary (Paul) Wager and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Rollie, and her parents.
