Interment Woodlawn Cemetery.

Born in Delray Detroit with the Armenian name Vartanoush to parents Henry Kasparian and Mary Koloian. She was their first child to be born in the United States.

Rose had four siblings: the late George, the late Angie, Sylvia & Terry.

Her only spoken language was Armenian upon entering grade school. She learned English and went on to graduate from Southwestern High School.

Rose then got a job at RL Polk for a brief period of time. After that she obtained a secretary position at Ford Motor Company. Rose moved up the ranks and became a secretary to upper management and continued to work at Ford for over 20 years.

During those single, working years she took many vacation trips with her co-worker girlfriends to various destinations. She married Harry in 1964 and a few years later in 1967 adopted Aram & then in 1969 Suzanne.

Rose chose to leave the work force and stay home with her children full time. She enjoyed bowling, weekly lunches with her girlfriends and traveling to Las Vegas with Harry to their winter home.

What gave her the most pleasure was watching her 5 grandchildren grow. They were her pride and joy.

Although Rose suffered severe health problems later in life, Harry's dedication, love and support carried her through many more years.

She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
