Norma Jeanette Rose

April 22, 1933 - Sept. 25, 2020

Norma Jeanette Davis Rose, 87, died in the comfort of her home with family by her side Sept. 25, 2020.

Norma was born in Burlington, Wyo., on April 22, 1933, the daughter of Joe and Lottie Davis.  She married Ron Rose Aug. 23, 1958.  Norma and Ron had one child, Ronda. They spent their first years of marriage in Iowa, later residing in Nebraska and Colorado before returning home to Burlington in 1976.

Norma was blessed in abundance with compassion and servitude for others.  She was a devoted wife and mother who gave everything to her family. Norma was a great friend and neighbor. Her circle of loved ones included a wide variety of ages, beliefs and backgrounds.  After retiring from the Big Horn County Courthouse, most of her time was spent with family and it wasn't unusual to see her delivering pies or bean soup on the golf cart with Dottie riding beside her. She was an excellent seamstress, cook, gardener and the list goes on. 

She is survived by daughter Ronda (Paul) Thatch; grandchildren, David (Megan) Rohrer, Tanner Rohrer, P.J. (Janel) Thatch; great grandchildren, Zaylee and Roxyn Rohrer, Roselena Gonzalez Rohrer, Neveah Gonzalez and Saylor Thatch; and niece, Susan Deering Thomas.

Norma was preceded in death by husband, Ronald David Rose; parents, Joseph and Lottie Davis; and sisters, Marjorie Fredrichsen and Gertrude Geering.

What a beautiful soul she was and always will be.
