Mary Rose touched so many people with her kindness and fun loving spirit. We met her several times at gatherings for our niece (Kristen Kahle) and nephew's (Ed Doherty) wedding and felt a connection with her. We are truly saddened to hear of her passing, want to send our deepest sympathies, and are making a donation to the Queen of Peace Catholic Church Sanctuary Fund in her honor.
