    So sorry to hear of Rose’s passing, she was a wonderful woman. I enjoyed working with her on the Ambulance Board and considered her my friend. Prayers of comfort to all her family and friends.

    Rose Barnes, I am so saddened that you left this life. God must have needed you sooner than later. You were the best Paramedic that this EMT had ever worked with back in the 90’s. So compassionate. I am forever grateful and blessed to have known you and learned from you. Oh and thank you for not getting upset when I ripped the lights off the ambulance. I Wasn’t the best at parking in the old Stewartsville, Mo ambulance barn. You had the best disposition for a friend and a boss. I was so looking forward to you coming to visit me in Florida with your hubby and your fifth wheel. We had just messaged each other about that on Dec. 30th. I remember you taking the time to come to my nursing graduation and giving me sound advice about a lot of things in my life at that time. Thank you for helping me with IV Therapy calculations. You were intelligent, patient, kind, charismatic, SUPERB paramedic and a great friend. God has his reasons for everything in this life that us as humans may not understand but I know that HE always has us in his sights. Lord Jesus Christ please blanket Rose’s family with peace and understanding thru this loss and journey that they are going thru. In your name Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN. God bless your soul my sister in Christ. Until we meet again in Heaven.

    Rosie, we have known each other our entire lives. 70 years…. We may not have talked every day, but when we did, it was as if no time had passed. You were always my favorite cousin. Oh what trouble we got into when we were young. You were the ringleader…. We ran the streets, stole bubble gum from Dorothy Ringle’s drug store, and fought over the same boy at your 16th birthday party. We snuck out, making Aunt Rosie come looking for us at midnight. Oh.,she was sooooo mad at us. We were so ornery to the little kids… Peggy, Emma, and Frankie…. I remember Aunt Rosie would say we had to eat everything on our plate before we could leave the we’d load up little Frankie’s and Emma’s plate with our vegetables, and they were too little to tattle on us.. and off we’d go and they would still be sitting there. All of us kids slept in the same bed.. The little kids throwing their legs over our backs and wetting thee bed. We’d tell spooky stories scaring the little kids and hold back giggles when they would cry and make Uncle Art look under the bed.

    I’m so saddened by the news. Rose, as I remember her, was the neighborhood mom. She graciously hosted card games and movie time, always opening her home and heart to others. My heart goes out to the family. May she rest in peace!
