LOCKPORT — Verlie G. Rose went to the Lord at Eastern Niagara Hospital on January 25, 2013, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on April 27, 1937, in Camden on Gauley, WV.

She was the daughter of Elza and Gladie Short. Verlie was employed at Korffs Furniture Store and retired from Harrison Radiator. She loved to work in her garden and enjoyed writing songs and poetry. She and others frequently performed music that she had written and her music touched many people; through her music she made many lifelong friendships.

She married her beloved husband, David J. Rose, on September 14, 1957. Together they had three children, Kenneth (Nam) Rose, Michele (Joseph) Parente and Marsha (Anthony) Sperduti. She had six cherished grandchildren, David Rose, Samantha (Keith) Reichard, Jacqueline and Allison Parente, and Lucas and Jackson Sperduti; and one great-granddaughter, Lula Reichard. Verlie is also survived by her sisters and brother, Lovis Heal, Arlene (Charlene) Short, Wanda (James) Steblein and Wilda (Peter) Schultz; and several nieces and nephews.
