Maud Francis Ellison Rose passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Friday, May 13, 2016 of natural causes. She was 91 years old and was under the care of Heritage Home Health and Hospice while residing at the Gables Assisted Living in Pocatello, Idaho. She was born on October 2, 1924 in Blackfoot, Idaho to Donald and Ruth Arsenath Hayes Ellison. She was the fourth child of seven. Her family moved to Lake Shore, Utah when she was still a young child. It was on the family farm she learned her work ethic. Maud attended high school in Spanish Fork, Utah. She married Bert Hall Rose in Heber City, Utah on April 2, 1941. They moved to San Diego shortly thereafter where she was employed as a riveter at Consolidated Aircraft Company. She was literally "Rosie the Riveter". Her husband joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served in the Pacific Theater during WWII. In 1954 she and Bert moved to Blackfoot, Idaho where Bert worked at the Atomic Energy Commission as a bus driver. She owned and was an instructor at the Charm Beauty School and Salon. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she worked with the Guide Patrol boys for over 12 years and as a Family History Consultant. After Bert passed away in 1980, she continued her family history work and was an avid reader and student of the gospel.
