Rose Rosengrant (nee Marinski) passed away on May 7, 2013 in the company of her family.

Rose was born in Henrietta, OK on Feb. 21, 1916 to immigrant parents from what is now Slovenia. During the Depression, her family settled into Taylorville, Illinois where Rose spent most of her early life until she graduated from Taylorville high school in 1934. After graduation, Rose began work in a local greeting card factory. In 1943, she married Warren Rosengrant, a pilot in the U.S. Navy, whom she had admired while in high school. As a Navy wife, she experienced extensive travel to various duty assignments throughout the United States. Among other stations, these assignments included Guam Island during civilian reoccupation in 1947, Whidbey Island, WA (1948-49), Norfolk, VA (1956-58), Glenco, GA (1959-60), Quonset Point, RI (1962-63), and San Diego, CA (1963-66) until her husband’s retirement from the Navy. Even though she had never visited her mother’s native country of Slovenia, Rose maintained correspondence with her relatives there even during the Cold War. Rose had three sons – Carl, Kenneth and Mark. Rose later resumed her work career in San Diego (1976-1998) where she worked at the Marine Corps Exchange and Baskin Robbins.

Survivors include her sons, Carl (Cindy), Kenneth (Joyce), and Mark (Yulia), plus grandchildren Matthew, Gretchen, Katrina, Ingrid, Andrew, Octavio, Katie, and Alana. She is also survived by her extended family that lives in Slovenia.

Graveside services will be held 10:30 a.m., Thursday, May 16, 2013 at Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville with Father Alan Hunter officiating.
