Rose was born October 28, 1942, in Evergreen Township near Frazee, MN, to Frank and Ann (Joachim) Ulschmid.  She was the youngest of 10 siblings and part of a large extended family. She loved hugs from all her beloved nieces and nephews and cherished family gatherings.

Shortly after, they had identical twin sons, Jerome and James (that died as infants), son, Matthew and daughter, Jessica, both Moorhead. They were a close-knit family that lived in Kenosha, WI, on Rose Lake, Vergas, MN, several different homes in Vergas, MN, West Fargo, ND, then settled in Moorhead July of 1976 until the time of her passing.

Rose was a member of St. Francis de Sales Catholic church in Moorhead, from 1976 until her death.  She was a member of the Christian Mother’s and helped with countless events. Both Rose and Monty were strongly rooted in their Catholic faith; they even travelled to see Pope Paul II twice!
