On Feb. 2, 2022, Sandra Kay Rose beat her fight with multiple sclerosis after 33 years. Calvin Rose, her faithful husband of 42 years, never left her side and she was surrounded by family.
Sandy loved the Lord and served him her entire life. She accepted him as her savior at 9 years old and was baptized at College Heights Baptist Church in Alamosa, Colo.
She was more than happy being the central figure in the lives of her children and being a farmer’s wife was the pinnacle of her existence. She touched the lives of so many people and never turned a person who needed help away, especially teenagers.
She is survived by her husband, Calvin Rose Jr., and sister Shirley (Bobby) and brother Frank (Shellie) and sister-in-law Carolyn; her sons Zac and J.C. (Ashley); daughters Cassie (Beau) and Jamy; grandkids Bradley, Korah, Tylere, Colten (Amber), Sulley (Drakelyn), Colby, Jason, Dominick, Scarlette, Calvin, and Christian and great-grand baby Ampten.
She was preceded in death by her Momma and Daddy, Rowdy and Betty Martin; her sister Jeannie Lorenz and brother Jack Martin, and granddaughter, Ava Rae.
Her celebration of life and graduation to Heaven will be held Saturday, Feb. 12, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. at Connect Church, 1500 N. 10th St., Canon City, Colo. A reception will follow.
