Pat was born June 15, 1928, in Fairfield Township, Iowa, the daughter of Vance and Clara (Schroeder) Peters. She attended country school and graduated from high school in Preston, Iowa, and Iowa Teachers College in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Pat married Bob Rose in August of 1949. Her first teaching job was in a one room country school teaching students in grades kindergarten through 8. She then taught at Springville Schools for almost 40 years. Pat was very proud to have taught three generations of students. She was a charter member of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection where she attended the women’s bible study. Pat also was a member of the Paralta Embroidery Club and the Red Hat Society. She volunteered at Mission of Hope, Springville Public Library, and the Springville Historical Society. Pat was glamorous in her early years with her cat eye sunglasses and red lipstick. She was an ambivalent pet parent to dogs, cats, hamsters and an “unapproved” monkey. Pat was very proud that she knew how to crank a Model T. She and Bob enjoyed many winters in Arizona. She is survived and lovingly remembered by her son, Roger (Lisa) Rose of Springville; daughters, Lori (Doug) Hutchison of Santa Rosa, California and Barbara (Dan) Colby of Marion; grandsons, Chris (Jen) Colby, Bob Colby, Justin (Melissa) Rose, Brian (Jessica) Rose, and Roman Hutchison; great-granddaughters, Emma Colby and Harlow Rose; sisters-in-law, Mary (Larry) Stoecker and Mary Rose; and numerous nieces and nephews. Pat was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bob; father-in-law and mother-in-law, George and Ethyl Rose; and siblings, Les Peters and Vera Roe; and a sister-in-law and brother-in-law. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Pat’s memory may be directed to the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marion, Springville Library, Springville Fire Department, or Springville American Legion Hall.
