Rose L. Angood, age 92, passed away peacefully at Settlers Ridge Care Home on March 23, 2019, following recent strokes and other health challenges. Rose was born on March 5, 1927 in Stafford, Kansas. Rose lived most of her life in Pratt, Kansas – which she considered home. She was a long time member of the First United Methodist Church in Pratt. Rose graduated from Pratt High School in 1945 - the class that named their yearbook The Mirror. They were the generation who endured the great depression and graduated at the end of World War II. A class that knew sacrifice, a great love for others and had experienced the meaning of life. Rose once danced with Lawrence Welk and every Saturday her TV was tuned in to his show. Rose had a great interest in the life and work of Walt Disney. We were blessed to spend a week in Florida visiting the Disney park and she marveled at the work he had done. Rose was a woman with understanding and a great love for all who knew her. Rose worked at The Peoples Bank, was a Mary Kay Consultant, and spent many years at the Pratt Regional Medical Center, in the human resource department. She loved the hospital and medical staff, and her eyes always lit up when she talked about her time working at the hospital. Rose always loved time spent with her grandchildren and great-grand children. The family was blessed to have special times with her most recently at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as she continued living independently just prior to her hospitalization. She was a great baker, making her specialties of pies and cupcakes often.

Rose will be buried in the family plot with her parents, Fred and Mildred King, in Greenlawn Cemetery, Pratt, Kansas. A memorial will be scheduled for a later date.
