Rose was born April 21, 1959 in Shreveport, La. After raising her family, Rose obtained her LVN degree and continued to expand her skills and knowledge until cancer finally ended her pursuits. Rose and her fiancÚ, Dr. Wiman, worked together at North Texas State Hospital, Vernon, Tx. in the forensic unit. Though the work was hard and sometimes dangerous, Rose enjoyed her patients.
