Helen Louise Rose
« on: January 07, 2019, 01:20:22 PM »
HELEN LOUISE ROSE Helen Louise Rose, age 90, died November 11, 2018. She was born in Helena, Montana September 10, 1928 to Jesse E. Haines and Minnie Haines. She was proceeded in death by her husband of 54 years, Harry, and her twin brothers, Ted and Ed Haines. She is survived by her daughter, Gayle Rose-Wever (Larry), grand-daughter Emily Wever (Rob) and great grand-children Maxon and Samantha Edens. The family moved to California in 1935 due to her father's employment with the Yuba Consolidated Gold Fields Company. Louise remembered the good times she had living in the dredge camp in Snelling, CA. In 1939, the company transferred her father to Durham, to work on the dredge at the Marybill Ranch on Butte Creek. The family decided to settle permanently in Durham, purchasing land on Hanlon Road. The Haines family operated a dairy ranch there for the next 45 years. Louise enjoyed living in Durham, and was active in many school activities, attending dances and basketball games with close friends. She was a good volleyball player and still had a strong arm well into her 80's. She married Harry Rose in 1947, and worked at Chico Pharmacy, and then at the W.T. Grant store in Chico. She became a full time homemaker in her late 20's. During that time, she developed a strong interest in ceramics, first as a hobby and later as a business. She and Harry with Jim and Betty Abbay opened Abbay Ceramics, and later, opened their own ceramic shop, Adobe Ceramics. She was skilled at china painting, especially porcelain bird figures. Her daughter and son-in-law enjoy them to this day. Louise was a devoted gardener, and always maintained a beautiful garden, even when gophers forced her to plant her beloved succulent and cactus in pots. Louise loved to travel, and she and Harry took numerous trips to Alaska, Hong Kong, the Eastern Sea-board, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, often traveling with their close friends, Bud and Maxine Hubbard. Louise was an avid reader and passed that love onto her daughter, along with her love of gardening. She also excelled in the arts of crocheting and sewing, and made most of her daughter's clothes through-out her junior high and high school years. Both Louise and Harry were long standing members of Trinity United Methodist Church and served on many church committees. Louise was very active in the United Women's Methodist group and had a special focus and interest in Methodist mission work. She also felt strongly about alcohol abuse, and was a board member of the local branch of the Women's Christian Temperance Union. During the time her daughter was going through the line in Job's Daughters, Bethel 326, she served as Bethel Guardian. In memory of Louise's love and affection for rescue dogs and cats, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the animal welfare organization of your choice. At her request, Louise's ashes will be scattered on the Haines family homestead in Montana.
