Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Roselie M. "Rose" Beemer, age  85, of Gowen, passed away Thursday evening, August 6, 2015 at her home under the loving care of her family and Gentiva Hospice.  The daughter of George & Hattie (Sharp) Badge, she was born on June 19, 1930 in Six Lakes.            

On Feb. 27, 1960, in Greenville, she married Garold Dale Beemer and together they raised six children and enjoyed 45 years of marriage until Dale passed away on July 6, 2005.  She was also preceded in death by her parents;  a son, George Cox;  a son-in-law, Pat Cooper;  a brother, Donald Badge;  and four sisters, Virginia McGuire, Peg Cogswell, Betty Beemer, and Marie "Mert" Beemer.  

Rose also worked outside the home and retired from the former Gibson Refrigerator Company.  She enjoyed crocheting and was a tremendous fan of the Detroit Tigers  —  almost never missing a ball game.  Her family will always remember her ability to share a funny saying or story and put a smile on your face.

Surviving are four sons, Robert & Terri Cox of Wiedman, Arthur & Maggie Cox, Dennis & Peggy Cox, David & Karen Beemer, all of Gowen;  a daughter, Marjean Cooper of Greenville;  a brother, Robert & Noreen Badge of Trufant;  four sisters, Arlene Kohn of Greenville, Carol Cogswell of Six Lakes, Diane & Richard McGuire of Six Lakes, and Ruth & Clare Johnston of Trufant; siblings-in-law, Jake & Barb Beemer, Will & Deb Beemer, Goldie Merrick, and Sherry Rish;  twenty-two grandchildren including a special great-granddaughter, Ashley;  many great grandchildren and one great-great grandson;  a special nephew, Gordon Cox, and many, many other beloved nieces and nephews.

The family invites you to join them in a time of food, fellowship, and memories from 2-4 p.m. on Friday, August 14, 2015 at the Spencer Township Hall, 14960 Meddler Avenue north of 18 Mile Road, near Lincoln Lake. Honoring Rose's wishes, cremation has taken place and final interment will be at Little Denmark Cemetery, Gowen.
