Feb. 1, 1936 — Nov. 30, 2010
Rose attended St. Mary of Lourdes Catholic Church in Belleville. She loved to knit, crochet and birdwatch in the backyard. She loved her grandchildren more than anything; she loved to recall their funny phrases, which brought her much joy and laughter.
Rose is survived by her son, Bruce Clifton of California; daughter, Rena (Tim) Askey of Belleville; five grandchildren, Terry, Adam and Hayden Askey and Andrew and Megan Clifton; a brother, Reno Zandonella; and sisters, Jean Sales and Teresa Klare, all of California. She was preceded in death by her parents; a son, Louis Clifton; and a brother, John Zandonella.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at the Becker-Beal Funeral Home, 109 Greenway Cross in Belleville, Wis., with a time of gathering from 12 noon until the time of service. A memorial fund has been established.
