Rose and Jewell owned and operated Thomas & Son Greenhouses and Nursery in Chesterland, Ohio for many years. Rose loved flowers - especially yellow roses. She often gifted customers with extra plants. She loved to give gifts to others - baked goods, carefully-selected books, but especially a welcoming smile. She truly embodied the gift of hospitality. She had a wonderful sense of humor.
Rose and Jewell enjoyed touring in their classic automobiles, and also taking trips in their motor home.
Rose will be most remembered for freely offering love and friendship to all. Her children adore her.
