In memory of
Maureen L. Patrick-Rose
Maureen L. Patrick-Rose
April 27, 1950 - Oct. 10, 2019
Maureen L. Patrick-Rose passed away Oct. 10, 2019. She was 69 years old. Maureen passed from complications related to dementia, Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD).
She was born in Weiser, Idaho and raised in Redmond, Ore. She started her adult life in Eugene, Ore., where she raised her family and then moved to Portland, where she lived her later life.
Maureen graduated from Redmond High School in 1968.
She worked several years at Eugene School District in their transportation and facilities departments.
She spent 15+ years driving for Tri-Met and retired in 2013.
Maureen was far more than the statistics just shared. She was a tremendously kind and loving woman with an immeasurable heart for family and friends. Many would say, "Maureen is just so positive." The world was a brighter place with her smile.
Music was always a part of Maureen's life from playing saxophone and piano to singing in a women's choir. She delighted in going to concerts including, among others, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and even Elvis Presley in 1976 where she caught his scarf. With music came dance. Maureen loved to dance whether as a teenager listening to rock and roll or learning ballroom dancing in her later years.
At 50, Maureen was able to pursue her desire to travel. With her husband Scott, she traveled to many places in Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii. She also traveled throughout the country, including a month-long trip on Route 66. She loved people and experiences and will be missed by those that knew her best.
She is survived by her mother, Doreen Hofstetter; her husband, Scott Rose; her two children from her first marriage, Cari Hill with her husband, Daniel and Dene Brandsma with his wife, Andrea; her five grandchildren, Brent, Kaitlin, Matthew, Sophia and Melanie; and two step-grandchildren, Shane and Madison. She was preceded far too early by her father, Earl Patrick; and brother, Steve Patrick, both of which weighed heavily on her heart.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019, at the Ainsworth House, 19130 Lot Whitcomb Dr., Oregon City, OR 97045. Maureen will be inurned at Rest-Haven Memorial Park in Eugene, Ore.
