Rose was born on June 16, 1924 in Sabetha, KS to Fredrick and Rosina (Tinsley) Wrightman. She graduated from The University of Minnesota in 1945 with a degree in Nursing. This was a perfect career as Rose loved taking care of others. She married Stephen Treacy Sr., on October 9th, 1948 in Sabetha, KS. They were able to celebrate 51 years together before her beloved husband passed in 2000.
Her family remembers Rose as a mother and grandmother who never knew a stranger and only saw the good in everyone she met. Rose fulfilled her desire to help others by volunteering at Odyssey Hospice for 15 years and was recognized as a Community of Hearts Award Finalist for her efforts as a volunteer. Her positive outlook on life was contagious and inspired all of those lucky enough to know her. Despite her age, Rose's energy had her always looking for an adventure as evidenced by her willingness to go tubing at age 89! We will always embrace her love of life and the legacy she leaves.
