1945 Obituary for Rose Ellen Wilson

Note: Maria Vasichek received this 1945 obituary of Ensign Rose Ellen Wilson from Rose's cousin Jim Wilson, of Santa Barbara, CA.  The following is some information that Jim shared about his cousin's life. 

Rose Ellen Wilson was born on November 14, 1920.  The only child of Chester and Gladys Wilson.  She graduated from college in 1942.  Gladys died in 1944.  At her funeral Rose Ellen was so taken by the minister she told him she hoped he would officiate at her funeral, he scoffed at the  very idea, but a year later he did.  When Cousin Jim started college in the mid 1950's Chester gave him Rose Ellen's college text books and slide rule which he used throughout his professional career.  Chester grieved over his daughter's loss for his remaining years.
