The couple lived near Clyde, ND until 1950 when they moved to the farm near Sarles, ND. where they worked on the family farm and raised their family. They retired from farming in 1979 and moved to Fargo in 1980 when they became members of Nativity Catholic Church in Fargo. They also began caretaking for an apartment building in Fargo until 1986.

    To the Family of Rose:
    My deepest sympathy to all. I have many fond memories of Rose when I would spend time in the summers with Jean. Rose was a very neat lady. I remember the old farmhouse very well, I will always remember you had a set of colored aluminum drinking glasses that I thought were real special. Funny how some things just stick with you.
    May your memories support you at this time and God be with you.
    Sorry I couldnt make it to the funeral, but you were all in my thoughts.

    Milwaukee WiDear Jeanne and Family,
    I just found out about your loss from Carol (she forgot to call me) and please accept my sympathies for all of your family. I know how hard it is to see a loved one leave us. But, like my mother, she was ready to go and she is with our Lord. We all have prayer warriors up there looking after us.

    Hamden CTDear Kingzett Family,
    You all have our deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother. About a month ago her sister Frances died, my mom. They were close as sisters, strong women, great wives and moms. We were all truly blessed. Take care and remember the good times and how we have all come to be who we are today because of them. God bless you all.

    Words cannot describe what a wonderful person Rose was. Her caring and compassionate demeanor was one of her greatest traits. Some of my fondiest childhood memories are those spending time with the Kingzetts at their family farm. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family and cherish those precious memories.

    Sedalia MissouriI couldn’t have asked for a better aunt — and Godmother — than Rose. She was the best! I will always remember staying with her and Alvin on the farm in the summer and her great cinnamon rolls and fudge! She used to treat me by taking me to the grocery store in Sarles and letting me buy whatever breakfast cereal I wanted. Usually, it was Capt. Crunch (and she’d have to tell me to chew a little quieter at the breakfast table!). Aunt Rose was a great conversationalist and was always so in tune with what was happening in the world. She kept track of me, too, and always was anxious to hear how my family was doing! She will be greatly missed.

    Waynesville NCWhat a beautiful picture of Aunt Rose, a woman I was blessed to have as an aunt. I know someday that when I transition home, she’ll be waiting, with cinnamon rolls in the oven and the coffee pot on.
