Jean Rose

With her hand being held by family, Jean Rose, 91, died peacefully in her home on January 20, 2022 after a brief illness. She was born in Fond du Lac on July 2, 1930, the daughter of the late Lawrence and Eola (nee Polzean) Bohlman. On September 24, 1949, Jeanette Jewell Bohlman married the love of her life David Rose at Evangelical United Brethren Church in rural Eden.

Jean lived most of her life in the Eden area and graduated from Campbellsport High School in 1948. She woke up every morning with a positive, grateful and joyful spirit. Jean was known for her kindness, generosity and wonderful sense of humor. She loved putting puzzles together and was solving “Wheel of Fortune” puzzles until only a few days before her passing. 

She is survived by her six children Gloria Olson (Randy Lowe), Jim (Mary), Gary, Dan (Shirley), Dale, Steve (Charlene). Also left to cherish her memory are numerous nieces and nephews, 23 grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren, brother-in-law Robert Plummer and sister-in-law Dorothy Bohlman.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband David on October 7, 2019, her parents and her siblings Donald Bohlman, Darlene “Dode” Mielke, Larry Bohlman, Vivian Plummer, Joyce Baumhardt and Barbara Thelen, her brothers-in-law John Thelen, Arthur “Doc” Mielke and Norbert Baumhardt, sister-in-law Loretta Bohlman, daughter-in-law Peggy Rose and granddaughter Sandra Lowe.

A private graveside service will be held at Empire Cemetery and a Celebration of Jean’s Life will be held at a later date.
