Patricia Lucille “Patsy” Rose (Keto) was born on November 19, 1931, to John and Vera Keto (Rivers) of Minneapolis, MN. She grew up in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood in west Minneapolis and spent summers at the family’s cabin on Lake Sylvia in Annandale. Pat met and married Donald Rose June 30, 1951, in Minneapolis.

Pat was a fearless woman who met any challenge put in front of her. She spent 27 years of her life working for Campbell Marketing in Eden Prairie as an Executive Sales Administrator. Her friends and colleagues at Campbell Marketing described her as the “glue that held the organization together.” She was a trusted, dependable “go to” person that helped make things happen. When she retired in 1996, Lake Sylvia became her home. It was her favorite spot of all! It gave her great joy to spend time there with family, friends, and anyone else that came to visit. She lived a full life and left this world much better than she found it. We will miss her dearly!

Patricia is survived by her loving family: children, Tom (Mimi) Rose of Ruskin, FL, Jim (Diane) Rose of Chaska, MN, Annie Rose of South Haven, MN, grandchildren, Julia Rose (Kenny Anderson), Jaclyn Thorston, Emily Rose, Angela Rose, James Patrick’s fiancé Stella Simons siblings, Shirley (Norb) Woitas of Annandale, MN, Janet Sarles of Scroggins, TX, Sandra Meehan of East Hampton, NY.

She is preceded in death by husband, Donald A., parents, John and Vera Keto, brother, Robert Keto, and grandson, James Patrick Rose.

Pallbearers will be James D. Rose, Annie Rose, Thomas Rose, Jaclyn Thorston, George Balch, and Kenny Anderson.

    My deepest sympathy at the loss of such a loving, caring and inspiring person. I worked with Patsy at Campbell Marketing in the 80’s and even went to the lake home for a weekend party. She will truly be missed. My sympathies to the family.
