She was born on Friday, March 25, 1938, in Detroit, Michigan; the daughter of Giacomo and Antoinette (nee Guerra) Ciolli. Rose was a member of the Bethel Missionary Baptist church in Sterling Heights, Michigan. She enjoyed going to church and listening to gospel music. She loved to play Yahtzee and to play cards, especially pinnocle, and in her younger years she loved to go bowling. She had a passion for garage sales and family gatherings when the family would come by the house and decorate for Christmas. While her husband was still alive, they were snowbirds and retreated to Florida for the winter.
