Rose moved to Quincy, in her adult life and worked for many years as a medical records clerk at Quincy Hospital.

A single mother, she was very independent. She was a favorite “mom” of her daughter’s friends, often being called the “cool” mom. She loved children and animals, both which always brought a smile to her face.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Joseph and Anthony Scudere, and her sisters, Carmie Scudere and Mary Phelps.
