Mildred Rose Obituary

Mildred (Millie) Rose, 79 of Jackson, passed away Sunday, October 15, 2023.

She was born January 21, 1944, in Memphis, Tennessee, to Willie Bob and Lila Goodwin.

Millie married Claude Rose on September 26, 1974, in Marks, Mississippi. Claude knew right away that he had married his forever sweetheart.

Claude and Millie made many friends in all of the places that they lived together – Emporia, Kansas, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Jackson, Mississippi and most recently in Jackson, Missouri.

Millie loved to bake. Her talents in cooking allowed her to also help heal hearts, create friendships and gained her the reputation of making the “World’s Best Carrot Cake” and her red velvet cake was the favorite of many. Her cakes and breads were always among the first to be chosen in the fund-raising raffles for the Jackson Senior Center.

New McKendree United Methodist church was her church home. She was active in Esther Circle and United Methodist Women. She was on the bereavement meal team and volunteered regularly at the SEMO Food Bank. She and Claude enjoyed the close bonds they made in their Sunday School classes throughout the years.

Millie loved to entertain family and friends at their home that was always decorated for the current holiday or season. Guests knew there would be laughter, plenty of good food and more than likely a card game or two. She treasured time spent with her grandchildren more than anything. She always made sure to cook brownies, dream pie and okra because she knew they were their favorites.

Loving survivors include husband, Claude; Children Tim Metcalf, Lisa McEachern (Mark) and Mark Rose (Cara); Grandchildren Wyatt Rose, Tate Friedrich, Bella Rose, Andy McEachern and Leah McEachern and numerous nieces and cousins.

She preceded in death by parents, brother Bobby Goodwin, sister-in-law Jane Alice Goodwin and nieces Judy Blackburn and Jane Moore.
