Rose Mae Lee was born Oct. 29, 1924 in Crescent, the daughter of Harry and Irene (Ruby) Lee. She attended country school in Crescent.

On May 3, 1945, Rose was united in marriage to Eldon Angeroth in Council Bluffs. They lived in Fort Worth, Texas from May to December, while Eldon worked with the B24. This union was blessed with three children: Sharon, Sandy and Eldon Jr.

Upon returning from Texas, they began farming in the Crescent area. This was shortened due to being flooded out, and the family moved north of Sac City at the end of 1947.

Rose enjoyed camping and traveling. In 1974, Rose and Eldon began traveling during the winter to Texas and in 1975, changed their travel to Arizona. This winter travel continued for 32 years. They traveled to every state in the union, including Alaska and Hawaii; all the Canadian provinces; Mexico; and to Europe (two times).

Rose loved her garden, especially her flowers. She was known for her wonderful pies and had an immense collection of cook books. Rose enjoyed garage sales and the pursuit of lost treasures. She loved socializing over a hot cup of coffee with family and friends.

Those left to cherish Rose's memory include her children: Sharon (Charles) Eddy of Newell; Sandy (Norm) Knoke of Storm Lake; Eldon Jr. (Lynn) Angeroth of Early; grandchildren: Rob (Julie) Seil of Cincinnati, Ohio; Mark (Mary Luz) Seil of San Francisco, Calif.; Lori (Rodney) Schakel of Monroe; Robin (Paul) Knutson of Storm Lake; Cory (Jacque) Angeroth of Salt Lake City, Utah; Kari (Gilbert) Montano and Melissa Angeroth, all of Chandler, Ariz.; great grandchildren: Courtney and Caitlyn Seil, Kacie, Kayla and Kolby Schakel, Logan and Jordyn Borchardt, Carson and Catherine Angeroth, Matthew and Lexi Montano, and Madison Rose Angeroth; brothers: Marvin (Jo) Lee of Council Bluffs; Byron Lee of Council Bluffs; sister, Shirley Watts of Council Bluffs; numerous nieces and nephews; extended family and many friends.
