Karin Marie Rose

January 14, 1940 ~ April 20, 2020 (age 80)


Karin Marie (nee Strom) ,Getz Rose, Sun City West, AZ passed away April 20, 2020 at home.   The daughter of Louis and Etta Mae (Whittaker) Strom was born on January 14, 1940 in Aberdeen, WA.  Karin was married twice, first, to Robert Getz who died in 2000.  On May 22, 1981 she married Robert I Rose to which they celebrated 44 years of wonderful companionship.

Karin was preceded in death by two sisters, Aileen and Louise, a stepdaughter from her first marriage, and daughter Lisa L Getz who passed away in 1995.  She is survived by her loving husband Robert I Rose, one stepson from her first marriage, two brothers Kenneth and Tom Strom, and from her second marriage two stepchildren, three step grandchildren and one step great grandchild in Washington State.

Karin retired from the Telephone Company as a Manager in Seattle, WA early as a result of her MS.  Karin enjoyed reading, visiting with family, and shopping on QVC.  She also had a passion for history and spent many years researching genealogy with her husband Bob.  She had a good disposition and sense of humor.

She will be greatly missed by her husband, family, and friends.  I want to thank Hospice of the Valley for the care they gave Karin during her last days.  Karin will be cremated and her remains buried in Hoquiam, Washington.
