CARBONVILLE - A beautiful light in our lives dimmed today, but the sun and stars will now shine brighter forever. Today, Sept. 10, 2008, our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Rose Marie Jaramillo, passed away surrounded by her loving family.
She was born March 3, 1933 in Idaho Springs, Colo., to Oscar and Edith Wright Johnson. She met the love of her life, Antonio (Buddy) Jaramillo, and they were married April 9, 1949. Their love and devotion to each other were unparalleled and inspirational.
Together they raised three amazing children, Cindy (Frank) Pero, Toni (Bert) Jeanselme and Terry (Jane) Jaramillo. They also have two "kids" Richard and Lynne Rudman.
Mom's love for her family was boundless and we were all her greatest joy. She was a great example of strength, endurance and perseverance to all who knew her. No matter what, she was always "fine."
Mom was strong-willed and determined to the end.
Mom was famous for her beautiful rose garden. Christmas was her favorite time of year. Many of our fondest memories will be of us gathered in her house for her homemade chili and decorating the tree.
Mom loved camping in Huntington Canyon and the desert. She'd always say she "wasn't goin' next time," but she was always there.
Rose was an immaculate housekeeper; a germ could no way survive. But in her house, you were always home.
Mom loved watching NASCAR and was Dale Earnhart's biggest fan. She then watched "Little E" every weekend.
Mom leaves behind a great legacy and testament to her life, her husband and children; grandchildren, Amie (Tory) Christiansen, Andy (Jessica) Jeanselme, Brett Jeanselme, Melissa (Brad) Heiner, Kristy (Hernan) Ortiz, Tiffany (Eddie) Malmgren, Nicholas Rudman and Marissa (DeSean) Lydia; as well as 15 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her sisters, Mabel Donohue and Margie Marshall.
Per mom's request no services will be held. Instead, the family suggests we celebrate her life by sharing memories with each other and reaching out to help someone in need.
The family wishes to thank everyone at Castleview Hospital, UVRMC, Utah Valley Specialty Hospital and Rocky Mountain Hospice for their loving and compassionate care.
Arrangements were entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.
