1923 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
MERRY ROSE Merry Rose passed away November 19, 2017, in her sleep, in Las Vegas. She was born Mary Opal Graham July 10, 1923, in Republic, Washington, the eldest child of Paul and Roxie Graham. After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, she settled in Seattle, Washington, where she married and had four children. She was very proud of her role as a mother. She spent many years traveling up and down the west coast to attend the various events in her children's lives. Always up for a road trip, her travels helped to make a full and interesting life. After she became an empty nester, Merry went back to school and received her degree in accounting. Merry called many places home throughout her life and the last being Las Vegas. Her favorite place on Earth, however, was Yosemite Valley. She said that if she had to spend eternity on Earth, let it be in Yosemite. She is survived by her two sons, Allan and Ray; daughter, Dawn; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Burial will be private at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Boulder City. Celebration of life for Merry will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, January 25, at Ichabods, 3300 E. Flamingo Road. We look forward to friends and family stopping by for a final toast.
