Rose M. Thompson
Rose, Rosie, Mom, Baby Sis, Slinky T, Mama Rose, Lil' Rosie, Bookend, and Auntie Rosie are names she answered to; but the title she was most proud of was Nana. Being a Grandmother was a beloved mission for her.
Born in the Yesler Terrace and raised on Capitol Hill Rose attended Stevens Elementary, Meany Middle, and Garfield High Schools, graduating in 1981.
She began her work career at Tele-Check and retired in 2020 after 30 plus years at Costco Wholesale in its Corporate Office.
Rosie knew she was a child of God. As a young woman she was a member of Holgate Church and later became a member of Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of HB Sampson, where she held multiple leadership positions.
Rose was blessed with a beautiful smile, a heart to match, and the ability to positively affect the lives of her family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. She will be thought of lovingly and truly be missed.
