Gladys Ann Rose

Ms. Gladys Ann Rose, 68, died Monday, Feb. 17, 2020, at Kate B. Reynolds Hospice House in Winston-Salem.

She was born Jan. 29, 1952, in Rowan County to the late James Walter “Tom” Rose Sr. and Gladys Elizabeth Scott Rose. She was a member Mainville AME Zion Church in Mocksville. She was a hard worker known to say, “if it was easy, everybody would do it.” Her favorite pastimes were fishing, cooking and teaching others how to cook. She was a loving and giving person who would give you her last dollar. She had a deep affection for everyone, was a mother to all and would quickly put you back in your place.
