Rose Marie Hughes Blake, 84, Veyo, Utah, passed away on November 15, 2020 at her home with her daughter, Tammy by her side.
She was born August 10, 1936 to Elmer and Emily Hughes. She grew up in Mesquite, NV with her five brothers and sisters.
Rosie married Lowell C. Blake on February 18, 1955. In 1968, Lowell and Rosie were proud to call Veyo Utah their home. They were blessed to be the parents of two children. Shawn, who passed away when he was only 3 months old, and Tammy Jo, who they dearly loved.
Rosie was a beautiful, and humble pianist. She loved hunting arrowheads, Dutch Oven Cooking over an open fire, deer hunting, eating Arby's Sandwhiches, and spending time with family and friends.
Rosie was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She loved her Savior, Jesus Christ. She would often be heard talking of her appreciation of the Atonement, and how Jesus Christ not only died for her sins, but for all those people that she knew and loved.
Rosie waited many years to be able to go to the St George Temple. She truly enjoyed her time there. Rosie had a very big heart. Anyone who met her felt of her love. She truly was one of a kind, and will be missed by many.
