Rose Ellen Freeman

September 2, 1933 — April 23, 2024


Rose E. Freeman passed away on April 23, 2024. She died of natural causes at the age of 90 yrs. Rose was born in Butte, MT. on September 2, 1933, to Herbert G. and Olive G. Peterson. 

She grew up in Ronan, MT, but left shortly after graduating from high school to join the Women Army Corps where she served with pride. She left the WACs to marry Ancil E. Freeman and continued her adventures by seeing the world as an army wife, following him to Europe and all over the USA. The couple finally returned to Montana to raise their children. 

She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, an infant daughter Kathleen Freeman, sister Florence Kneebone, and brother William Peterson.

Rose is survived by her daughter Melody J. Sutton (Earl), son Michael G. Freeman (Ileen), son William G. Freeman (Donna) and much-loved grandchildren Cassidy, Caitlin, Julie, Laura, Taylor, and great-grandchildren, Kallianne and Jensen.  She also lives on in the memories of the many friends she touched along the way with her kindness, self-sacrifice, and genuine love.

Mom did not desire funeral services and we will honor that request. She left us all with our own special memories. The support, the laughter, yes, even the tears. She was the Rose in our family garden.
