Jessie Shafer Rose

Friday, October 26, 2018

Jessie Shafer Rose passed away on Oct. 23, 2018, surrounded by family.

Jessie was one of eight children born to James and Bertha Shafer on March 13, 1928, in Montevallo, Mo. She graduated in 1946 from Sheldon High School in Sheldon, Mo.

In 1948, Jessie married William Lipscomb. They resided in Eureka, Kan., and were blessed with four children, Danny, Cindy, Jacque and Sandra.

Jessie’s passion in life, other than her family, was the game of golf. She won multiple tournaments and club championships in every club she belonged to but one. Jessie’s love for golf has been passed down three generations.

In 1983, Jessie married Rex Rose. She spent 34 years with Rex in Augusta, Kan., until his passing in December of 2017. As much as Jessie tried to get Rex to play golf, his love for bowling was greater. Jessie continued to play golf, mostly with her daughters, but took up bowling with the same enthusiasm.

Jessie will be remembered for her love of family and life. She loved music and dancing and taught her children and grandchildren many card and board games. Jessie’s endless one liners will live on in her family and with whomever knew her well.

Survivors include, son, Danny (Kathleen) Lipscomb, Wichita, Kan.; daughters, Cindy (Steve) Schneider, Norman, Okla., Jacque (Steve) Sundgren, Rosalia, Kan., and Sandra Emlet, Navarre, Fla.; eight grandchildren, Jarod, Eric, Justin and Grant Cowdin, Jamie (Sundgren) Swafford, Autumn and Nash Lipscomb and Tylyn Emlet; four great-grandchildren, Jaxon, Koleson and Greyson Swafford and Lyla Cowdin; and one sister, Ingaby Kelley.

Jessie was preceded in death by her husband, Rex Rose; parents, James and Bertha Shafer; siblings, Joe Shafer, Glen Shafer, Wayne Shafer, Denzel Shafer, Opal Smith, and Francis Farthing; and granddaughter, Jenny Sundgren.

Jessie’s celebration of life will continue in the hearts of family and everyone she touched. Private family arrangements are pending. Services in care of the John M. Ireland Funeral Home and Chapel, Moore, Okla.
