August 21, 1936 — February 4, 2019

Mrs. Rose Lee Garey, age 82, of Lesterville (Lopez), PA, passed away on Monday, February 4, 2019, at the Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, PA.


          Rose was born on August 21, 1936, in Oklahoma City, OK, a daughter of the late Brigido R. & Goldie M. Zachary Jimenez. She was raised and attended school in Harrah, OK.


          She married Ronald J. Garey on March 6, 1961, in Shawnee, OK, and they moved to Lopez, PA, in 1977 after retiring from 20 years of service with the US Air Force.


          She was very proud of her Mexican Heritage and found great joy in preparing Mexican dishes for her family. She enjoyed reading and NASCAR, but her greatest joy was her family, especially spending time with her children and grandchildren.


          Jesus said “Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22
