ANTWERP – Beverly Jean (Eibling) Rose, 68, of Antwerp, passed on to her heavenly home on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017.

Bev devoted her time and energy to taking care of her husband of nearly 50 years, John “Bill” and her family. Bev always attended every event of her grandkids that she could, whether it was a concert, grandparent’s day program or basketball game.

Bev was a true Jeff Gordon fan for years. She even had #24 on her own car and wheelchair.

Bev was a part of the Payne Church of Christ family. She was known for her card ministry. You could always count on getting a card from her for your birthday, anniversary or get-well card.

Bev will be deeply missed by her loving husband, John “Bill” Rose; daughters, Tianne (Tad) Pendergrast of Antwerp and Michelle (Michael) Smith of Fort Wayne; and grandchildren, Dustin, Chris and Marissa Smith and Brandon and Jon Pendergrast.

Bev was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Margaret (Boyd) Eibling; daughter, Laurie Rose; and brother, Dennis Eibling.

She will be laid to rest in a private ceremony at Wiltsie Cemetery, Payne according to her wishes. Dooley Funeral Home, Antwerp, is in charge of arrangements.

Please consider a donation in her memory to the American Diabetes Association, PO Box 11454, Alexandria, VA 22312 or the Payne Church of Christ, PO Box 373, Payne OH 45880.
