Rose Anne Dunworth Nohe, daughter of Rose and John Dunworth died on April 30, 2024 of cancer and Alzheimer’s. She was predeceased by brothers Jack and Bob. Rose was cared for at the end of her life by husband, Kenneth Nohe.

Rose Anne Dunworth was born on May 13, 1943 in Baltimore, MD, the first girl after her three brothers, Bob, Mike, and Jack. She was quickly followed by Betty, Thomas, Cathy, David, and Joseph. Her role of oldest daughter in a family of 9 children defined much of her character, a loving, hard-working, and opinionated leader.

Rose attended St. Michael’s and St. Stephen’s. She married at 18, worked to support her husband through college, and fondly remembered the formality of wearing white gloves to her first job. Rose and Ken started a family with the birth of daughter, Catherine, and son, Ken.

Rose’s motto was, “When you wake up, get up. When you get up, do something.” She lived that motto with her hard work and devotion to her family and career. At a time when women faced innumerable obstacles in the corporate world, Rose advanced to vice president at Blue Cross and Blue Shield, completing college classes in the evening.

Rose was thrilled to become “Granny Rose” with the adoption of Tessa Rose. Dauntless, she traveled to China for her granddaughter’s, Claire’s, adoption. She was so honored to be included in her grandson’s, Stuart’s, birth. Her youngest granddaughter, Charlotte Rose, always held a special place in her heart.

Rose had a sense of adventure. She loved traveling, whether it was an international journey or taking a quiet country road to see where it would lead. Rose achieved her dream of living by the ocean, retiring to Palm Coast, Florida. She loved her beautiful condo & her view of the ocean, and she built a home away from home for her children and grandchildren, orchestrating beautiful holidays and vacations for her family.

Rose found joy in her sunrises on the ocean, sunsets on the intracoastal, and escapades with her sister and partner-in-condo-adventures, Elizabeth Crouse. Her years in Palm Coast were filled with family, friends, children, grandchildren, laughter, tea, wine, and memories, only made better when her youngest sister, Cathy Sheroke, was able to join.

Rose enjoyed her friends in Palm Coast, collected countless bags of trash to keep A1A & the beach clean, and valued her volunteer work, gathering and organizing food at the food pantry.

Rose is lovingly remembered and missed by family and friends. She is survived by Ken Nohe, daughter, Catherine (Ann) Berns, Claire Berns, and Tessa Rose Berns. Son, Ken Nohe (Lisa), Stuart, and Charlotte Rose. Sister, Elizabeth (Rick) Crouse, Rick, & Lynnell Gravelle and family. Sister, Cathy (Chuck) Sheroke & Anna Rose and family. She is also survived by brothers Michael, Thomas, David, Joseph, and their families & the families of her brothers, Bob & Jack.
