Jeanne Sue Rose

- May 28, 2020

Jeanne Sue Rose was born to Earl and Maxine (Joy) Rose on March 8, 1960, in Chamberlain, SD. She was raised in Chamberlain, SD, with two brothers, Jerry and Jay Rose. The family moved and then lived in Mobridge from 1968-1973, and then in 1973, they moved to Sturgis. Jeanne graduated from Sturgis and went onto Madison to go to college at SDSU from 1979-1981.

     One of her big thrills in life is that she got to go visit Paris and England.  Jeanne was a nanny in Sturgis for a couple of years. She later taught and owned her own preschool in her home and in May of 1984, she met the love of her life, Dick Nusom and they were married October 13, 1984, in Sturgis.  They moved to Colorado and Jeanne worked for several preschools and day cares.  In 1993, they moved to Sturgis to be closer to her family.  She worked for a while at a preschool in Rapid City and in the office of Rose’s Sanitation, which her parents owned. Jeanne was a cat person and loved her kitty cats, and she also loved country music.  Jeanne fought cancer from 2013-2020 off and on, and the cancer finally won.
