Rosaline F. Unrein

April 2, 1938 — September 21, 2021

Rosaline Frances “Rose” Unrein, 83, of Bennett, CO, passed away September 21, 2021. Rose was born on April 2, 1938 in Pfeifer, KS, the daughter of Anthony and Regina Jacobs. She had two brothers and ten sisters, all who were an important part of her life. Rose married Elmer Unrein on August 31, 1955 in Pfeifer, KS. They moved to Colorado the following year, raising their family in the Denver area. They shared 66 years of marriage, and their family was the center of Rose’s life. Rose had room in her heart for everyone. She formed lasting connections everywhere she went with countless friends, neighbors, and a large extended family. She took the time to truly know each individual person. Rose will be remembered for her sense of humor, her hospitality, and generosity. She made hundreds of patchwork quilts as gifts of her love. On several occasions, she and Elmer took their young grandchildren to hand out sack lunches, gloves and stockings to homeless people on the streets of Denver. A woman of faith, Rose’s compassion was without limits. Rose is survived by her dear husband Elmer; a son Neil (Susan) Unrein of Gorham, KS; a son Dean Unrein of Strasburg, CO; a daughter Allisa (Scott) Franklin of Strasburg, CO; a sister Darlene Sander of Hays, KS; a sister Isabelle Schuckman of Aurora, CO; a sister Carol Moeder of Arvada, CO; a brother-in-law Norman Unrein of Portland, OR; a sister-in-law Eleanor (Unrein) Taylor of Wichita, KS; and a sister-in-law Dolores (Unrein) Giebler of Wheat Ridge, CO. She is also survived by 15 grandchildren: Andrew Unrein, Adam Unrein, Ashley Lara, Rick Unrein, John Darbonne, Tiffani Duffy, Lauren Hill, Kaleb Unrein, Katie Franklin, T.J. Franklin, Alaina Franklin, Sarah Riley, Joni Nicks, Talia Wilson, and Amber Evans; as well as 27 great-grandchildren and nearly 100 nieces and nephews. She is irreplaceable and will be sorely missed by the entire family. Rose was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved son Eric who passed one month before, and her siblings Lucille Dreher, Marvin Jacobs, Elsie Stegman, Eva Jacobs, Dolores Unrein, Wayne Jacobs, Wilma Kuhn, Theresa Bieker, and Cecelia Jacobs.
