Elizabeth Joanna Rose

Elizabeth Joanna Rose was born in August 1964 in Flagstaff, Arizona to Nancy and Alton Woolf. Not long after having been born Elizabeth (Beth) moved with her family to Abilene, home of her father's family.

A graduate of Jim Ned High School in Lawn, Texas, Beth attended Oklahoma State College in Altus, Oklahoma.

In 1984 Beth met and married the love of her life, Tom Rose, here in Abilene. Together Beth and Tom built a life based on faith and service to their community for 34 years. It was this commitment to faith that led Beth and Tom to foster 41 children in addition to the 2 children they already had. Eventually Beth and Tom adopted 17 of those foster children. Beth's children include Ashley, April, Jasmin, Katelyn, Nikki, Hannah, Michelle, Izzy, Brittany, Connie, Randall, Sara, Bobby, Jake, Billy, Mary, Ava, Pete, and John.
