Rose M Anglin Fenner was born in Newfoundland, Canada, the daughter of Franics W and Bridget Kiley Anglin and lived in Worcester since 1880. She was a graduate of Classical High and Post Business school.
Rose was married to Charles E Fenner who died in 1956. They lived at 554 Main St for many years. Rose was a member of the Guild of St. Paul's Cathedral. Mrs. Fenner was a switchboard operator at the YWCA for 26 years, retiring in 1961. Previously, she was a switchboard operator for Protective Union Co.
Her niece Joan writes, "Rose and Uncle Fenner were mad about each other, I'll give you an example. Each morning they would come in from their bedroom to the kitchen. In those days the plug for the toaster was part of the light in the ceiling and as Rose was only about 4'11" she would stand on a chair and plug in the toaster. Fenner (she always called him that) would then come in, approach Rose who was standing on the chair, and they would enthusiastically embrace! It was a morning ritual and, as I observed it, it's one of the most powerful memories I have of both of them. By the way, he was six three."
