The good Lord our God only made one Mary Rose, and we're awful glad He did. Mary Rose Pobst – 81 years, 10 months, and 1 day – of Chaffee, MO, passed away on Monday, May 6, 2013 at her home surrounded by her loving and adoring family. She will be spending Mother's Day in the arms of her heavenly father, as requested by her children.

She was born on Sunday, July 5, 1931 in Cape Girardeau, MO to the late Forrest and Virginia Belk Finch, and married Clifford Pobst on April 2, 1949 in Toledo, Ohio.

Mary Rose was a sweet and dear person to all who were blessed enough to know her. She was full of life and lived it to the fullest. She also enjoyed playing cards, reading books, quilting and doing puzzles. She wrote and published a book of genealogy, Descendants of Joseph Pobst. Mary Rose was an example to all of a true Christian woman – a loyal friend, a devoted mother and grandmother, and an active member of Saint Ambrose Catholic Church in Chaffee, MO.

She is gone from here, but she will always be in our hearts, and we have our memories of her and her words of wisdom to continue to guide us through all the challenges that daily life brings. We will continue to ask all sorts of questions, from where are the cherries in the store, to geography and history questions, to who was this person and how are we related. And we know we'll still get answers.

Loving survivors include her husband Clifford of Chaffee, MO; 6 daughters, Diana Wood (Steve) of Kansas City, MO; Sandy (Eddie) Robinson of Louisville, KY; Vicki (Keith) Keller of Gordonville, MO; Ginny (Ken) Ruiz of Chaffee; Mary (Louis) Evans of Scott City, MO; Lisa (Richard) Loree of Kansas City, MO; and 2 sons, Mark (Tina) Pobst and Shawn (Sherry) Pobst both of Chaffee, MO.

She was Grandma Rosie to 20 grandchildren who worshipped the ground she walked on: Justin and Morgan; Brandon and Matthew; Shannon, Nicki and Tricia; Jeremy and Meagan; Jessica, Ryan and Taylor Rose; Daniel and Shelby; Levon, Addie and Ramsey; Elizabeth, Michael and Patrick.
She was also great Grandma Rosie to 18 adoring great grandchildren: Max and Sophia; Molly, Grady and Hadley; Brett, Lindsy and Keller; Seger and Lucas; Drew, Jake, Gracie Rose, Brooklyn, Braelyn and Zane; Mason and Millie.

She is also survived by her sister, Maxine Pepple of Chaffee, and many friends who will miss her dearly.
Visitation will begin at 4pm on Wednesday May 8 at Amick-Burnett Funeral Chapel in Chaffee, with Rosary at 7pm. Funeral services will be held at 10am on Thursday, May 9 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church with the Reverend Randy Tochtrop as celebrant. Burial will be in St. Ambrose Catholic Cemetery in Chaffee, MO.
