Obituary of Rose Marie Devine – Renault Journal, Mason Valley News newspaper

Rose Marie Divine

Rose Marie Devine died peacefully on April 29 after a long battle with aphasia. She was 76 years old.

She was born on February 27, 1946 in Reno, Nevada, to Orval and Marie Grande. She married her longtime love, Denise Devine, in December 1970.

Rose loved her family and friends very much. Known for throwing the best parties, every event always makes it extra special. Her family jokingly called Martha Stewart 2.0, where she can cook, bake, sew, paint and do just about anything perfectly. She was generous in many ways, often helping others improve the details of weddings and baby showers, but she was also committed to philanthropic work with several organizations, including the Soroptimist Club of Northern Nevada and the Nevada Women’s Trust, and served on the financial board with her church, Mrs. ice. She loved helping her community, especially anything that supported women.

After a prosperous banking career, Rose retired from the First Independent Bank of Nevada, where she held the position of Senior Vice President. She previously worked for First National Bank, Security Bank, Bank of America, and Pioneer Citizens Bank. She often commented on how much she enjoyed her career as well as the people she worked with, many of whom became dear friends, as well as the countless clients she felt privileged to serve and move forward with forming special relationships with. Most people who know Rose would agree that she has a wonderful zest for life, from the elegant way she dresses to her fiery red hair. Those who were lucky enough to know her loved her. She loved them again. With a heavy but grateful heart we come together to celebrate the splendor that was Rose.

Rose is survived by her loving husband Denise. her daughters and son-in-law Danielle and David, Brandi and Bob, Tamera and Steve, Diana and Jim; her grandchildren Michael, Ava, Jessica, Tara, and Rachel; Five great-grandchildren. Brothers Charles and Larry. and sister-in-law and best friend, Luann. Her daughter Jill passed away in 2016. She loved them all deeply, touching their hearts.

Please join us to celebrate her life on Tuesday, May 31, at 11 a.m. Mass at Our Lady of Snow Church, 1138 Wright Street, in Reno. Lunch in the parish hall. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family is kindly asking you to make a donation to the Nevada Womensfund,
