He preceded her in death on Sept. 8, 1999.

She also leaves to cherish her memory 6 grandchildren: Jonathan (Trudy) Kamler, Jessica (Chris) Fiorelli, Danielle Dobish, Nathan Kamler, Michael (Brianna) Kamler, Ashley Kamler and 1 great grandchild Tristan Dobish. Rose received all her sacraments at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Exeter. She attended Exeter Public School and was a 1949 graduate of Exeter High School. As a young girl she worked at the soda fountain at Phelps Drug Store and also as a waitress and did babysitting. When she was a Junior in High School she worked at the telephone company as a switchboard operator, later transferring to Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph. Six months after she and Cletus were married, he was drafted into the Army where he served for two years. During his service, Rose traveled with him to Basic Training then got a job with Russell Stover’s Candy factory in Lincoln while he was overseas. Upon Cletus’ returned from the Army in 1953, the two returned to the farm in Shickley where they were members of St. Mary’s Church. Cletus and Rose were later blessed with four sons. The family enjoyed working together and creating lifelong memories on the farm north of Shickley until 1987, when they moved to Loup City. It was then that she began doing childcare in her home, which she did until the Spring of 2014. Over the years she took care of more than 70 children. She was a member of St. Josaphat's Catholic Church and its Council of Catholic Women. Rose enjoyed babies and children and watching them grow up and see their accomplishments. In addition to her husband, Cletus, she was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Delores McGaughey; brothers, Leo “Dutch”, Bernard, Richard, Raymond and Thomas Erdkamp; sisters-in-law and spouses, Jeneane and Marlin Bahe and John Aksentowitz; and a nephew, James Holmes. In lieu of flowers and plants, memorials are suggested to the family's choice.
