Obituary for Rosemary "Rose" Lewis

Rose Lewis, born August 26, 1972 in Wurzburg, Germany to Al and Kathleen Johnson, passed away suddenly Friday, August 23, 2019.

She was married to the love of her life, Phil Conroy. Together they had sons, Miah Meixner, Nick Johnson, Aaron (Brittany) Lewis, and Tony (Meghanne) and Kyle (Rosa) Conroy. They, along with her three dog-children, Boston, Chesney and Buster were her “wolfpack”. She was a dedicated, loving and doting mother and grandma to Jazmine and Tucker.

Rose was lucky enough to be included in many families. Raised outside Boston, her Massachusetts family included her best friend of 25 years Rachel “Button Rae” Moore and her husband Wayne along with their children Robbie, Kodie, Kerstine “CJ”, Little Wayne III, Kelsie, Toby, Dakota and Kydynce Rae.

She was then adopted in Nebraska by Jim and Toni Burns and had two brothers, Johnny “Jon” and Terry.

Rose was half Hawaiian and half German. She worked at Cabela’s and was only one short semester away from completing her degree which was an enormous accomplishment and a great sense of pride for her. Rose made everyone and everything better. Her infectious laugh was contagious to all those lucky enough to know her.

She was a cancer survivor and recently got a “Faith” tattoo inked to recognize her strength and journey.

Rose and Phil were proud members of no-shoes nation, they loved to cruise, 4-wheel and show their jeeps at car shows and traveling. Rose loved hockey and cherished her time in the sun, sand and beaches!

She is survived by her husband, sons, parents, grandchildren, brothers, nieces and nephews, God-daughter Elizabeth Gregg and her son Tallan (Phil’s birthday buddy), extended family and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her mother’s Kathleen and Toni.

Memorials to the family for future designation.
