Rose was born July 22, 1919, in Stockton, Calif. After college she taught briefly in California. Looking for excitement, she moved to Alaska in 1945 to teach elementary school. There she met her husband, Robert Druxman. She was active in the Philanthropic Education Organization and the AARP for many years.
Family members said, "During her many years, she taught most of Juneau's children. She will be sorely missed."
She was preceded in death by her husband in 1966.
She is survived by her sister, Pat Siebert; nephews, Mike King and Tom King; and nieces, Sandy King and Patty King.
Her ashes will be buried in the family plot in Winton, Calif., as well as scattered in Scotland.
