Rose and Jewell owned and operated Thomas & Son Greenhouses & Nursery in Chesterland, Ohio for many years. Rose loved flowers–especially yellow roses. She often gifted customers with extra plants. She loved to give gifts to others–baked goods, carefully-selected books, but especially a welcoming smile. She truly embodied the gift of hospitality. She had a wonderful sense of humor.
