Rose was born in Rochester Vermont on December 17, 1933 to Albert and Elizabeth Guilmette, and spent most of her early life in Vermont. After spending a brief time in Virginia and Connecticut, Rose and her three children relocated to Maine. While in Maine, Rose met and married Herbert Tuttle. Together they provided a loving home to Rose’s three children as well as four foster children they later adopted. Rose had a passion for traveling and was notorious for family car trips to places like Florida, Connecticut, and Texas. For many years after Herb passed, Rose devoted her time to family and friends. In recent years, Rose spent time forming a special friendship with Roger Libby of Montana, a longtime family acquaintance. Rose and Roger spent hours talking on the phone, exchanging letters and text messages, and even traveled between Maine and Montana to spend time together.
