On a lighter note, Rose lives in a log home in the woods outside of Charlottesville with Jon, her husband of 35 years, her Macaw Parrot, Flapper, and her West Highland Terrier, Westley. She adores any time she can spend with her two adult children and her young granddaughter, Ella. Rose is a musician and has played upright bass and guitar all of her life. She regularly performs with “The Lovell Coleman Band”, a group of Swing, Country and Old-Time Musicians. The band perform around Central Virginia and are a regular feature at many local nursing homes. The band members also provide end of life musical services whenever they can be of assistance. The youngest band member is 65, and the oldest is 96. Rose has played with this band for the past 20 years, and affectionately refers to the band as “Old Folks on Fire.” She looks forward to many more years of being a part of the connection between music and joy for those of all ages.
