Rosanna Grove, 102

February 16, 2005

Rosanna Grove, 102, died in Danville, PA at the home of her daughter, Ruth Fetterolf on Wednesday, February 16, 2005.  She was born in Williamsport, PA in 1902, the daughter of the late Dr. Jacob and Sophie Heim Snyder. 

She was married for 50 years to the late Howard Grove whom she married in 1928.  They first lived in South Williamsport until his work with Bell Telephone took them to Flemington, PA in 1934.

She  is survived by one son, Thomas Grove and wife Beverly of Nova Scotia and two daughters; Grace Claster and husband Jay of State College, PA and Ruth Fetterolf and husband Jack of Danville, PA.  A son, John Grove and his wife Elizabeth died in 1980 in Lock Haven.  She is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.  Also surviving is a brother, J. Harvey Snyder and his wife Louise of Williamsport, PA. 

Rosanna lived in Flemington, PA for 48 years and then in 1982, four years after Howard’s death, moved to what is now Riverwoods in Lewisburg, PA for 16 years.

In recent years her care has been divided between her daughters Ruth and Grace in their homes.

Her long life exemplified her favorite poem, “Let me live in a house by the side of a road and be a friend to man.”  Flemington’s community and its Methodist Church were at the very center of her life with Howard, the pair devoting enormous support and still warmly remembered for their charity and hospitality.  Relatives and friends were weekly guests at their table and they often fed and housed families of patients of the nearby hospital.  Widely known was Grove’s Pond, opened to the public year round for swimming and ice skating with Rosanna seeing to it that the skaters had hot chocolate.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Flemington United Methodist Church Box 25 Lock Haven, PA 17745 where she is a member.  Arrangements are under the direction of Visneski Funeral Home, Inc. 10 West Mahoning Street Danville, PA.
