She was born February 16, 1947 in Idagrove, Iowa, to the late Donald & Mary (Bye) Prichard. On October 1, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois, Rose married Norbert Ricker; Norb survives at their residence in St. Marys. Rose was blessed to have three children, Mike (Missy) Ricker of St. Marys, Stacey (Mike) Grannan of St. Marys and Melanie Watkins who passed away on October 13, 2008.

Rose went on to proudly serve her country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War Era. Rose was a proud mother and wife; she spent many years being a homemaker, preparing meals, and unconditionally caring for her family. She also enjoyed meeting the Norbetts at McDonalds daily. Rose had an unwavering faith in God; she was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in St. Marys, where she was active in the Altar Society. Rose’s strong belief in God and her devoutness to her family supported her in her struggle through illness and ultimately gave her peace as she was embraced in the arms of the Lord.
