After completing her educations, she went to work in Chippewa Falls for Northern Colony. She was united in marriage to Raymond J. Wellner on June 21, 1939 at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lublin. They bought a farm near Thorp and Rose was a homemaker and farm wife until they retired and sold the farm in the later 1970’s. They then purchased a house and moved to Chippewa Falls.
