Rose was born and raised in Arnaudville, LA. She was a strong-willed and an independent woman who enjoyed working. During her working years she was an Avon representative and was employed as an inspector at Martin Mills in St. Martinville, LA, for many years. Rose also owned and operated a fabric store, House of Fabrics, in Arnaudville for a few years prior to retirement.
Rose was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She had a generous spirit and lovely personality who will always be remembered for her gift of giving unselfishly to others. Rose always kept herself busy; could never sit still for long. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, painting ceramics, gardening and canning vegetables and playing Po-Ke-No with friends. She also enjoyed fishing and camping with her beloved husband, Joe. Rose was very proud of her two grandchildren and supported them by attending all their school activities and events as they grew up. There existed no greater joy than spending her life in support of their dreams.
One of her passions was family and she dedicated her life to them. She always looked forward to preparing Sunday dinner for her family. She was an excellent cook. For years, she made sacrifices to ensure her family got what they needed.
Rose loved her life and was happy with all the things that she accomplished. She will be sadly and deeply missed, but we will cherish her memories forever.
Rose married the love of her life, Vioris "Fra" Olivier on April 23, 1955. Together, they enjoyed 57 wonderful years together until his passing. They are reunited once again.
She is survived by her children, Debra A. Olivier of Arnaudville, LA; Karen O. Babineaux and husband Charles of Carencro, LA; two grandchildren, Brennen Joseph McCullough of Dallas, TX, and Michael Joseph Zanetti of Lafayette, LA; one sister, Beulah Broussard of Maurice, LA; one brother, Reggis Marks of Broussard, LA.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Roaul Marks and Sidonie Periou; two brothers, Lawrence "Peto" Marks and Adolph "Joe" Marks.
