Bridget, second oldest of eleven children, was born in Corbin, Newfoundland, to Bernard and Elizabeth Grant on April 21, 1928. She emigrated to Brooklyn, New York in July 1947 where she met and subsequently married fellow Newfoundlander, Alexander Rose in 1954. Prior to her marriage, she worked at the Pilgrim Laundry located in Brooklyn, where she developed a life-long love for baseball, first as a Brooklyn Dodger fan and subsequently the New York Mets. During her later years, she worked at Holy Family Home, also located in Brooklyn. During her ninety-three plus years, Bridget centered her life around her faith and her family/friends. Her happiest times were spent celebrating family events and sharing a glass of wine (or Bailey’s Irish Cream) with those she loved. She and Alex raised four children. Bridget is survived by her daughters, Mary Anne and Theresa, grandson, Gerald and siblings, Kathleen, Violet and Theresa. She is preceded in death by her husband, Alex; son, Kevin; daughter, Kathleen; siblings, James, Mary, Nellie, Laura, Anne Marie, Melene and Robert.
