Rose Marie Mullen

Rose Marie Mullen was born in Farmer City, Illinois, on January 3, 1945, at the home of her Aunt Catherine and Uncle Alden. Her parents were Margaret Marie Thurman and Harold Eugene Mullen. She passed away on January 27, 2022, due to complications from Covid-19. Throughout her life, Rose owned a business with her first husband and later worked at Hertz as a reservation specialist and Sprint Corporation helping people solve problems with their phone service. However, thirty-two years ago, through no fault of her own, Rose had a devastating car accident on the Will Rogers Turnpike, which changed her life and her family's life forever. In spite of her injuries, she fought valiantly to recover. After over 50 surgeries, it was only her strong determination which kept her mobile so long, but she remained in pain most of her days. Even with her mobility issues, Rose's favorite hobby was traveling, and her family is grateful she was able to travel in the U.S. and abroad before she became too handicapped to do so. Also, her love of sparkly jewelry, fancy clothes, and sassy shoes was legendary. Lack of mobility didn't affect her shopping abilities. The family wants to thank Bradford Village Assisted Living Center and Suncrest Hospice Care for taking such good care of our mother and grandmother. You cared for her as if she were part of your family, and we appreciate your dedication. Rose is survived by her daughter, Dee Nash (William); her grandchildren, Ashley Nash, Megan Secrest (Robert), Brennan Nash and Claire Nash; great-granddaughter Madeline Secrest; and her brother, Eugene Mullen. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Nita Arterburn and her great-granddaughter, Harper Gianna Secrest. A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, February 8th at 9 a.m. at Saint Francis of Assisi Church, 1901 NW 18th Street in Oklahoma City with a private internment immediately afterward.
