Mary Rose Ford, age 55 of Clinton, TN passed away Saturday, October 6, 2012 at Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge, TN. Mary Rose was a unique, inspirational and spiritual woman. She was a devoted loving wife and beautiful, loving mother and an extraordinary loving Mamaw who truly enjoyed and lived life to the fullest. She dedicated her time to her grandkids by making a variety of arts, crafts and memories. Mary Rose enjoyed gardening, scrapbooking, playing the piano, and she LOVED and held her family very close and very dear, showing each of them off to everyone.
