Rose Marie (Vasquez) Faur

Nov. 14, 1930 – Aug. 6, 2023


Rose Faur went home to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in “paradise” (Luke 23:43) on August 6, 2023. She passed away peacefully at her home with her loving daughter and son at her bedside. The Faur family would like to extend a special thank you to the Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospice staff for their truly compassionate care. One of Rose's favorite phrases when observing a person helping another person, either by profession or volunteering, was “they're doing God's work!” The CCM Hospice staff, and all other hospice professionals do “God's work” on a daily basis. Bless you all!

Rose was born in Alliance, Ohio and raised from age six to eighteen at the Fairmount Children's Home in Alliance, along with her sister, Helen, and brothers, John and Chuck. She graduated from Alliance High School in 1948. She then moved to Canton and attended Canton Beauty College, graduating in 1950 as a state certified beautician.

Also in 1950, Rose married John “Jack” Faur from East Canton. They were married for over twenty years and would have two children, Lori and David. Rose's first job was at Kobackers Department store in downtown Canton, which she had for many years. Rose would eventually start her own business, Rose's Beauty Shop, in her home on 31st St. N.W. Canton. She was well ahead of her time as a women owning her own business, when very few women did at the time.

After many years in business, she closed her shop and became the head beautician at the House of Loretto Nursing Home on Harvard Ave. N.W. for over twenty five years. Rose's work ethic was incredible and when someone would ask when she was going to retire, working well into her 80s, she would often respond “no work, no eat!” Rose had many wonderful friendships with the nuns, staff, patients, and their families over the many years there.

Rose was a very active member in the United Church of Christ on Market Ave. N.W. in the 1960s-70s. She volunteered in many service ministries including food delivery to needy families. Her generosity and kindness permeated every aspect of her daily life and everyone she met. She was a great believer in the “social gospel” as inspired by Reverend Grunwald of UCC at that time. Rose's favorite scripture verse was Matthew 28:20, Jesus' last words to the disciples before ascending to heaven, “and Io, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Rose had many joys and passions in life including travel (favorite trip: white water rafting down Snake River), gardening (favorite flowers: roses), music (favorite singer: Neil Diamond), history (favorite historical figures: President Franklin Roosevelt and Martin Luther King) and shopping (Harville Flea Market). Her greatest joy may have been being around small children, to whom she would say “God love 'em, sweet little face.”

Rose was most passionate about being a mother. Her love, compassion, and understanding were given to her children daily and deeply. This was not limited to her own children, but to all their friends growing up and in the neighborhood. Everyone was welcome, accepted, and a friend at Rose's house.

After retiring from the House of Loretto and selling her home, Rose moved into her son's N.W. Canton home. She lived out her finals years in quiet prosperity and peace with her daughter and son by her side. Loving memories of Rose's spirit will live in our hearts forever. And Io, she will be with us always, even to the end of the age. Rose is survived by her daughter, Lori Ann Faur and Son, David Phillip Faur, both of Canton. A private memorial will be held.
