Rose E. Cahoon
Rose E. Cahoon, 78, of Drummond, widow of Jack Cahoon, peacefully entered into eternal rest at her home on Tuesday, September 23, 2014. Rose was born March 21, 1936 in Missoula. Her parents were Ernest Tubbs and Annah E. Geary Tubbs. She grew up and attended school in Drummond and Missoula. Rose was married in 1952 and soon had four children. As an adult she made her home in Montana, Kansas, Washington and Nevada. She held several management and trainer positions. On August 9, 1986 she married Jack Cahoon. She moved back to Drummond in 1991 and lived there until her passing.
Rose was proud of her 20 years of service as an EMT on the Drummond Volunteer Ambulance. She loved learning about health issues in order to help those around her. She served on the Drummond City Council. She enjoyed traveling, listening to music and loved to dance. Her many friends were an important part of her life and she loved her dogs Roxie and Riley (the girls). In her later years her greatest joy was spending time with her mother. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend to many. Her smile and laugh lit up the room and she brought joy to our hearts. We will miss our sweet mom, aunt, grandma and friend and comforted in the fact that we will see her again.
