God gained another angel, Rose Anna Bariekman of Bogata, Texas, Saturday, February 29, 2020. She was truly an Angel, a gift from God, an amazingly strong woman with the biggest heart who would help anyone and literally would give you the clothes off her back, give you the last dollar to help. She sacrificed so much for her kid’s happiness never putting herself first. This woman was my everything, my best friend, she was my hero, and I call her mom.
Rose was born in Bug Tussle, Texas on July 16, 1956. She spent most of her life in Iowa, she attended Mason City Schools. She retired from the State of Iowa where she worked in the Comptrollers office. After moving to Bogata a year ago, Anna worked at the Stop N Start in the meat market.
