Rose Franco Alt

Beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away on March 9, 2022, at the age of 90.

Rose was born in Indianapolis on March 21, 1931, to Jack and Rachel Franco.  A lifelong member of Etz Chaim Sephardic Congregation, Rose was an active member in the Etz Chaim Sisterhood.  She was an avid baker and contributed to the hugely successful annual sisterhood bake sale. Rose was known for her taralikoos (Sephardic cookies) and burekas, especially.  She was also a member of the IHC Mitzvah stitchers, knitting beanies for the infants at Riley hospital. She worked for many years as a manicurist. 

Rose loved dancing, playing mahjong and canasta, trips to the casino and dressing up for the annual Halloween costume contest at her retirement community. She cherished her grandchildren and family, and was loved by everyone who knew her.

Rose is survived by her devoted daughters, Hollie Gossett, Shelly (Michael) Katz and Laura (Nathan Steiner) Alt; and her grandchildren, Isabel Gossett, Cece Katz, Ethan Katz, and Josh Steiner. Her husband, Monroe Paul Alt, preceded her in death.

Graveside services will be on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 1:00pm in Etz Chaim Cemetery.  The family will welcome friends at the Katz residence beginning at 4:00pm.

Memorial contributions may be made to Etz Chaim Sisterhood or to Hooverwood Living.
