On July 6, 1935 in the quiet little town of Hamlin, Texas a beautiful baby girl was born. Rose Laverne Tindal was born to Leslie J. and Generah (Gerry) Tindal. The gates of Heaven received a beautiful angel on Thursday, November 19,2020. Rose may have been born in Hamlin but she was a Midland girl at heart. Rose is preceded in death by her father Leslie, who was killed in an accident in Breckenridge, Texas in 1937 when Rose was barely 2 years old. For many years after the death of her father, Rose and Gerry thrived with the help of much of Leslie’s family.
Rose was a proud member of the Midland High School Class of 1953.
Rose married George Eberle in Midland, Texas in 1957. To that union was born two children
Tammy and David. In 1971 Rose found love in B. D. (Pete) Mills (deceased). In this new chapter of Rose’s life, she gained two more children. Judy Bagwell (deceased) and Mike Mills.
Rose and Pete enjoyed life to the fullest! From travels with friends to family gatherings, our mother loved her family beyond measure! Anytime she could have all the kids, grandkids and great grandkid together she was the happiest!
Rose was also known for her many years with Mary Kay. She loved her time selling Mary Kay and even earned the sought-after Pink Cadillac. She often referred to her Mary Kay career as life saving in so many ways. She attributed her beautiful skin to Mary Kay and Ponds!
Rose had a flare for decorating for every occasion! David often said Mom would decorate for Arbor Day if she could! Rose did have one very, very important hobby and that was SHOPPING! Jewelry and Purses were her weakness! Her collection of miniature shoes was huge. Her other love was her collection of Santa’s. She could not pass up a Santa especially if it was on sale!
Her favorite color in the world was red. If it was red she wanted it!
Our mother was the most beautiful women God ever made! Her beauty was both on the inside and out. The lessons she taught us are ones that we will treasure and continue to practice all the days of our lives.
Rose is preceded in death by Husband Pete Mills (1-8-2020) Brother Jack Lanier, Daughter Judy Bagwell and Son in Law Freddie Watt (4-29-2020).
