BIOGRAPHY

Buren Rose was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, on February 14, 1919. She graduated from Simonsen Junior High School in 1936. Shortly afterward she married Richard Day and moved to Kansas City, where she worked as a switchboard operator. They later moved to San Antonio, Texas, where she worked babysitting for her brother. In August of 1942 she joined the civil service and was stationed at the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center (now Lackland Air Force Base) where she was the driver for Colonel Morris Taber. During this time her marriage dissolved, and she met Lieutenant Jack Rose, who she married on June 5, 1943. She left the service that year when she became pregnant. In 1948 she began working for a local radio station in Leaksville, North Carolina, producing women’s programs. She also worked at radio stations in LaGrange, Georgia, and Anniston, Alabama, where she relocated for Jack’s career.
