Posted in Harmony Obituaries



Rose Ann Barker formally of Harmony, Minn., passed away March 19, 2015, while in hospice care in Phoenix, Ariz.

Rose Ann Donna Mae was born July 28, 1929 to Charlie and Agnes Anderson in Remer Minn. She graduated from Remer HS in 1947. Upon graduation she moved to the Twin Cities and worked at Louise F. Dow as a switchboard operator.

On October 29, 1949, she married George Mix. Then she began work at 3M as a clerk typist. In 1954 George and Rose Ann went into foster care for Lutheran Social Services. During this time they cared for 125 babies and toddlers. George passed away on April 27, 1964, of a massive heart attack.

In September of 1965 she enrolled in the LPN program at the University of Minnesota, and graduated in 1966. She then worked at St. Joseph Hospital for one year and from there went to St. John’s Hospital and worked in the OB/GYN.

On June 13, 1970, she married John Barker. She began work September 1970 at the Harmony Nursing Home and Hospital until her retirement in 1994. She throughly enjoyed working with the elderly; it gave her a special reward. She had several health issues during her life. She was a breast cancer survivor, had heart bypass surgery, developed diabetes, and other health problems. Rose Ann was an active member Greenfield Lutheran Church.

While living in Harmony she was co-facilitator of a Cancer Support Group in Harmony. She did this until she moved to Phoenix to live with her daughter and son-in-law in October of 2008.

In Phoenix she was a member of Deer Valley Lutheran Church. Her health continued to slowly decline. She really missed Minn. while in Phoenix; she especially missed all her friends she had made in Harmony. However, she didn’t miss the winters there.

She loved to travel, but could no longer travel. But when she could, she loved Las Vegas. She enjoyed her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren, and loved when they came to visit.

She is survived by her son Dennis (Marian) Mix of Maplewood Minn.; her daughter ,Nancy (Michael) Holthaus of Phoenix Ariz.; five grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, George and husband, John; great-grandson, Mark; and six siblings: Carl Edlund, Margaret Edlund, Merwin Edlund, Janice Sward, Lorraine Carlquist, and Donald Anderson.

Services were held at Deer Valley Luther .....
