January 26, 1940 — January 11, 2022

Rose Marie Bischoff, 81, of Lexington, Nebraska, passed away on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at the Elwood Care Center.

Rose was born on January 26, 1940 in Bertrand, Nebraska to LaMont and Eula (Duff) Jackson. She attended public schools in Bertrand and graduated from Bertrand High School with the class of 1957.  She then went on to pursue higher education at Kearney Vocational School of Nursing to become an LPN.

Rose was united in marriage to John Bischoff on September 9, 1972 in Lexington at St. Ann’s Catholic Church.  One son was blessed to this union: Chad.  Rose worked at several surrounding hospitals before settling in Lexington in 1971. In 1979, after Chad started school, she went back to nursing at Tri-County Hospital in Lexington where she worked for thirty-two years. She worked as a recovery nurse and head of outpatient surgery when she retired in 2012.  Because her passion in life was helping and caring for others, she excelled making a difference in the lives of the patients she worked with.

Rose enjoyed Bingo, playing cards and gambling.  She bowled for many years and always looked forward to league night with her team.  Rose loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.  Rose and John also enjoyed taking their yearly trips to North Dakota to see family.  Rose had a contagious smile and a heart of gold.  She will be missed dearly by many.

She was a member of the St. Ann’s Catholic Church and Eagle’s Auxiliary for many years.
