Rose Welter Selle was the oldest daughter born to John G. Welter and Maria Helene ( Helen) Gehse Welter. She had two brothers, John G. and Stewart, both deceased, and a sister who still lives.

Rose married Bill Selle and together they had 4 children, 3 of whom are still living, along with several grandchildren.

Rose worked with Bill on the family farm in Northern NJ. They sold Christmas trees during the Christmas season and produce the rest of the year. The corn they grew was a treasured favorite at family gatherings. They sold produce at a roadside stand near Pompton Plains, NJ.

Rose's family was her delight. Her husband and children were the apples of her eye, as were her grandchildren.
