After complications at Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath Falls, Ore., Jeanene Marilyn Oatman, known to many as Rose, joined her Lord and Savior Sept. 23, 2021 with her family by her side. On Sept. 2, 1937, Jeanene was born in Laurel, Miss., to Marvin and Edith Bishop. After divorcing in 1970, she raised her four children on her own while working various jobs. She owned and operated a service station/grocery store during the day and at night, worked as a dinner waitress at Mohawk Restaurant in Crescent, Ore. In 1972, she moved to Klamath Falls and was employed by Weyerhaeuser Timber Company until 1977. She then moved to Aloha, Ore. During that year she enrolled in a locomotive engineers training program in Minneapolis, Minn., graduating in 1978. That same year she was hired by Burlington Northern Railroad to operate locomotives. She commuted from Aloha to Vancouver, Wash., until 1987. She then returned to Klamath Falls and worked at Burlington Northern as a carman for two years. Furthering her education, she completed classes in 1991 at National Safety Council Commercial Driving and Training School, graduating with a CDL. Her driving job took her into several states. Her next job was working for the Oregon Department of Transportation in highway maintenance. For the next 13 years she operated her own cleaning business. During that time she moved her elderly mother from Crescent to Klamath Falls where she could care for her. In 2004, she retired, moving to Beatty, Ore., where she lived a slower pace and loved being close to nature and her daughter who owned a cabin on the property. Jeanene enjoyed weekend visits from her children who traveled to spend time with her. In 2016, her family moved her to Midland, Ore., where she resided her remaining years. Rose loved music and played many instruments, including piano, guitar, steel guitar, accordion, banjo, saxophone, and harp. She looked forward to playing the keyboard at church and Friday jam sessions. Her animals were an important part of her life. She loved them as family. She had a "heart of gold." Her kindness, compassion and generous spirit will be treasured by all who knew her. She had a deep love for family who will miss her more than words can say. She was a strong woman of faith and loved her Lord. Special thanks to Lorraine and Dillard Chronister and Calvary Temple Church.
