Obituary from the January 1990 issue of the Socialist Standard
It is with deep regret that we have to announce the passing of Comrade Helen (Nellie) Rose. For over fifty years she had been a staunch and dedicated socialist. Her death was preceded by a long, painful illness so that her departure could only be considered a merciful release
Nellie's adherence to socialism was unwavering. She lived in South London and was a member of the old Lewisham branch and was active in many spheres of Party work including several years as a member of the Executive Committee.
Away from the Party Nellie was a practical person and a skilled dress-maker. She will be remembered as an example of steadfast adherence to, and dedicated work for the advancement of the cause of socialism.
