April 06, 2004

Rose Aus, a former Social Security Administration worker and homemaker, died of undetermined causes Wednesday at her Cockeysville home. She was 56.

The former Rose DePasquale was born and raised in Hamilton. A 1965 graduate of Eastern High School, she began work that year as an SSA key-punch operator in Woodlawn. She worked there until her marriage in 1973 to Frederick A. Aus, now vice chairman and chief executive officer of Dunbar Armored Car Inc.

Mrs. Aus enjoyed playing slot machines in Atlantic City, and visiting London and Tijuana, Mexico, where she was able to indulge her passion for shopping, family members said.

She had been a member of the Mercy High School Mother's Club and was a cat fancier.

Mrs. Aus was a communicant of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Cockeysville.

Services were held yesterday.

In addition to her husband, survivors include two sons, Craig A. Aus of Cockeysville and Douglas E. Aus of Towson; a daughter, Karen L. Aus of Cockeysville; her father, August J. DePasquale of Baltimore; three brothers, Vincent DePasquale of Cape St. Claire, and Richard DePasquale and Michael DePasquale, both of Baltimore; and six sisters, Ann Lambros and Josephine Heise, both of Cockeysville, Mary Davis of Timonium, Bonnie Hanson of Davidsonville, Julia Finney of Glen Arm and Marguerite Herr of Perry Hall.
