Rose Hyder, age 90, of East First Street in Corning, passed away peacefully Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at her home surrounded by her loving family. \n\n\nRose was born on August 27, 1925 to Edward G. Hyder and Mary (Nessle) Hyder. She was their youngest daughter. After her father was injured in a farm accident, Rose took over as the meat cutter in the family's grocery store (Hyder's Grocery) and after their mother retired in 1965, Rose and her brother Ed, who died in 2013, ran the store together until 1997, which was their 75th year in business. The store was always a family operation with emphasis on customer service.\n\n\nRose had been a member of St. Patrick's Parish and attended elementary school there. Rose attended Corning Free Academy where she was a cheerleader. Although Rose faced many health challenges from childhood on, her family and friends knew her as a strong, fiercely independent woman who lived her life just the way she wanted. Rose had many lifelong friends with whom she traveled exploring the East Coast beaches and cruising the Carribbean. She loved the beach, a lively party, and a strong Tom Collins! When she was younger she loved to bowl and was N.Y.S. class B champion in 1976, and she loved her Yankees!!!\n\n\nRose was the last of her generation and was predeceased by her sisters, Reba A. Lewis, Evelyn Breuilly, and her brother, Edward G.
