SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko basketball lost a long-time, avid supporter Saturday.

The Wildcats’ gymnasium seemed oddly quiet to many Whitko fans without the presence of Donna Rose, who died in a single-vehicle crash, just hours before the boys basketball game against West Noble.

Rose, 73, was in the crowd the night before, Friday, as she has been for nearly every Whitko home game for decades.

According to the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department, Rose was killed after her vehicle struck a tree near County Roads 500 South and 800 West at approximately 2:44 p.m. Saturday.
