      Sylvia Louise (Rose) Tuers, Second Hand Rose Pawn Shop assistant manager and a longtime leader in Tulsa's interfaith community, died Saturday. She was 65. Tuers was born in Okemah on April 20, 1936. She graduated in 1954 from Central High School and from the University of Oklahoma in 1958.
      She married her first husband, Robert E. Griffin and had two children. They lived in California and on the East Coast before re turning to Tulsa in 1973. The couple was divorced in 1976, and she married Earl R. Tuers Jr. in 1981. Tuers worked in the family business, Second Hand Rose, retiring in 1997.
      Tuers was a board member and past president of RSVP and had been a president of the Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry board. She was an active teacher and leader at Boston Avenue United Methodist Church. She also taught parenting classes for Family and Children's Service and volunteered for Youth Services of Tulsa.
      She served on the Tulsa Public Schools Board Oversight Committee and played a key role in countless other community and civic causes.
      Last month at the 18th annual Interfaith Awards luncheon, she was honored for her longtime contributions to building understanding between people of different faiths. She joined 40 earlier recipients of the award, which is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Tulsa, the National Conference for Community and Justice, and Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry.
      She is survived by her husband, Earl Tuers Jr., a son, Scott Griffin of Aledo, Texas; four stepchildren; and 15 grandchildren.
