Sr. Ilene Clark Rose

The next Weston rose on our mini-tour is the Sister Ilene Clark Rose, on the Weston Plaza building (i.e. company headquarters) at NE 22nd & Broadway. It's dated 2013, and like a lot of recent Weston roses it's mounted on the building and isn't really a mural, per se. I think they do this so they can take a rose down and relocate it when they sell a building; I've already seen one instance where they did exactly that. Anyway, I'm not really sure who this is named for or why; a quick search comes up with a teacher in Seattle by that name, but it may or may not be the same person. So no links, in part due to a residual Catholic school fear of angering nuns.
