More than 100 people gathered at The Leatherneck Club Sunday to remember the life of Caroline Rose, a U.S. marine killed on Saturday.

Rose was hit and killed by a car that swerved into her lane as she was exiting the freeway on her motorcycle.

Rose belonged to The Marine Riders, a motorcycle club for those who've served.

"She'd brighten up the room whenever she'd walk in. She always had a smile on her face. She was always there for anybody that needed anything," said the president of the Marine Riders who's known as "Big Boy".

Rose was hit by a Toyota Passenger car around 1 a.m. on Saturday as she was exiting the I-15 on the Charleston eastbound ramp. Anyone who witnessed the crash is encouraged to call the Nevada Highway Patrol.
