For the past three years my old fashioned rosebush blooms really nice and then the leaves start turning brown and by mid June all the leaves are brown. I am located in north eastern Kansas. Should I cut the rosebush all the way off or do I need to trade it with some thing?

Don't cut it down. Someone here will be able to help.

@lori4_10 - I may not be able to help but if you can provide the following information it may give some others here what they need to assist you.

Do you have any photos of when the rose is in bloom?
Do you know the name of the rose?
Do you see any signs of insects/pests?? Spider mites come to mind for me.
Has it been sprayed or treated (or perhaps received over-spray) with any chemicals?
I think this is unlikely but do you water it overhead? (leaf burn)
Has your weather been consistent the past three years that this has happened?

Welcome! I'm sorry this incident brought you here but the silver lining is that this is a fantastic group full of extremely helpful folk!

I did not take any photos while in bloom-It blooms hot pink smaller roses.
I was given a cutting from my grandmother, and my mother and her just called it an "old fashioned rose".
I have not seen any bugs or insects.
I sprayed it every 7 days or so last spring with a fungus chemical (one I had for my apple trees) and it did not help. I probably sprayed it 4-5 times.
I don't water it at all! Never have! Maybe that's why!!! But I've had it for like 10 years and never watered it and this just began 3 years ago.
Weather is fairly consistent. Mild spring and then really hot in the summer (85-100).
Now wondering if it's a disease or lack of water. Any help is greatly appreciated as I would hate to lose it.
Again, wondering if (and if so, when) I should cut it way back to promote fresh growth.

I would go ahead and cut it back now. If it was me, I would also start a regular watering schedule.
Is there any possibility that after you sprayed the leaves were still wet when the sun hit it?

I sprayed them last year around mid morning or noon. I did not spray them at all this year.
