Miss Rosie was all the things she needed to be to me. As a brand new believer in Jesus Christ, she nurtured me in the faith, displayed Jesus well for me, encouraged me when I couldn't get enough of this new life or I had enough of this new life and I was done. She didn't even chide me when I dropped Linda off at the hospital ( baby Jeremy soon to arrive) and came back to Wednesday night service to lead singing. Sweetness poured out of that lady. Miss Rosie, it's been 50 years and like you, I've found our dear Saviour more wonderful, more gracious, more faithful than I ever could imagine.

Aunt Rosie was a great lady. A faithful wife, mother, grandmother. She loved her Lord Jesus Christ and was a wonderful example of a Christian. She was with my mother when my dad passed. She was with my mother when my brother passed. She was with my mother when she passed. She was my second mother! I WILL MISS HER! God bless the family members. Alvin & Barbara Stevens

Rosie has been my step-Mom for 46+ years. I wan very fortunate to have her in my life. She was always there for us no matter what we were going through. She was always postive and shared her belief in Christ with us. She was an inspiration for me to be kind and understanding to others. We will miss you. Heavan has gained another angel.
