Rose was a long-time member of Bethel Baptist Church in Fort Deposit where she served as church secretary/clerk for forty-six years.
She will be remembered for her love of God, family, church, and Fort Deposit. And, most importantly for her spectacular banana pudding! Rose loved to sew, crochet, watch Auburn football and play dominoes. (She was a cut-throat domino player.)
A special thanks to the caregivers at Sylacauga Health and Rehab who helped care for Rose during the past two years and to the ICU Department of Coosa Valley Medical Center who cared for Rose in her last few days.
