Birth: Nov. 30, 1924
Death: Nov. 4, 2013

South Carolina, USA

Daughter of Viola G. and Richard Chisolm.

Rosa Chisolm, 88, of Hilton Head Island died Monday, Nov. 4, 2013, at Hilton Head Hospital. A viewing will be from 11 a.m. until funeral services at 3 p.m. Friday at Central Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Burial will be in Braddock's Point Cemetery. Arrangements by Stiney's Funeral Home.

Rosa Lee (3 wks shy of being 89 when she died Nov 4, 2103) was surely a good student of her Dad's teaching as she was recognized as an excellent fisherman/woman and rowed her boat out into Broad Creek nearly every day for meals; and did this until she was into her early 80's.

David Lauderdale of the 'Island Packet' met Rosa about 8 years ago and wrote an article about her entitled "Only God put fish in dat watah", published in the Island Packet November 19, 2013:
