Rose Marie Weathers Arnold
Rose Marie Weathers Arnold, age 70, departed this life on January 26, 2013. She was the daughter of the late Frank and Jullette Weathers.
Rose was united in holy matrimony to her cherished husband, Henry L. Arnold, on March 6, 1965 and to this beautiful union two children were born (Taffany Maria and Prince Terrell). In 2012, Henry and Rose celebrated their 47th Year Anniversary.
Rose was educated in the public schools of Escambia County. After attending Booker T. Washington High School, she attended Washington Junior College and she received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Bethune Cookman College (Daytona Beach, FL) and her Master of Education from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU-Tallahassee, FL).
She believed in education and her professional career spoke volumes to the career she pursued as an educator in the Escambia County school system. Rose contributed to the educational advancement of many children as a teacher in several local schools including: Ransom High School, Wedgewood Middle School, Carver High School (Century, FL) and Washington Adult High School. Rose retired as the Chairman of the Mathematics Department at Booker T. Washington High School in 2001.
Rose was a faithful member of Englewood Missionary Baptist Church. In 1998, her husband became the Pastor of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church (Cantonment, FL) and Rose dutifully assisted him in the ministry.
Rose touched many lives and all who knew her will surely miss her presence. She leaves to mourn and cherish her memory, love and legacy, her loving and devoted husband, Henry L. Arnold; one daughter, Taffany Shipp; one son, Prince T. (April) Arnold; two grand-daughters, Jordan LaRose Shipp and Parker Rwizi; four grandsons, Prince Isaiah Arnold and Deuce Rwizi of Milton, FL, Theo and Cassio Shipp, both of Kansas City, MO; godmother, Marion Cotton; god-daughter, Marjorae Ball of Kenner, LA; two sisters, Guerlean (Thomas) Allison of Kannapolis, NC and Jannette Neal of Pensacola, FL; two brothers, David (Christine) Weathers of Milton, FL and Nathaniel (Jacqueline) Weathers of Pensacola, FL; three brother-in-laws, Prince Arnold, Jr. and Alphonse (Joyce) Arnold, both of Pensacola, FL and David (Ruth) Savage of Cleveland, OH; two sister-in-laws, Isabell (Joe) Thomas of Century, FL and Prince Ann (Calvin) Cooley of Cleveland, OH and a host of nieces, nephews, loving relatives and friends.
