Rosalie Bradford held records for being the world's heaviest woman and for losing the most weight.

She died at a hospital in Lakeland, Florida. She lived in Central Florida, in Auburndale.

According to the 1994 Guiness Book of World Records, her highest was was recorded as 1,050 pounds in January 1987. She lost 736 pounds, down to 314 pounds in 1992, according to the book.

Her immediate cause of death was not known.

At one point, Ms. Bradford attempted suicide by overdose, but her weight served to only dilute the medication. She slept for two days. A friend contacted Richard Simmons on her behalf and he worked with her to get her weight under control.

She is survived by her husband and one son.

Beautiful lady, your suffering is over. The beauty that wasn't always often seen by others in you, is very prominently seen by me. I think you would be a joy to talk to. You've made an impression and an impact and you are sorely missed.Revelation 21:1-4
