Rosetta Alice Newstead
Birth: 1887
Greater London, England
Death: Mar. 24, 1968
Hampshire, England

Mrs Rosetta Alice Newstead. *Nee Aviss*

Rosetta was a loving lady. Happy as long as her family was, she had a hard life but things did improve. She put alot of responsiblity on her eldest daughter named after her as she was the oldest. She was not openly loving something which bothered her children. However she did care as for instance on my Nan's wedding day she went on the Piano and played Nan's faviourt song "Goodnight Sweetheart" over and over again and made extra oomph on the "All my prayers are for you." In her own way she was showing how much she cared.

Devoted wife, suffered from illness during her life although nothing that stopped her from doing what she loved.

Rosetta was a Beloved Mother and a caring woman she was a concert pianist but sadly her career was stopped at just 12! after her mother passed away leaving her to care for a baby and 6 other young children as the oldest.

She was married to Fred in 1908 and remained with him the rest of her life.

She passed away in 1968 aged 81, At home leaving many heartbroken. Fly Free Noble Heart XXX Lots of Love XXX

In Duty's round by Day and Night
The thought of you steals on My Heart
The dear companion of my Dreams
So near. And yet so far apart.
Goodnight and God Bless

No length of time can take away my thoughts of you from day to day. Whatever else I fail to do, I will never fail to think of you.
