PARKER CITY--Rosabell "Rosie" Cole, 85, passed away Tuesday afternoon, November 20, 2012 at the Parker Health Care Center following a brief illness.
She was born on March 1, 1927 in Selma, the daughter of Edgar Ray and Mabel M. (Cline) Sutton.
Rosie attended Muncie Central High School and later attended Amber's Beauty School. She married the love of her life, John Thomas Cole, Sr., and they enjoyed 59 years of marriage prior to his passing in 2003. Mrs. Cole had been a homemaker most of her life and she was co-owner of Johnnies Alignment Service along with her husband. To say she enjoyed bowling was an understatement. Rosie had been a member of the Women's Bowling Association, where she had gone to several Naitonal events having been awarded several pins and was also a member of the 600 Club. She enjoyed playing pool, pitching horseshoes and playing card games like Poker, Euchre, Rummy and Texas Holdem. Rosie also liked light houses.
Surviving are two daughters, Carolyn Furbee (husband-Ronald) and Jonna S. Reece, both of Muncie; three grandchildren, Missy Adkison (husband-David), Muncie, Todd Reece (wife-Sandy), Brownsburg, and Angela Thrasher (husband-Matt), Yorktown; four great-grandchildren, Zach Reffitt, Bryaden Thrasher, Cole Carroll, and Sara Carroll; two step great-granddaughters, Alexyss and Mykaela Adkison; one brother, Edgar Ray "Bud" Sutton of Richmond; one sister-in-law, Ruth King of New Castle; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Besides her husband, John, she is preceded in death by her parents; one son, John "Tom" Cole, Jr. in 1967; one grandson, Shaun T. Ripley in 2002; and two sisters, Berneda McCord and Jeanne Babbitt.
