Lyda was always nice and a very sweet and well liked person. Don't think I ever heard her raise her voice at anyone. All who knew her loved and respected her. She had the softest, smoothest, beautiful complection. She would use cold cream on her face regliously
She was always helpful and giving. We, mom, daddy and Linda and I, when we was teen agers, would go to her house in Columbus, Ohio when she was married to Ralph Rose, which was a good person too. Maw Rose would always load Mom up with a lot of stuff when we would go to leave for home. Housewares, food, you name it. She gave all she could and her heart was always in it. She done it for the right reason, because she loved us. She used to sort and price clothing in the old Mt. Mission thrift store, used to be on the corner of Stocton and 7th Ave. in the West end of Charleston in the 1950's. I remember going there one time when a little girl and she was setting in a chair in the second room with stuff all around her to go through. And she would bring us stuff from there. It was called Tuppers Creek then, Walker Dr. now, the roads were dirt, coal trucks would rut them out so bad. I remember looking to the curve and there would be Maw Rose walking to our house, bags in hand. It was almost like Christmas to us kids, and probably Mom too. She would ride as far as she could with someone, then have to walk the rest of the way. If that ain't love, I don't know what is. I just wonder how many stars this great woman has on her crown. Rest in peace Maw Rose. Always love You !
When Lyda's health failed her, she
and Ralph Rose bought a small trailor
and set it up on mom and daddys
property, (Glen and Delores Hughart)
where they lived until Lyda's
death. Ralph continued to live there
for a while, then he married Lola
Cummings Rose and moved in with her
at the head of Wolf Pen Rd. He lived
there until his death.
Lizzie was listed as a widow on the 1900
census for Spring Hill Precinct #3,
Jefferson District, Kanawha County,
West Virginia. She and her children
are living with her father Chastine
(may be Charpain) Johnson & step-mother
Louanna (or Louensia) ? Johnson.
Lizzie mother was named Rebecca ?. She
apparently died when Lizzie was six or so.
Charles Clark that Lizzie was married to
died 1898. It is written in my moms bible.
