Rose was a charter member of the Mountain View Baptist Church in New River, TN and charter member of County Line Baptist Church in Beavercreek, OH, and a long time member of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Dayton, OH. Rose put her faith in Christ as a young girl based on the familiar verse John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." Her faith in Christ and in His presence with us in this life and thereafter was her anchor in life's many circumstances. She worked 15+ years at Rike's in Merchandise Processing, but her most cherished role was mother and grandmother. Rosella and her husband, Fred, shared a love of travel and did so extensively.
