Rose was a military wife, daughter, mother, and "Rosie" to her grands. Rose was a teacher in her church ministries and worked with many children over the years. We were blessed to have this giving lady in our life. She worked to spoil her grands and great-grands. We all have special memories of our Rosie and will miss her dearly. After her long battle with Alzheimer's disease, she is now healed and with Jesus!
Visitation begins at Harry McKneely & Son Funeral Home of Ponchatoula at 9am and service at 11am conducted by Pastor Jay Griggs of New Life Baptist Church. Burial will be private.
