Memories Timeline


  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Growing up in Farmington, I remember Rosie being at Medical Arts when ever we would go to the Doctor and we would love seeing a friendly face with a wonderful smile that she always had for us, besides the suckers that she would slip to us that Mom wasn't supposed to know about. Then when Rosie's niece Brenda married my little brother Tim, we were blessed to have Rosie as an "extension of our family too". Bless you all Linda and Mark

  2. Gerald, I was so shocked to hear of Rosies passing. You both will always hold such a special place in my heart. I want to be there so much. I, as well as Erin, will always hold The Unity Candle you both made for her and Brent right next to our heart. Heaven is a happier place today!

  3. To The Mossman Family: I am so sorry for your loss, Rosie was a Great & Wonderful Lady. She made the flowers for my daughter's wedding & they were so beautiful. Sue,LeaDonna & myself had a wonderful time making them with her. She will be missed by everyone that knew her. (LeaDonna's Friend)

  4. I worked with Rosie at Medical Arts Clinic. She was always so happy and a blessing to be around. I don't think I ever saw her in a bad mood. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be missed!

  5. Gerald & Family I'm so sorry about Rosie, She was such a wonderful person. She has a special place in my heart. Rosey was so good to me when I worked for her at Medical Arts. I loved her like a second mom..We had alot of fun and I have alot of good memories..My prayers are with you and your family. Blessings, Kim Devine

  6. I dont even know where to begin to tell how much i loved this woman ! My heart is aching because i cant imagine my life without " Rosie " being in it. She has always been a member of our family. She was my Mom's special friend. She was " Lucy " and my Mom was " Ethel" And boy could them two get themselves in some messes. When i became pregnant with my son Nicholas she was right by my side. So, after he was born i asked her to be his God Mother. Never knowing how important she would take that role. She has been at every one of his birthday parties in 22 years, but 1 because she was sick. She even went when he drove a race car to watch him race and proudly told everyone SHE was his God Mother. So, Rosie, i love you with all my heart, I will honor you by trying to be more like you ! And Thank You for always loving me. You will always be Nicholas God Mother. Enjoy heaven, YOU deserve it. Love You, LeaDonna

  7. There are no words that could be said, that someone, somewhere in time, hasn't already said to describe Rosie. No matter how sick she was, no matter how bad she felt, she would never show it, at least not to most of us. From Federal IGA to the Medical Arts Clinic, she never meet a stranger and always had a kind word. Her relentless faith kept her pushing on, until eventually her body gave out. I will never be able to watch a Cardinal game, NASCAR race, or smell Musk Oil ever again without thinking of Rosie. She was an excellent example of a wife and mother, who loved her family more than anything, and everyone who knew her loved her back. While we are left here on earth to miss her and cry without her, the angels in heaven are rejoicing as God welcomes her into his arms, finally in heaven, finally at rest. To Duke, Gordon, and Greg a big thank you for sharing her with me while growing up. She is truly irreplaceable. Lynn

  8. Gerald and family- There is no one like Rosie a true one of a kind friend- Her kindness will be missed all around.

  9. Rosie was such a dear and sweat person. She was such "SPECIAL LADY". Know matter where you would run into her she would always come up and give you a big hug and with her big smile ask you how you are doing. She was always so happy. Rosie is going to be missed so much but no one will ever forget such a kind, sweet, gentle, and special person. Rosie you are LOVED BY ALL!!!!!!!!!


  11. We are so sorry for you loss and regret that we can't be there. Know our thoughts and prays are with all of you.

  12. Gordon, I am so sorry to hear the passing of your Mother. If I can do anything let me know. May God Bless you and your family at this time.

  13. Gerry: I am so sorry to hear about Rosie's passing. I will always remember the good times with you,Rosie, Mom and Dad around the picnic table!

  14. To the Mossman Family: Just wanted to express our sympathies during your time of loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Brad and Kathy Paul (Nephew of Vicki Weadon)

  15. Hi, I am the daughter of Calvin and Mary Furry. I knew Rosemary from the time I have been a little girl. My husband and I live in Tn. stationed at Ft. Campbell Ky. Sorry to hear of your loss. I can still remember her smile as a little girl…. I hope you all make it through this tough time by the grace of God.

  16. Our deepest sympathies are with you during your time of loss. Rosie was a wonderful person and friend to so many. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

  17. I'm so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful lady. I worked with Rosie and Gordon both at Federal IGA years ago. She was so funny. I have been talking to Rosie recently at the Baptist Church. My husband Richard and I attend church there and we had talked several different times in the past two years at church. I was out of town during her death and just found out about her passing. She was a true fighter and will be missed by everyone who knew her. A long time friend, Donna
