Minister Rosie L. Holley Brown was a loving, devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend to so many that did all she could, when she could for her family and friends. With no questions asked, Minister Rosie would see a task that needed to be completed and she made sure it was done, with or without any help. Her heart was so big that she reached out to all who needed her, and no matter the time or hour she always had a listening ear and a chest or shoulder for you to cry and lean on.
Her sense of humor would turn a frown into a smile, and whatever load you were carrying had to come off after leaving her presence. She was a TRUE “Mother & Sister & Friend” to so many women that had gone through so many things, and even in her own sickness she nursed others back to health. She had a love for people, that shined so bright and supported her family with all her might. She truly was a jewel, a diamond in the rough, a Beautiful Rose, we were blessed to have and call our own, “Rosie” you held such a sweet aroma, that rubbed off on us all. Life for us all just won’t be the same, but because you came and lived, we know just how much and hard to love, and give God all the Praise.
She was preceded in death by her mother, the late Mrs. Katherine Davis Holley, her father, the late Mr. James Ed Holley, her brothers, the late Mr. Walker Jr. Thomas (Debra), the late Mr. Jerome Thomas (Claudette), and her two close nephews, the late Mr. Marcus D. Davis and the late Mr. Andre L. Davis.
