Rose M. Carsey

March 06, 1937 ‒ January 18, 2010

Bellville, Ohio

BELLVILLE ~ Rose M. Carsey was a talented and accomplished seamstress. On mornings before work, if nothing in her closet struck her fancy, she’d run to the basement, cut out a blouse, and wear the finished product to her job. She used to make all her daughter’s clothes and could make just about anything with needle and thread.

Her talented stitching fingers are now at rest, as Rose passed away Monday morning in her rural Bellville home. She was 72.

Born March 6, 1937 in Cumberland, Maryland, the oldest child of Cecil A. and Georgia L. (Ruby) DeMoss, Rose came to Mansfield at the age of 13.

A Bellville resident for more then 50 years, she was working as a waitress in the former Swigart’s Café, and she met a young man by the name of Charles Frederick “Fred” Carsey. Fred lived in the same apartment building as Rose’s sister, and the two were eventually married on June 23, 1956.

Rose worked 44 years as a press operator with General Industries and G I Plastics, retiring in 2001. She had a light-hearted sense of humor and was so loving and caring.

A member of Three Crosses United Methodist Church in Butler, she also enjoyed flower gardening.

She was a member of the auxiliary units of American Legion Post #535, AMVETS Post #43, and V.F.W. Post #5101.

In addition to her husband of 53 years Fred, she is survived by her daughter Dawn A. Carsey of Bellville; her grandson Caleb Charles Lee Carsey of Bellville; her sister Patricia A. Fry of Bellville; her sister and brother-in-law Sharon K. & Robert Schulte of Mansfield; nieces and nephews; and best friends Rae & Charlie Dunmon of Mansfield.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother Jerry DeMoss
