  • So sorry to hear of the loss of Rosie, something that comes to my mind when thinking of Rose, is her beautiful spirit of kindness and always had a sweet endearing smile on her face. Also, she was a very excellent example in the Marion Ohio congregation of Jehovahs Witneses, I was a child growing up there, and she always stood out to me as a constant excellent example. One major comfort is Rose was sure in her faith, that the effects of pain and sickness are very temporary, and she taught so many people about the “real life” that lies ahead, when she will be resserected with no more pain and be able to live life in a perfect paradise on earth. John 5:28, 29…..Rev 21:3, 4

  • Dear Family of Rose Marie Jackson,
    We wanted to tell you how much Rose will be missed. Although she didn’t play a big roll in our lives she was always a very nice person to be around. Always remember that those whom you love will always live on in your heart. With deepest sympathy!
