Mrs. Rozell spent a long and useful life working in church activities and charity organizations since early youth. She taught school for a number of years and never lost interest in educational, political and civic activities.
She was a wonderful mother and wife, a good neighbor and had the ability to make everyone feel happy and at ease with her hospitable way.
She was a true pioneer woman that made the most of everything she had. She will be long remembered in the hearts of everyone that knew her. Her bequeath to the daughters of this community is the fine example of true womanhood and our loss is Heaven's gain.
