Rosie Lee Thomas Flowers was born on November 23, 1937 in Leslie Ga. to the late Mary Ella Thomas. She fell asleep on December 11, 2023 in Jacksonville, Fl.
Rosie married Solomon Flowers (deceased) on April 10, 1955. They had nine children. She leaves to mourn her children, Junarion Flowers Hubbard (Lynn), Reevie Flowers, Sheila Flowers Gilbert, Melissa Flowers Benton (Cornell), and Roderick Flowers; her sisters Johnnie Louise Cunningham, Carrie Williams (David); Grandchildren, Rochelle Sumbry (Michael), Utoka Hosley, Lynarion Hubbard- Spellman (Alex), Perry Hubbard, Brandon Gilbert, Ashley Gilbert, Chelsey Gilbert, Najee Glover, Cierra Lofton, and Cornell, CJ Benton, 17 great-grandchildren, and two great-great grands, her special daughter Linda Rice, and special friends Mary Green and Margaret James.
Rosie was preceded in death by her children, Solomon Flowers Jr., Marilyn Flowers, Reginald Flowers, and Cheryl Flowers, and granddaughters Tameka Flowers and Tyler Lofton.
Following a careful study of the bible she dedicated her life to Jehovah God and became one of his witnesses when she symbolized that dedication by baptism , on October 23,1986.
Rosie’s life was centered on her faith and her family. Love for others defined her. She was an inspiration to others and set the example of what a real woman should be. She never allowed the complications of life to restrict her, and her determination was like a shield of steel. Her compassion and grace was the essence of who she was. She gave when she had little to give. She created beauty in desolate spaces, and refused to allow unpleasantness to invade her space. She forgave those who trespassed against her. She did not judge others, because she knew she had not walked in their shoes. She produced meals that fed the hungry, and served as harvests of love, and abundance to those who did not have. Her faith in Jehovah guided her and she knew it was her mission to spread the gospel to all. She knew that to God we are all equal in His sight. She believed that a kind word was food and fuel for the soul, and she never tired of sharing and spreading words of joy and encouragement to others. She did what needed to be done, despite the odds that existed.
Rosie loved to dance, travel, cook, celebrate with her family, and fellowship with her congregation. Her heart and home open to all, she never met a stranger.
She was employed with Bob’s Candy Kitchen, and retired from Piggly Wiggly as the Assistant Deli Baker Manager.
She was an exceptional woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter, Witness, and friend. Her light can not be extinguished or dimmed. Her legacy will live on forever.
