Rosietta Brown Holliman

September 20, 1930 — November 6, 2015

Rosietta Brown Holliman began her journey through life on September 20, 1930, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She accepted Christ as a little girl and was a member of St. Paul AME Church. She attended Peake High School and formed lasting friendships. She was a doting mother, who taught her children self respect and respect of others. Her goal in life was to produce memories and experiences that her children would forever remember. She relocated to Dallas, Texas in the 70’s and united with the Bullock Chapel AME Church family where she served on the Mother’s Board. She worked several jobs throughout her life and was no stranger to hard work. Rosietta loved children and worked as a teacher’s assistant for the Dallas Independent School District. She was so excited about her work and generously poured herself into the youth the crossed her path. She was a firm believer in supporting every child and young person in any way she could. She later moved to California and resided with Carolyn and her family. Due to her declining health she became a resident at Reche Canyon Rehab in Colton, California. She was a bubbly, smiling inspiration to both the administrations and staff. In her 85th season of life she passed quietly into the Lord’s embrace on Friday, November 6, 2015. To know her was to love her and she will be deeply missed. But mingled with the sorrow have been smiles, hugs and laughs because of the cherished memories she leaves behind. She was preceded in death by her parents, Dona and Maude Eva McNeal Brown; her husband; her children, Cassie Jean Brown and Terrell Terry Moore; two sisters, Mildred Simmons and Jewel Williams. Rosietta leaves her children: Annie Joyce (Archie Hawkins) of Arkadelphia; Carolyn Hill of Moreno Valley, CA; Tommy Brown of Dallas, TX; James Charles Rascoe of Dallas, TX; 18 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren; her sisters, Annie B. Hill, Hazel Bailey, Francis Middleton, Joetta Tatum, Flossie Summerville, Eva Hill all of Arkadelphia and Melva J. White of Marietta, CA. Her love and sweet spirit will live on with several nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. A home going service will be held at St. Paul AME Church with Rev. James Langley, officiating at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 20, 2015 and the interment will be in Spring Hill Cemetery. A memorial service was held on Thursday, November 11, 2015 at Montecito Funeral Home in Colton, CA.
