Aletta Faye Rose
Aletta Faye Rose, age 77, of Leachville, passed from this life, Saturday Aug. 24, 2013 at the Flo and Phil Jones Hospice House in Jonesboro. Born at Arbyrd, Mo., she was the daughter of the late Vernon "Cotton" and Johnnie Jackson Barnes and was a 1954 graduate of Arbyrd High School. She had been a Leachville resident for most of her life and worked many years at the former Brown Shoe Company in Leachville. She and her late husband of 55 years, Mr. Floyd Rose, owned and operated Rose's Grocery for several years where she was known and loved by countless customers for her wonderful cooking, and above all, her kind and gracious spirit. Aletta's desire in life was to love her Lord with all her heart, soul, mind, and strength. She served her Lord and Savior for many years at the Second Baptist Church in Leachville through teaching and loving children of all ages, and loving and feeding pastors and their families. She gave freely of her resources, time, and of herself to friends, neighbors, and often times, strangers. For the past four years she had worshipped at the First Baptist Church, where she attended the Rebecca Sunday School Class with her treasured friends.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by two great-granddaughters; Adalyn Faith Rose, daughter of Jonas and Kortnie Rose, and an angel baby daughter of Josh and Lindsey Rose.
