In Loving

Rosa E. Roberts

September 20, 1932-July 3, 2022

Rosa E. Roberts, 89, of Richmond, departed this world for Heaven on July 3, 2022.

Rosa retired from UPS (formerly Overnite Transportation) at the age of 65. She enjoyed seeing new places and took many trips with her family, friends, and church. She was a long time member of New Bridge Baptist Church where she always felt loved and welcomed. Her church family, the friendships she made, and the love she had for the Lord gave her strength and carried her through many trials she faced in her life. Rosa was an amazing mother and dedicated friend. She loved surrounding herself with family and friends, and felt truly blessed by both. Rosa could lift your spirits with a heartfelt call or a thoughtful card. Her friendship and love were genuine and sincere.

She enjoyed music, socializing, and always (without fail) love to laugh and cut-up with those around her. She was dearly loved and will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.

Rosa was preceded in death by her parents, William and Lillian Eason, siblings, J. Edward Eason, Dorothy E. Barnes (GW), Jean E. Brantley (Ray), W. Randolph Eason (Dorothy), and Margie E. Crumpler. She was also preceded in death by her son, Stephen A. Roberts. Rosa is survived by her daughter Sheila L. Vest and her husband Kevin, grandsons, Holden Z. Vest, Donovan C. Vest and his wife Jean, and great grandson, Malachi R. Vest. As well as many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

A “Celebration of Life” Service will be held at her daughter and son–n-law’s home in September. Details to be announced at a later date.
