Obituary for Mrs. Rose C. Blake

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Rose Marie Childs was born to Lula B. and John L. Childs on February 13, 1956. Fourth born of seven siblings; Dorothy Ann Jones, Willie James (Carolyn) Childs, Eddie Charles Childs, John L. Childs, Ann (Wayman) Jessie, and Randy Childs. Rose Marie was raised in Little Poplar Springs Baptist Church and graduated from Unadilla High School in 1974. She attended and graduated as Valedictorian from Branell College in 1988. Rose married Darryl Anthony Blake Sr. in 1985. They have three children; Antoine Dorrell Childs, Darryl Anthony Blake Jr. (Bridgette), and Deanna Antoinette Blake. They were also blessed with two granddaughters; Brookelyne Cymone Cain Childs and Baylee Camora Cain Childs, whom she loved dearly. Rose diligently worked as a seamstress in several sewing factories. She later became an employee of Georgia Department of Revenue where she was promoted to Mailroom Supervisor. While hard at work with her occupation, Rose was a faithful and loyal servant of God at Central United Methodist Church where she ushered, taught Sunday school, and lead the prayer and praise team. Rose retired in 2017 after 27 years and 4 months. She continued the Lord’s work by serving and providing aid to her elderly in-laws, became an advocate to cancer patients, and a spokesperson for cancer awareness. Rose will be loved and remembered by all of her many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and everyone else she ever met.
