In her youth she attended Mount Sinai School in Tchula, MS. Upon completing her education, she married George Brown with whom she produced two adorable children, Rosie Barrett and Robert Lee Brown. Having suffered the painful loss of her spouse early on, she later married Jessie Young, with whom she remained for many years. In the early 1980's she gave her life to Christ and joined Rock of Ages Church of God & Christ, subsequently joining El-Bethel Bible Way Apostolic Church in Tchula, MS, where she became a dedicated and longstanding member.
Rosie Lee enjoyed countless pastimes. However, her favorite included praying for and spending quality time with her family, cooking, baking, and faithfully attending church. She loved to entertain, both singing and piano-playing at her church for more than twenty years. A natural nurturer, she worked for several years as a health-care provider in Chicago, IL. She also cooked for various establishments in and around Tchula, MS.
