Obituary For Rosalyn Bennett Sapp

Rosalyn Bennett Sapp departed this life on Monday, June 28, 2021. She is the daughter of the late Tom and Ruby Bennett. Rosalyn was born June 19, 1946 in Augusta, Georgia. She was a faithful member of First Providence Baptist Church in North Augusta, South Carolina. She graduated from Lucy Craft Laney High School in Augusta, Georgia in 1964 and continued her education at Paine College. Rosalyn was captain of the Lady’s basketball team at Lucy Craft Laney High School during her senior year. She also served as the Assistant Secretary of her graduating class.

She was a Director at First Providence Learning & Development Center, employed at Touch By An Angel, Quickway Florist, and the Tri-Development Center of Aiken County until her retirement in 2021. Rosalyn’s extracurricular activities led her to serve as a member of the Judicial Foster Care Review Panel for the Juvenile Court System, work for the Richmond County Board of Elections, and serve as the Secretary of the Augusta Chapter of the NAACP. ​Rosalyn had a giving spirit and always poured into her family and friends.
