They enjoyed many years of wintering in Texas. Throughout their lives they enjoyed big band music and were avid ballroom dancers. When they married RosaLee became a member of the Fairview Reformed Church, where she was active in the Women’s Guild. She enjoyed helping prepare and serve many community group dinners at the church, as well as baking dozens of cinnamon rolls for the church’s annual Christmas bazaars. In her later years she attended Maples Mill United Methodist Church, the church she joined as a girl. A private family funeral service will be held at Foster Cemetery in rural Fairview. There will be no visitation. Oaks-Hines Funeral Home and Crematory in Canton has been entrusted with arrangements. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Maples Mill United Methodist Church.
