Rosalie Aabel Davis, 85 of Austin, passed away on November 5, 2019. She was born on December 8, 1933 in Minden, Nebraska to Marius and Ethel (Youngson) Aabel. Rosalie worked in Civil Service for 35 years and as a monitor for Austin ISD for 18 years until her retirement. She loved spending her free time playing cards, Chinaso in particular, and watching sports, especially swimming. She also liked to listen and dance to Elvis Presley music. She enjoyed adding to her collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia and sharing her love of the "the King" with her friends and family. Rosalie's favorite colors were pink and purple and just about everyone close to her knew it! The holidays were her favorite time of year, but she loved Halloween most of all. Perhaps more than anything, Rosalie loved and treasured her family and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She touched so many lives during her 85 years, 68 of which she was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing her.

The family will be accepting guests from 2:00pm-4:00pm on Saturday, November 16, 2019, at Cook Walden Forest Oaks Funeral Home. Additional services and burial will take place at a later date with Layton Craig Funeral Home in Minden, Nebraska.

Rosalie is survived by her husband of 68 years, Jack Davis; sons, Brian Davis (Maria T. Davis), Mark Davis, and Bradley Davis (Glynis H. Davis); grandchildren, Jason Davis, Jennifer Davis, Sara Davis, Susan Davis, Joshua Davis, and Karen Davis; great-grandchildren, Darius Davis, Deshawn Jacobs, Evan Martinez, Alanna Martinez, Alexis Martinez, Espranza Medina, Eddie Garcia, Kiera Satterfield, and Tamia Davis; and great-great-grandchildren, Azariyah Davis and Reelie Davis.

Rosie and I worked together for several years. She was my bus monitor for, serving special needs children.

Rosie was a generous kind, highly respectable, loving, considerate lady to say the least. I love this lady for what she believed and lived for. She was deeply committed to her job and family.

She read stories to the children on the bus,
and played audio tapes as she turned the pages of the book. We decorated the bus for the holidays so the children could feel the purpose and reality of it all.

We kidded with each other, joking and laughing so hard that our ribs hurt. We shared laughter and on occasions we shed a tear in concern for people in general including our most precious cargo, the children in our care.

Rosie is to be commended for her devotion to the children, her job and her family. I could always depend on Rosie, knowing she was always there and could handle any situation that might arise on or off the bus. She was very well loved and appreciated by all. She spoke her mind and stood, honestly, by what she believed to be the truth.

Rosie always had some sort of treat or snack in her bag, that came in handy in many situations.

I could talk for hours about the Goodness and Love that Rosie exhibited and practiced. I cared for because she was a class act and a true friend and I have enjoyed this lady since we met at AISD. She is deserving to be considered the best employee the school district has had the opportunity to employ.

Rosalie 'Rosie' Davis, I will greatly miss you and remember you in all the day’s to come. You have finished the course and you have kept the faith...Your journey is complete and God has called you to your reward and rest.

I have no doubt that you are eternally in Gods presence, so remember me and save me a place at The Lords Table of Grace, because I fully intend to see and laugh with you again.

RIP My Dear Friend, Rosalie Davis.
