Rozella was one of my first supervisors when I started at State Farm back in 1968. I will always remember her as the one to go to with any problem. She knew the unit from the inside out
She was the best, and a true friend.

I came for a visit when Aunt Rozella lived on Bell street. She cooked out steak on the grill and organized a card party. I stayed with her several times. When I travel to Illinois, I stop to see her. This was a loving, wonderful,giving person! She is going to be missed by so many people, especially me! Im sorry your family couldn't be with you in your time of need. My heart breaks over losing you! Big hugs to the family, and to my greatest, great Aunt!🙏🙏🙏

Mom had a lovely service on May 29. It was a beautiful day and the casket she selected when she planned her service was Mary Kay pink! I am thankful for her long life.

Granny or Grandma she liked to be called. I will miss you coming to get a rice krisby treat from me or eating some chocolate. You were a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers go out to Lori and her family. Thank you for letting us take care of her.
RIP Janice Kindred
