Rosa Anna Reed, 89, of Fortson, GA. passed away on Sunday, July 8, 2018.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, July 13, 2018 in the Edgewood Hall of Striffler-Hamby Mortuary, 4071 Macon Road, Columbus, GA, with a burial to follow at Main Post Cemetery, Ft. Benning, GA. A reception and visitation will be held on Thursday evening from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Rosa was born in Kuetzberg, Germany, to Adam and Anna Albert on February 27, 1929. Mother of two sons, devoted homemaker and Army wife, Mrs. Reed loved four things more than anything else in the world: 1. family and her soap operas, 2. knitting, 3. cooking, and 4. gardening. Rosa was always going 90 to nothing, she was a hard worker and took care of everyone else, but when she wasn’t, you could find her enjoying a cold beer. We will always remember her determination, wisdom, and loving nature. We will forever be grateful to her for all she has shared and bestowed upon her family.

Rosa was preceded in death by three husbands, James Tressler, Paul Pevitt and Thomas Reed.

Survivors include her two sons, Dr. Robert Tressler (Lori) and granddaughters, Sarah Tressler and Laura Costanza, John Pevitt (Kim) and grandson, Zachary Pevitt (Chelsea) and granddaughter, Lily Pevitt, several great grandchildren and numerous siblings.

Rosa was one of the most faithful members of the Monday morning bible study at the Edgewood senior center. She was a tremendous greeter and encourager always making everyone feel welcome. She also brought snacks and special goodies that she had prepared. She was a great blessing to us all.
Rosa and Tom were wonderful Christian friends, in many ways, to my wife and I. They were helpful and gave of themselves in many ways. I count it as one of my greatest blessings to have know both Rosa and Tom.
