Roslyn was loved by many and will be missed by many people, including us. She and Leon were close friends of Neal's parents and we shared many happy memories of them both while attending Westover Baptist Church with most of the Hailey and Williams families back in "The good ol' days" of our youth. We send our love and prayers out to her entire family. Heaven has certainly gained another Saint!

One of the sweetest ladies ever. Many happy memories with her and the “Rockers” and some of our crazy trips together. She had a beautiful voice and was always ready to sing. Every time I hear “Stagger Lee” I think of her. We danced many hours to her rendition of this at the RBHF.
Condolences to the family who she truly loved and talked about so much.
With much love
Kara Stewart
