Roseanna graduated from the Fairfield County Public School District. She joined White Oak Baptist Church #1 at an early age, where she would enter the doors with thanksgiving and with a praise of adoration for God. Roseanna loved her family and friends dearly and she especially loved spending time with her grandson, Jervon, who affectionally gave her the nickname “Pumpkin”.Roseanna was adored by her grandchildren and cherished by her children. Roseanna served faithfully in her career as a Nurse and she retired from Fairfield Health Care Center in Ridgeway, S.C. She loved her patients and cared for each one as if they were her very own family member.
She is survived by her children: Ernest (Doris) Barber, Ridgeway, S.C. Thomas (Beatrice) Barber, Rock Hill, S.C.; Norman (Jeanette) Barber, McCalla, AL; Robert ( Vanessa) Barber, Aiken, SC; Gussie (Celess) Montgomery, South Windsor, CT; Marie (Michael) Peay, Columbia, SC; Helen (Alphonso) Richard, Fairburn, GA; and Melissa (Maxie) Outen, Columbia, SC.

There are no words to describe how much she was loved, and we are comforted by the words she frequently would share with our family, “Everyday I’m walking closer with Jesus”. Mom is now resting in the presence of God and peace abides with her. Amen.
