Rosalie Huff Obituary

Born March 1, 1937 - Passed away on September 8, 2017.

Rosalie Huff is preceded in death by her loving husband Arnold Huff; two grandsons Aaron Jacob Huff and Brett James Holley Jr. as well as her parents Paul and Vera Cain.

She is survived by son Kenneth Huff and her daughter Alice Ann Holley as well as two grandchildren, Christopher Huff and Sarah Holley Becker and six siblings. She was also a proud great grandmother to four great grandchildren: Westin Kenneth Huff, Casey James Becker, Cadence Leanne Becker and Caroline James Perkins.

Rosalie was the third born of seven Cain children: Larry, Paul, Rosalie, Paula, Patty, Mary, and Reba. She was born in Octavia, Oklahoma on March 1, 1937 to her young parents, Paul and Vera Cain whom later migrated to Northern California from Oklahoma. Her father, a contractor, built a house on Bridge Street in Yuba City and she soon became the "girl next door" to her future husband Arnold, who lived with his mother Dorthy "Doss" Gambrel on University Avenue. She attended school in Yuba City and married Arnold Huff and had two children. Rosalie was a survivor of a severe burn accident during a pregnancy from which she lost her unborn child and barely survived herself. Rosalie was an avid gardener and reader. She was honest and hardworking. She especially loved her names sakes "roses" that she cared for diligently in her yard on Crest Drive in Yuba City. She was quick witted and had a soft kindness combined with a sharp "don't mess with me attitude". Rosalie never remarried after her husband's passing and she quietly cared for her parents, children, grandchildren and friends. She eventually lost her quiet fight with breast cancer on September 8, 2017. She was proud to tell her loved ones that she may not have done everything right but she always did her own way. She is laid to rest in the Sutter cemetery near her husband. Engraved on her headstone is her life's mantra " I did it my way".
