Aimee Rosetta Mess

Troutdale - Aimee Rosetta (McGuire) Mess passed away in the comfort of her granddaughters home in Troutdale, Oregon January 2, 2021 at age 92. She had previously lived in the Salem area for over 45 years. Rosetta was born to Gladney and Carrie McGuire in Kaw City, Oklahoma on May 13, 1928. She completed high school and attended two years of college in Missouri, later marrying Leva Brinlee and raising 5 beautiful children.

Rosetta worked at Fairview training center where she was able to retire --- well I guess you could call it that. She continued working in the Salem area at various schools and businesses.

Rosetta was very active in her church, First Free Will Baptist, often providing home baked treats and even teaching Sunday School. She was an avid quilter, loved her family, shopping, visiting the coast, and spoiling her dog Princess.

Rosetta married Robert Mess in 1992 and was blessed with three more adult step children who were embraced into the larger family.

Rosetta was preceded in death by her parents, husband Robert Mess, daughter Leval Minten, sons Gary Brinlee and Douglas Mess, and brothers Ralph, George, Ken, Tom and Rick McGuire. She is survived by sons Larry (Barb) Brinlee, Dan (Sandi) Brinlee, Steve (Kathy) Brinlee, and Robert Mess and daughter Laura (Floyd) Scott, as well as 64 grandchildren.

A viewing will be held at City View Funeral Home (390 Hoyt St. S, Salem, Oregon 97302) from 10am-12:30pm Saturday, January 16th. Family and friends are welcome, but asked to please respectfully follow COVID guidelines.

I always liked Aunt Rosetta. She'd always say "I know who you are...Alan! " it was our running joke.

I am so glad to have had Rosetta as my step mother. She was such a loving, caring and giving person. I will really miss our visits, she would tell me about her life, it was interesting, hard and sometimes very sad but she was always full of love. God Bless you Mom. Love you.
