Rosa Lee Rhodes
June 5, 1924-August 26, 2020
August 26, 2020, the Lord called home our beloved Rosa Lee (Ye Ye, Momzie) at the great age of 96 years, at the Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview, Illinois. What a wonderful, full life! What a Blessing! Rosa was born June 5, 1924 to Amos Finch and Luticia Swanier-Finch in Richton, Mississippi.
Rosa Lee had ten children and two stepdaughters. However, her precious grand-daughter Dawn was her heart. She raised Dawn from a young child until she went away to college.
Rosa Lee's loving memories will forever linger in the hearts of her son: Dennis Rhodes Lewis and daughter Cynthia Fredericks-Reed of Evanston, Illinois, James Burton Hellams Jr (Lisa), of Atlanta, Georgia; daughters, Vernice Green-Wilks of Chicago, Illinois; Shirley Fredericks Gordon (Leotis), Aurora, Illinois; Jean Hancock-Smith and Cathy Harris (Greg) of Greenville, South Carolina, Marsha Thomas of Gainesville, Florida and Pam Haynes of Trenton, Florida.
She also leaves to mourn her loving nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, along with a host of relatives and friends. Too many to list.
