Rose, Dr. James "Jim" Carrington

November 27, 1942 - October 8, 2021

Dr. James (Jim) Carrington Rose entered Heaven with his Lord and Savior, joining his father and mother on October 8, 2021. Jim was a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine for 39 years. He accomplished an extraordinary measure of academic publications and grants and established a prominent research program in Perinatal Biology. Over the lifetime of his professional career, he educated a generation of students, residents, and fellows both in the U.S. and abroad. More importantly, Jim was a prayer warrior, covering his family in prayer each and every day. Jim was a faithful member of the River Oaks Community Church, where he also served as a Deacon. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Cathy. He is also survived by his children, George (Kelly), Kathryn (Ed), and Joy (Sam); and his grandchildren, whom he adored, Lucy, Sally, TJ, Ella, Jake, Smith, Maddi, Tristan, and Nathanael. He modeled for all he met Mark 12:30-31, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this, Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these." Jim loved his wife, children, grandchildren, jazz, good books, and Folly Beach. He was a humble servant, mentor, and friend.

We will celebrate Jim's life on Friday, October 15th at 4:30 p.m. at River Oaks Community Church, 1855 Lewisville Clemmons Rd, Clemmons, NC 27012. The family will receive friends following the service.
