Gaye Rose

September 25, 1921 — June 27, 2016

Gaye Pauline (Brinegar) Rose, 94, peacefully exited this world on Monday June 27, 2016, at 4:28 PM. She was at home with loving family.
Born September 25, 1921, in Green Sulphur Springs, she was one of ten children born to Jasper Allen and Lora Amelia (Williams) Brinegar.
Growing up in the Hinton and Shockley Hill areas provided her a wealth of mountain wisdom and strength which served her well as she raised, nurtured and taught her children and generations beyond. She and her husband of 64 years, E. R. Rose, made their home in White Oak.
She anchored her faith in Jesus as a member of the Church of Christ. A devout Christian, a dedicated wife, a loving mother, a teacher of all younger women she was respected by all who knew her fondly as "Mrs. Rose".
Mrs. Rose was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a son, Eddie Russell Rose, three brothers, Curtis, Alphon, and Golden Brinegar, two sisters, Glenda Jean Epler and Goldie Sears, two grandsons Gregory Allen and Billy Rose.
Those left to mourn the loss yet celebrate the memories will be many congregations of the Lord's church, multiple neighbors, and the surviving family as follows: four sons Tom (Karetta) of Beckley, Claude (Donna) of Princeton, John (Melinda) of Shady Spring, James of White Oak, three daughters, A. Jo (Ron) Kress of Vienna, WV, Loretta (William) Fairchild of Garland , TX, Diana (Dick) Powell of Stockport, OH, four sisters Glenna Coleman, Geneva Breen, Gladys Akers, and Cecilia Gail Martin, 14 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren. Mrs. Rose's influence and teaching will carry on very well---as she wished...
Funeral services will be held at noon on Friday, July 1, 2016 at the Ronald Meadows Funeral Parlors Chapel with Evangelist John Rose, Jr. officiating with assistance from Ryan Scott. Burial will follow in the family cemetery on Shockley Hill.
Friends may call from 7:00 - 9:00 P.M. on Thursday at the funeral parlors. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.

Arrangements are by the Ronald Meadows Funeral Parlors of Hinton.
