Obituary for Rosalie Washington

Rosalie Washington was born on August 24, 1925 in Sumter, South Carolina, daughter of the late John Lopez and Sarah Albert. When she was two years old, Rosalie lived in Linden, New Jersey. She was educated in the Linden Public School system and graduated from Linden High School.

She worked as a Machine Operator at Atlantic Romper in Linden for many years.

As a member, Rosalie was very involved in First Baptist Church in Linden for many years.
Rosalie loved to travel back to her hometown Sumter, South Carolina along through Bishopville to see her relatives. Rosalie’s family will reminisce over one of her best dishes, candied yams during holidays. She was our dearest aunt but like a mother to us all.

She was a warm, friendly woman who was well liked by all who knew her. Rosalie was well respected by her neighbors and community for more than forty years. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to those close to her. Rosalie had a beautiful connection with her close friend who she truly adored.

During her spare time, Rosalie enjoyed shopping at her favorite department stores, J. C. Penney, Sterns and Bambergers all in Woodbridge Mall in Edison.

On Friday, May 11, 2018, Rosalie Washington answered the Master’s call.

She was predeceased by her husband, James Washington in 1982.

Rosalie Washington leaves to cherish precious memories, her devoted sister, Catherine Peeples; loving nephew/caregiver, Namon Peeples; nephews: John Albert and Nathaniel Peeples; nieces: Raynetta Carter, Joyce Moore and Elane Davis; beloved best friends: Catherine Givens and Ruth Jenkins both of Linden, New Jersey; and a host of great-nieces and nephews, dear relatives and friends.
