Ash, Rosie Mae

July 20, 1930 - June 14, 2017


Rosie was born on July 20, 1930 in Macon, MO and passed away on June 14, 2017 in Dallas, TX.

She is remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Aptly named, her rosy disposition shone brightly through her ever-present smile.

She attended the Missouri School for the Deaf in Fulton, Missouri where she met her husband, Gene. They relocated to Topeka, Kansas where Rosie worked at Crosby’s Department Store and at Sears for many years. Her talent as a seamstress was appreciated in both her professional and personal lives.

She is survived by three daughters and their husbands; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Her love for cooking and beautiful smile will continue on in our memories. Despite our sadness at her passing, we rejoice in the fact that she has joined her beloved husband as they will remain together forever.

Rosie is preceded in death by her husband, Amos “Gene” Ash. His obituary can be found here.

ARIA Cremation Service & Funeral Home

Katie, Jeannie, and Kim,

I’m so sorry about the loss of Aunt Rosie. I’ve had so much losses in the past 2 years and hate to add her to them. I’ve been trying to get in touch with you guys. Just had the feeling that I needed to. Now I know why. I hope you are at peace.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
