Rose-Marie worked in the tobacco fields during high school during the summer. After high school, she was a waitress for 5yrs, after which she became a stay at home mother for her children and a babysitter for others, before becoming an employee for close to 19 years at the Orange Walmart.

She was predeceased by her father, Donald H. Jillson, a sister, Alice Hunter (Jillson), and several others.
She was such a caring and loving woman. Always putting everyone else before herself, offering everything she had to help others and never asking for anything in return. Whether you were family, friend, or just an associate, she treated everyone with love and respect.
Rose-Marie, you were the rock in our lives, and the light that guided us. We all Love You, and we are all going to miss you. Rest In The sweetest of Peace And fly through the Heavens above.
There are no calling hours.
