Rose Ann Robison, 63, a resident of Sedro-Woolley, passed away Sunday morning, January 19, 2014 in Mount Vernon, Washington.
She was born January 14, 1951 in Stockton, California. Rosie has lived in Skagit County for the past 23 years, and considered this her home. Before settling here, she and her husband lived in California and Nevada, but were the happiest here in Skagit County.
Rosie worked all her life. As a young lady, she worked at a glass plant in California, and other jobs over the years. After moving here, she worked at Alf Christianson’s Seed for several years and made some great friends there, whom she loved dearly. She then started at Wal-Mart in Mount Vernon. She loved working there and always wanted to go back, but her illness kept her from doing so. She made friends there whom she considered her Wal-Mart family. One of them was like a sister, Susan Hayes and her husband, Steve. They were her best friends. The family thanks them for being there for Rose.
Rosie had a love for animals, and had two beautiful cats. She was a happy go lucky person; she never met a stranger. She loved passing time by playing video games, crocheting and just spending time with her family and friends.
Rosie is survived by her son, Brian Peacock, sister, Christine Dias, granddaughter, Kaitlyn Peacock, all of Stockton, CA; her half-brother, Jim Barr, of Walnut Creek, CA; her special Washington family, niece, Lisa and her husband, Tim Medici, special great nieces Cassie and Leah Medici, and sister-in-law, Fran Slaughter, and other family in various states. Rosie will be deeply missed always and forever.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jim Robison, her parents, a sister and two nephews.
The family would like to thank her special caregiver, Jolene Benson, who took great care of Rosie.
A Celebration of Life will be planned for Spring of this year. Share your memories of Rosie and sign the online guest register at www.lemleychapel.com.
