Obituary - Rozanne Warwick
Last updated 7/2/2015 at 8:43pm
Rozanne Warwick, 72, died of complications from Alzheimer's while the sun was rising June 29, 2015.
While betrayed by her body and mind, her spirit was present in the empathy she showed with the pat on the arm or a hug to reassure those around her.
Rozanne was born in McAllen Texas, to Leon (deceased) and Annabel (deceased) Edwards, who, with her younger sisters Linda and Janice, were transferred all over southern Texas with the Border Patrol before a final move to Havre, Montana. There she went to college, met her husband Vance of 52 years and started a family including her children Helen, Jill and Nathan, to whom she imparted a love of thunderstorms, pizza and a pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps attitude and many dogs who gained too much weight from her numerous treats. She also spoiled her three grandchildren Allysha, Taylor and Olivia and got to meet the latest addition to her the family, her great-grandson Matthew.
For retirement, Rozanne and Vance spent six-plus years with Youth With A Mission, a Hawaiian and an Asian mission outreach before returning to Montana. They settled in Helena to be closer to family.
Though there were many struggles, Rozanne's spirit and attitude continued to shine as she would weave, sew, craft, cook, clean, walk the dog, visit family and friends and pray. She finished well. And at the end, she knew the love that her family, friends and Christ all have for her.
