Obituary

"God knew the road was getting rough, the hills are hard to climb, He reached down with His loving arms open wide and said, “Come home and rest.”

Rosie Lee (Brooks) Perkins was born on May 9, 1934, in Davidson County, Nashville, Tennessee to the late Tom and Mary Brooks. She departed this life on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, surrounded by her loving husband and children.

She was educated in the Nashville Public School System.

Rosie accepted Christ at an early age and united with St. Luke Primitive Baptist Church. She later united with the Greater Saint John Baptist Church under the Pastorate of Reverend F. M. Spence. Later on, she joined First Baptist Church South Inglewood under the pastorate of Reverend T. E. Sweeney Sr. She was a devoted church member and served as president of the Senior Usher Ministry and continued to serve as an Usher until her illness prevented her from doing so.

Sister Perkins commitment to serving the Lord extended to the BM&E Mass Choir where she fulfilled many roles; serving as a parent advisor, feeding and entertaining the choir members. She loved to cook. She was a very loving and devoted wife and mother. She loved the Lord and her family.

In 1952, Rosie (Brooks) Perkins was united in holy wedlock to Deacon Milton Perkins. This union was blessed with five children.
