Ms. Rosie Wiseman Rader, age 89, died on Thursday June 9, 2022, at the Candler County Hospital. At the time of her death she was comforted by her son Mike and his wife Freda who together held her hands and rubbed her head as they told her how much her family loved her as she peacefully passed without pain, into the arms of Jesus. She was born in Deerfield, Virginia and graduated from Wilson Memorial High School in 1951. Following high school, she married and moved to Waynesboro, Virginia where she raised her two children and worked various production jobs. Rosie later began working with The District Home as a CNA, where she was known for her love and compassion. She retired following many years of dedicated service.

Rosie was a member of Wayside Baptist Church in Crimora, Virginia for many years. She moved to Brooklet in 2018, to be near her son Michael and his family. She had attended Trinity Baptist Church in Nevils.
