Rose Marie Pierce, 87, entered eternity on December 11, 2018, in time to enjoy and be a part of Heaven’s celebration of the birth of her Savior, Jesus Christ. Rose was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 63 years, Jimmy, and by her grandson, Jeremy Hottle. She is survived by her three children, Kandis Gaines (Alan), Judith Oldham (Mike), and Mickey Pierce (Olay), and her two grandchildren, Matt Gaines and Ashley Gaines. Rose was passionately supportive and fiercely protective of her family. She put her entire being into taking care of and making a home for her husband and her children, and would move heaven and earth to ensure every need was met and pretty much every desire was satisfied. Rose’s love and devotion to her family was the consummate example of sacrificial love, and her children will always remember to thank and glorify our gracious God that she was our first best friend.
