Roselyn had many loves in her lifetime, including the Southeast Arkansas Foster Grandparent Program, traveling with her friends, her family, and spending time with her six grandchildren.

She also leaves behind six grandchildren, Rory Chandler, Rose Chandler, Elizabeth Jane Chandler, Georgia Chandler, Henry Busby, and Clara Busby, as well as beloved brothers in law, sisters in law, nieces, and nephews who very much adored their “RoRo.”

During her lifetime, Roselyn was a proud member of the First Baptist Church of Monticello, AR. She leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, a zest for life, and a long list of treasured friends that will forever be touched by her unselfish and kind heart.
