In memory of
Rosemary S. Atkinson
Rosemary S. Atkinson, age 91, of Trussville, AL, peacefully passed away on Sunday, March 22, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, James K. Atkinson, Sr., sister, Valeria S. Golden, parents Terrell and Mattie M. Smith. She is survived by her two sons, James K., Jr. (Teresa), Wayne L. (Terri); 5 grandchildren, who all knew her as "Mimi," Stephanie L. McConnell (Adam), Jama A. Messner (Johnathan), Daly A. Green (Derrick), Stacy M. Wooten (Keith), Stephanie M. Wilkerson (Tyler); 9 great-grandchildren, Tristan Fralick, Noah, Savannah, and Madison Messner, Hollis Green, Garrett and Alyssa Wooten, Maverick and Ellie Rae Wilkerson; and sister, Beverly S. Seirsdale. Rosemary was born in Birmingham, AL, in 1928. She graduated from Woodlawn High School at the age of 16. Rosemary was a charter member of Deerfoot Baptist Church, formerly 85th Street Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday School for over 70 years, sang in the choir, was an active member of WMU, and served on numerous church committees throughout the years. She was also a member of the Samford Auxiliary. Rosemary was a professional seamstress, loved to crochet, cook, and prepared meals for shut-ins of her church family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who truly cherished every moment spent with her family. Rosemary faithfully served God throughout her life, living every day with gentle compassion, steadfast care, and spiritual nurture. She will be missed dearly by family and friends. Due to the current health and safety mandates, a private, familial burial was held at Mt. Olive Cemetery. A memorial service honoring Rosemary will be held at a later date at Deerfoot Baptist Church. The family suggests all memorials in her honor be given to Deerfoot Baptist Church 5450 Mt. Olive Church Rd. Trussville, AL 35173.
