Rose Marie "Rush" Nelson, 80, was born May 30, 1939 in Tallahassee, Florida to the late Lula Marie Murray and the late Wesley Rush. She attended Dasher High School in Valdosta, GA. Rose accepted Christ at an early age. She was a faithful member of Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Center in Lake Park, GA under the leadership of Pastor Reginald Benjamin, where she served as church mother for numerous years. She was a dedicated and faithful member until her death.
Rose was employed by Moody Air Force Base Commissary and Denny's Restaurant in Valdosta for a number of years. Her enjoyment came from her family, especially her grandchildren and her great grands.
In addition to her parents, Rose was preceded in death by her sisters, Dorothy Lee Rush, and Cynthia Ann Murray Evans; nieces, Rhonda Murray, and Vonda Murray; and her stepfather, Richard Murray, Sr.
She leaves to cherish the many precious memories her dedicated, devoted, and caring daughter, Lula Diane (Edward) Freeman, who is her one and only baby; her granddaughters, Natarsha (Reggie) Cobb, and Ingrid (Nicholas) Harden; great grandchildren, Damian White, Raneisha Cobb, Kaleb Harden, and Kendall Harden; her sisters, Jeraldine (Willie) Houston, Virgil Ree Dumas, and Angela (John) Haddin; her brothers, Richard Murray, Alexander James (Pat) Murray, and Eddie (Jennifer) Murray, Virgil Lee (Mattie) Murray, Nathaniel (Dot) Rush, and Alonzo (Wilma) Rush; step daughters, Sheilda Ann (Charles) Miller, and Melvie Ruth Maxwell; sister-in-law, Beatrice Stoney; special friends, Louise Harden and Dorothy Hughley; and a host of other relatives, cousins, and friends.
Special thanks to Rescare Homecare and staff, Hospice of South Georgia and staff, and Dr. John Anderson and staff.
