Rosie Mae Sims

September 2, 1928 ~ July 31, 2022 (age 93)


Rosie Mae (Lipscomb) Sims, daughter of the late Riley G. Lipscomb and Millie Jane (Norris) Lipscomb, was born on September 2, 1928, in Chesnee, South Carolina. She departed this life on Sunday, July 31, 2022. She was preceded in death by her brother M.C. Lipscomb.

Rosie was married to the late Furmon E. Sims Sr, on March 27, 1948, and the young couple relocated to Cincinnati shortly thereafter. To their union was born one son, Furmon E. Sims, Jr. and one daughter, Rosetta (Sims) Alexander.

She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Mikes Creek Baptist Church in Gaffney, South Carolina. Rosie was a long-time member of Greater Liberty Baptist Church. She was an active member of the Satisfied Seniors and enjoyed travelling with the group on their annual bus tours. She was passionate about her dedication to our Lord and rarely missed a Sunday service, even after her health started to decline. The highlight of her week was when the church bus picked her up every Sunday.

She was a loving mother and role model to her children and grandchildren and opened her home and heart to any child who needed her guidance.

Rosie was employed by University Hospital where she received numerous accolades for her dedication and professionalism throughout her career. She retired in 1997 after 31 years.

Rosie loved to travel, and her favorite pastime was reading, working crossword puzzles and talking on the phone. She developed a passion for sewing, becoming an accomplished seamstress. After her health declined, she had a new-found love of dancing, and she could be seen teaching others in her senior living community how to dance. She became known as the "dancing queen" by the staff at Wickshire Senior Living.

She leaves to cherish her memories: one son, Furmon E. Sims Jr, of Cincinnati, Ohio; one daughter, Rosetta Alexander of Summerville, South Carolina, and one stepdaughter, Danielle Sims of Cincinnati, Ohio: 13 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, 5 great-great grandchildren; her very special "sister cousin" Oleama Jones, of Detroit, Michigan; numerous nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
