Rose Simmons Bryant

March 19, 1949 ~ June 20, 2022 (age 73)



Rose Simmons Bryant 73, of 7616 Disappearing Trail in Roseboro passed away Monday June 20, 2022 at her home. 

Rose was born March 19, 1949 in Sampson County to the late Eunice and Junius Simmons. She worked for Dodger Industries, Inc. in Clinton as a seamstress. Rose enjoyed going to the stock yard on Thursdays and shopping at Roses and Walmart. She could often be found doing large print word puzzles of any kind and made it a habit to date them. Rose loved cleaning her home. She was very curious about her kitchen, making sure nothing was out of place. Clothes were hung outside on the clothesline and her bed was made daily. Rose found moments of peace while spending time in her garden. Most of all Rose loved dancing. She danced her heart out at the Moose Lodge and any other party she attended but she lived for the Beaver Dam Jam party held every year. It was her favorite part of the year. 

A Celebration of Life will take place at 3:00 pm on Sunday June 26, 2022 at Hope Valley Hawkins Funeral Chapel, 1246 Hobbton Hwy. Clinton, NC 28328. Pastor Jerry Fisher officiating. 

Rose is preceded in death by her daughter: Mary Ann Fisher; mother: Eunice Simmons; father: Junius Simmons; brothers: Junius Simmons, Corbin Simmons, Donald Simmons; and her sister: Alma Fields. 

Left to cherish the memory of Rose are her children: Darley Smith (Bronzie Smith) of Salemburg, Roy Fisher of Roseboro, NC, Jennifer Fisher of Roseboro, NC; grandchildren: Ciji Spell, Ashley Melvin (Chris Melvin), Cody Fisher (Gloria Mojarro) Tabitha Fisher, Delton Bryant, Mikayla Bryant; great-grandchildren: James Ammons, Sarah Lutz, Austin Spell, Ayden Melvin, Cayden Melvin, Gracie Odum, Charlie Rae Fisher; her siblings: Faye Ezzell, Kay Austin Judy Bradshaw, James Simmons, Mary Fann; and her very special friend Charles Herring.
