Obituary

WESTBROOK - Following a long battle with chronic health issues and surrounded by her three daughters, daughter-in-law and son-in-law, Rosie Coleman passed away, Thursday, March 21, 2019, at Maine Medical Center, just hours shy of her 60th birthday.Rosie was born to Elizabeth Durant on March 22, 1959, in Massachusetts. Rosie was later adopted by her Aunt Rose Coleman of Somerville, Mass., where she grew up, attended school and made lifelong friends. Rosie graduated from Somerville High School. After high school Rosie obtained her nurses assistant certification. While working as a CNA, Rosie continued to attend school at Mercy Hospital School of Nursing where she received her LPN. Rosie's marriage in 1979 marked the beginning of fulfilling her dream of starting a family of her own. Being a mother, and later a grandmother, gave her the greatest joy in life.When Rosie smiled it was the biggest smile. When she laughed she laughed hard. It was impossible not to laugh with her. Rosie was a woman with a big heart. She touched many lives. Unfortunately, her heart was not quite strong enough for her to continue living among us. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,I'm following the path God has chosen for me.I took his hand when I heard him call,I turned my back and left it all.I could not stay another day,to laugh, to love, to work or play.Tasks left undone must stay that way,I've now found peace at the end of day.If my parting has left a void,Then fill it with remembered joys.A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.Be not burdened with times of sorrow,Look for the sunshine of tomorrow.My life's been full, I savored much,Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,Perhaps my time seems all too brief,Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief.Lift up your heart and peace to thee,God wanted me now - He set me free.Rosie is survived by her daughters, Hillary Blair and her husband, Jereck Blair, of Westbrook, Shana Peacock and her partner, Tina Mowatt, of Lisbon, Merite Peacock and her partner, Joel Bruns, of Windham; and her many grandchildren, Kylie, Aaron, Ethan, Emily and Phoebe. She was preceded by her biological mother, Elizabeth (Durant) Sutton; both her grandparents, Reginald and Rose Durant; and lifelong friend, Patrick Francis Sullivan Jr.The family would like to thank all of the staff on R4 at Maine Medical Center. Her daughters would specifically like to thank Jenny, Josh, Dawn and Mike for the care and comfort they provided to Rosie in her final hours; allowing for a very peaceful passing."Foxy Lady" you are forever in our hearts.There will be a vigil service, Saturday, March 30, starting at 11 a.m., at Wilson Funeral Home, 24 Shaker Road, Gray. Visitation will immediately follow the until 2 p.m.
