Rosa Hobbs, 91, of Port St. Joe passed away September 8, 2017 at her home surrounded by family. She was under the care of Emerald Coast Hospice due to her heart. They were amazing and showed so much love and care to her.
Rosa was born in Pulaski County, GA and moved to Dublin, GA and attended Jefferson Street Baptist Church. She was a telephone operateor and engineering clerk for many years and moved to Port St. Joe and attended First Baptist Church of Mexico Beach.
Rosa was a wonderful Christian woman who loved the Lord. Her love for family will be cherished forever. She always had a joke to tell and compassion for anyone. She will surely be missed.
Rosa was preceded in death by her husband, Ben Hobbs, who died August 13, 2015.
She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Gail and David Young of Port St. Joe, FL and Kay and Joe Anderson of Wrightsville, GA; a sister and brother-in-law, Barb and Howard Upton of Eastman, GA; brother, Wendall Brown of Hawkinsville, GA; a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A private memorial for family will be held at First Baptist Church of Mexico Beach at a later time by Rev. Eddie LaFountain.
Memorial contributions are welcome and should be mailed to First Baptist Church of Mexico Beach in Rosa’s honor.
