Rosie Summers Obituary

Rosie Lee Edmond Summers, 94, affectionally known as “Elwee” by her family and friends and “Summer Time” by her Pastor, was born October 1, 1928 in Leesville, South Carolina. She transitioned to her heavenly home on Sunday, September 17, 2023 just two weeks prior to celebrating her 95th birthday.

Rosie Lee accepted Christ at an early age and joined St. Matthew C.M.E. Church in Leesville, South Carolina.  After she graduated from Hampton High, she attended Bettis Academy, and graduated from Allen University in 1961.

Though South Carolina always remained home, she lived in Connecticut, Virginia, and finally made Maryland her home for over 54 years. There, she joined First Baptist Church of Highland Park November 1, 1975.  Rosie Lee loved her church and she served faithfully in the follow ministries:  October Birthday Ministry, Missionary Ministry, Pastor Partners, Pictorial Ministry, The Installation Committee of Dr. Henry P. Davis III, Pastor, Journal Committee, Tutorial Ministry, Lucy Wyatt Choir, Credit Union Committee, Sunday Biblical Institute (Student), and Vacation Bible School.

Rosie Lee was a dedicated and outstanding teacher and an asset to the Prince George’s County School Systems where she began her teaching career at William Paca Elementary School in 1969 and taught at Morningside Elementary for 18 years.  She retired from the Prince George’s County School Systems July 1, 1992.  After retiring at the age of 64, because she loved children dearly she returned as a full-time Substitute Teacher and worked until she was 80 years old.

Rosie Lee was preceded in death by her parents, Stannie and Alberta Edmond; brothers, M.C. Edmond, Lawrence P. Edmond and a sister, Dorothy R. Cornelius. Her life is a beautiful legacy to be celebrated by her children, John W. (Diane) Summers, Carolyn S. (Freddie) Derrick, Randy C. Summers, Cynthia D.
