Rozanah Grubb Althisar, 87, of Warm Springs died Monday, April 16, 2012 at her home. She was the widow of Dr. Raleigh Althisar, Sr. and is survived by her children, Zan Cason, Pat Winter, Raleigh and Sudie Althisar and Janet Broadwell, 10 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren and one brother, H. Mickey (Peggy) Grubb. Funeral services will be 1:00 pm, Saturday, April 21, 2012 at the Manchester First United Methodist Church, with Rev. Stephen Soulen and Dr. Bob Patterson officiating. A private interment will follow the service according to Cox Funeral Home, Manchester. Visitation will be 6 to 8 pm Friday at the funeral home. Rozanah was born into her new life going on 88 years old. “Going on” was how she lived – always looking towards the next day, the next adventure. As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, there are more stories to be told than can be held in one book. Add to this the shared ones from her life growing up (often filled with both adventure and humor), it’s hard to know where to start. It is enough to say that she was a loving, tom boyish daughter, a devoted wife, a warm and caring mother and trusted friend. As a mother, we include her grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as others both known and unknown to us. Her mother’s heart was always ready and willing to share itself with those in need of it. Our mother loved animals. We choose to believe that the house our Lord has prepared for her, will include those she loved and cared for with her beautiful white Arabian, Fanny, saddled and ready to ride – something she wished she had done in her younger years. She loved the Lord. If you were able to rise at earliest light as she did you would find her sitting with both her Bible and the devotional “Jesus Calling” opened before her. Thanks to all for the cards, letters, visits and friendship as she walked through the last days. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to West Georgia Hospice Volunteer Program, First United Methodist Church of Manchester or First Baptist Church of Warm Springs. A special thanks to Jacki for taking us through the process. And to Trina Slaton who helped care for our mother over the last few months and became a trusted and loved companion to our mother and a friend to us all. In loving memory from her children, Zan, Patsy, Raleigh, Sudie and Janet.
