Rosetta Kathryn Smith-Brown was born on December 10, 1940 in Bronx, New York to the late James Edward Smith, Sr. and Marion Virginia Pulley-Smith. She was the only daughter and middle sibling affectionately nicknamed “Cissy”
On May 23, 1959, Rosetta was united in Holy Matrimony to Kenneth Brown and from this union a daughter was born, Robin Dina Brown-Jenkins.
In New York, Rosetta retired as a supervisor from the United States Post Office after 23 years of service. After retirement she went to work with the North Ward Center in Newark, New Jersey as an Assistant Director for their Senior Program. She observed a growing need with the senior society and she was compelled to help seniors maintain a better quality of life, so as a result, she began to work with the Easter Seals of New Jersey to help prepare seniors for employment in the workforce.
Rosetta was known for her beautiful, angelic spirit. She was always willing to lend a helping hand and she would literally give you her blouse off her back. She loved making people laugh, her sense of humor was adored by all who knew her. For example, she would say to her son-in-law, who is a twin, if he knew which one he was? And then she would look at him with a smirk on her face in anticipation of his answer.
Rosetta moved to Baltimore, Maryland in 2015 to be closer to her family and now she is predeceased by two brothers, Joseph Lemuel Smith and James Edward Smith, Jr. She is now survived by her daughter, Robin Dina Brown-Jenkins (Jamsie E. Jenkins), three granddaughters, Ashlee C. Greene-Dixon (Donald L. Dixon, Jr.), Jamie C. Greene and Lindsey T. Brown, five great-grandchildren, Donald L. Dixon, III, Gabrielle S. Dixon, Jayla R. Campbell, Mya S. Dixon and Landen L. Dixon.
