Rose Daniels Mangum, 85, was received into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Friday, January 20, 2023. Rose was born in Louisburg to the late Alfred L. and Ruth Joyner Daniels on September 10, 1937. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Sam Mangum; and brother, Pete Daniels.
For many years, Rose served the residents of Fremont Rest Villas as the operating manager. Her dedication and commitment to the best care facility were recognized by the many she worked with and cared for. Rose has also served as the secretary for the Women’s Bowling Association.
Faith was both important and evident in Rose’s life. She fulfilled her membership role at Woods Grove Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church through her prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Rose was a constant in the life of the church.
For Rose, the family was everything. No matter the situation, she remained proud of each and every one of them. If her children were involved in any activities, you could often find Rose helping in some way. She served as a Girl Scout Leader while living in Florida and North Carolina. Rose also had a deep love for sports and assisted as a softball coach for her children’s team.
Rose will be remembered by her family as a faithful and loving wife, mama, and granny. She will be missed by her family and her lifelong friend; Tootsie Vinson and the entire Vinson Family, as well as many others she loved very much.
