Roosevelt Coursey


    WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas – Services for Roosevelt “Rosie” Coursey will be held Monday at 10 a.m., at Bethany Christian Church, 1500 Meadow Park Drive in White Settlement. Burial will be in Laurel Land Memorial Park of Fort Worth with Laurel Land Funeral Home of Fort Worth in charge of arrangements.

    Mrs. Coursey, 79, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 7, 2013. Rosie was born in Lauderdale County, Miss., on March 20, 1933, to Martin and Janie Lee. She retired from Justin Boot Company. Rosie was a proud member of Bethany Christian Church, where she was always found in the kitchen around all the children. She enjoyed baking pecan pies for the White Settlement and Arlington police departments, the White Settlement Post Office and the Wells Fargo Bank. Rosie never met a stranger, just a friend she didn't know.

    Survivors include her sons: Danny Brown of Meridian, Miss., Raymond (Andy) Hannah and his wife, Linda, of White Settlement, and Eddie Green and his wife, Cindy, of Joshua; her grandchildren: Corey and Clint Freeman of Justin, Jake and Bobbi Green of Searcy, Ark., Samantha Hannah and Kevin Merrifield of White Settlement, Pennie Green of Joshua and Alex Hannah of White Settlement; her precious great-grandchildren: Clayton, Boston, Colton, Caylie, Jaxton and Camryn; sister, Betty Brown of Meridian, Miss.; and, many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

    In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Bethany Christian Church in memory of Rosie.

    The family of Roosevelt Coursey would like to thank the staff of White Settlement Nursing Center and Grace Hospice for their loving care of our Mama and Mamaw, as well as to Dr. Fredrick Johnson and Mr. Weldon Thurman.

    Visitation will be today, from 4 p.m.-6 p.m., at the funeral home.

Do you think the city of Meridian should aggressively enforce the city's code enforcement laws on litter, abandoned homes and overgrown lots by issuing tickets and stiff fines?
