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 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.
