Nashville — Rose Marie died on Sunday, 17 October 2021 at the age of 70. She was born 7 October 1951, the daughter of the late, Ruth Edwards and Wayne T. Coppedge in Spring Hope. She is survived by her husband Donald. They were married for 52 years, 4 months and nine days before her death. She is also survived by three children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, with fourth due in November.

She also attended Nash Community College graduating with a degree in Accounting. She loved to travel and visited 49 states. Her health prevented her from visiting Alaska. Rose and Donald made their first home in Kaneohe, Hawaii. She loved the warm weather there and as she would say "year round shorts and no shoes place". She loved RVing and was on her way home from Cape Hatteras when her heart stopped. She had fought heart disease since 1990 and enjoyed life to the fullest despite the disease. Rose Marie was a Duke Blue Devil fan and instilled this into most of her children and grandchildren.
