Rose Mary Seese

December 3, 1933 — December 17, 2023



Rose Mary Seese, age 90, of Arlington, TX, peacefully passed away in her sleep on December 17, 2023. She was a devout follower of Christ, exemplifying humility and steadfastness, rooted in a deep love of Scripture. Throughout her life, Rose dedicated herself to spreading the teachings of the Gospel and offering solace to those in need.

Born on December 3, 1933, in Philadelphia, PA, she was a shining light in the lives of many, always ready to offer a helping hand and a comforting word. Rose's unwavering faith guided her every step, and she was known for her fervent prayers and unwavering trust in God's plan.

Left to cherish her memory are her beloved daughters, Barbara P. Dearing (David) and Sara M. Seese; her grandson, Joshua L. Dearing (Allison); and her precious great-granddaughters, Kirsa, Eleni, and Fiore Dearing. She also leaves behind her younger sister Mary Sanders, as well as numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and a host of extended family members who were touched by her kindness.

Rose's journey in this life was preceded by her beloved husband, Harry A. Seese, who eagerly awaited her arrival in the arms of the Lord. She was also reunited with her parents, William and Catherine Krimmel, her twin brother, Lyman Krimmel, her sisters Catherine DiFalco and Ella Swift, and her brother William Krimmel. Their spirits now rest in eternal peace together.

Rose's commitment to learning led her to Kensington High School in Philadelphia, PA, where she laid the foundation for a life of service and devotion. Following her education, she embarked on a remarkable career, finally retiring from Kennedy Culvert and Supply Co in Clementon, NJ in her mid-70s! Rose continued to share her wisdom and passion for service wherever she worked. Prior to her retirement, she held various clerical positions at Philadelphia's Methodist Hospital (now part of Jefferson University Hospital), Briarwood Medical Center in Medford, NJ, and Brady Motor Freight. Her love for the Lord and her desire to bring comfort to those in need led her to serve as a Pastor at two United Methodist Churches in southern New Jersey during the 1980s and 1990s.

Rose found solace and strength in her spiritual community, worshiping at St. Andrew's UMC in Cherry Hill, NJ, and later at Meadowbrook-Poly UMC in Fort Worth, TX. Her unwavering faith was exemplified through her tireless dedication as a hospital volunteer at Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia for many, many years, even earning recognition as Volunteer of the Year. She later extended her compassionate service as a volunteer at Virtua Voorhees in Voorhees, NJ, where she was also honored as a Volunteer of the Year!

A service to celebrate Rose's extraordinary life will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2024, at 2PM CST. The service will take place at Meadowbrook-Poly United Methodist Church, located at 3900 Meadowbrook Dr., Fort Worth, TX 76103. For those unable to attend in person, the service will be available for online streaming through Facebook Live at  "Pastor Ginger," Rev. Ginger Watson, will lead the service and her godson, Rev. Darren Williams, will also say a few words via video.

Her daughters wish to thank the staff of Emerald Hills Funeral Home in Kennedale, TX  for their gentle, compassionate assistance at this time, as well as the staff of Freedom Hospice in North Richland Hills, TX for taking such good care of their mother during the last year of her life and easing her transition to eternal life.

As we bid farewell to Rose Mary Seese, let us remember her as a shining example of faith, love, and compassion. Her unwavering devotion to God and her selfless service to others have left an indelible mark on the hearts and souls of all who had the privilege of knowing her. May her spirit find eternal peace in the embrace of the Almighty, and may her legacy of love and kindness continue to inspire us all.
