Arrangements for: Rose Mary Farmer Hyde

Rose Mary Farmer Hyde was born October 10, 1932 to the late R. V. Farmer and the late Nellie Boyd Taylor Farmer. She was the third of four children born of this union, (Hergert, Frances and Gloria preceded her in death). She was reared in Springfield, Tennessee and attended public school, graduating from Bransford High School. She developed lifelong friendships and recalled with fondness participating in the marching band. Aft4er graduating from high school, Rose worked and resided in Robertson the majority of her life. She worked as a domestic and after many years returned to school for medical training. She worked as a CNA in various organizations, spending several years with the NHC nursing home, as well as working as a housekeeper within the community.

It was at a very young age, Rose dedicated her life to the Lord. Rose’s “Mother” made sure that she had opportunities to attend Christian Methodist Episcopal Church conferences and learned to be of service. Rose continued to represent Whites Chapel CME church at local and state conferences for decades until physical limitations restricted her access. She was eager to share her testimony and encourage others to “Count on the Lord ad He will see you through.”

Rose was married to the late Robert Hyde and raised six children from this union. Deborah, Dennis (who preceded her in death), Dwanna, Rhulette, Robert (Wendy), and Donna. She was also blessed to have a thirty year partnership with the late Ambers Payne and raised four children, Darryl, Deena (Tre’Bion), Dwayne, Diamond, along with spreading her love to Timmy and Jimmy (Teresa). Rose always felt it was an honor and joy raising her large family.

Rose leaves a wonderful legacy as a Mother, Friend, Helper and most importantly Child of God. She endured so many trials and tribulations throughout her life, but never swayed from her trust in the Lord. Rose worked hard and believed all people should put forth an “honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay”. Many knew of her generous spirit and were in awe her strength and perseverance, but she would be the first to tell you her strength came from the Lord.
Oh what a glorious day, December 29, 2020, when Rose ended her arduous journey here on Earth. She is with loved ones once again. She worked hard to spread the love of Jesus Christ and now she rests in his arms. Rose has nourished and poured into her children, twenty‐ six grandchildren, forty-two great grandchildren; and to any child of God who needed to hear of his blessing. She has been an exemplary servant of the Lord and has earned her rest. Keep her love in your heart and share her generous example by trusting the Lord.

Funeral Service was Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Greater Whites Chapel CME Church with Reverend Dr. Susan Sawyer, Eulogy; Reverend Woodrow Harris, Jr., Officiating.
