Obituary of Roselyn Botts

Roselyn Mary Botts, 96, of St Petersburg, Florida passed away February 26, 2023 in St Petersburg, Florida. She was born on July 18,1926 in Warren, Ohio to John and Rose Carey.

Roselyn was devoted to her family. She was a fun and caring woman. Her strength of character and patience was evident to all who met her. She was calm under pressure and could ace a complicated jigsaw puzzle in a weekend. She was known to buy the paper just for the crossword puzzles. 

Roselyn was also known for her green thumb and could miraculously bring life to failing plants. Snakes terrified her, nonetheless, she still worked diligently in her garden. 

She and her husband built a house from scratch on Lover’s Lane. Family gatherings during Thanksgiving were most memorable. She will be sorely missed.
