Rosa Lee was born on March 24, 1931. She graduated from the LaBelle School, married her sweetheart, and had five beautiful children. After her husband’s passing in 1964, she and her children continued to run their large cattle ranch in Devil’s Garden, FL. With her children grown and on their own, it was time for a change. In 1986, Rosa Lee moved back to LaBelle. Here, she and her son Gary opened a family business called Video Tech. During their nearly 15 years of business, Rosa Lee met many amazing people with whom she made lifelong friendships. In 1999, she retired, and spent her time with family and friends, cooking big southern meals, developing a love for ceramics, and attending her beloved church. In 2011, Rosa Lee was recognized as an Honorary Director by the Florida Cattlemen’s Association for her faithful service to the cattle industry of Hendry County.
Rosa Lee will be remembered as a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend who will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her. She was one of the kindest souls who would do whatever she could to help anyone in need, and her spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of everyone she touched.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, October 19, 2023 at 10:30 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of LaBelle. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Baptist Church (Building Fund).
