Funeral services for Mrs. Rosa B. Anthony will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 12:00 noon at Friendship Baptist Church on Cotton Ave. in Americus, Georgia. Burial will follow at the Eastview Cemetery.

Rosa B. Anthony, affectionately known as “Granny” graced the world with her presence on August 1, 1918 in Americus, Georgia. She was the only child born to the late Catherine Mott Merritt and John H. Mott.

Granny pursued her childhood education in Americus, Georgia. She then began her working career at Acluster Peanut Mill as a sorter. For an ample amount of years, she wholeheartedly served as a caretaker as well.

Granny greatly impacted the lives of many through her spunkiness and feisty words. Her words encouraged people to make improvements within themselves and essentially, she did all she could do to "whip them into shape". Even through her stern ways, she never left you wondering whether or not you were loved.  She loved to be the center of attention; she loved an audience when telling her stories and making everyone laugh. If she wasn’t looking after the little ones and fussing she was doing the one thing she loved and that was fishing.

Granny dedicated her life to pleasing the Lord. She attended Peach Baptist Church in Americus, Georgia and stood by her saying “You live right, you die right”. Granny passed away peacefully at the age of 99 on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at the Montezuma Healthcare. She was preceded in death by her parents Catherine Mott Merritt, John H. Mott, her children, Louise Taylor Gordon, and Jimmy Lee Taylor.

Rosa leaves to celebrate and cherish her memory, her children: Buddy Hollis and Catherine Clark Taylor, nine grandchildren, and a host of great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, other relatives, and friends.
