Rosetta Sims

Rosetta Sims was born July 3, 1951 to Henry and Ida Leona (Johnson) Sims, in Keokuk, IA.
At an early age she accepted the Lord and loved church. Her favorite thing to do was sing old traditional hymns and teach children about the Lord.

Rosetta attended Des Moines Tech High school, graduating in 1970. She then earned A.A. in Nursing from Des Moines Area Community College, but her true passion was teaching. Rosetta loved children and mentoring.

Rosetta also loved to shop whether it was shoes, clothing, jewelry or even home décor. Whatever it was, she just had to shop! People knew her as the "Church Lady". She loved to cook too, her favorite food to cook was pork chops, mac and cheese, homemade hamburgers and cheesecake. She also stayed up on her "stories" Young and the Restless and Bold and Beautiful.

Rosetta was a wonderful woman who never met a stranger. She was kindhearted, loving, and cared about people.

Rosetta was called from labor to reward on June 12, 2016. She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Ida Sims; brother, Maurice H. Sims; grandparents, Albert and Alice Johnson and niece, Tamola Sims.

She is survived by her son, William Henry Sims and sister, Linda Sims.
