Rosa Mae McPhaul was born in Hoke County, North Carolina on October 11, 1926 to John Henry McPhaul and Novella Wade McPhaul. God called her into eternal rest on Monday, February 19, 2018 at Autumn Care in Raeford, North Carolina.
She often shared stories of her childhood and younger years. She always talked about working on the farm with her father. She worked hard throughout her lifetime doing various jobs. Her last employment was with House of Raeford where she retired. She opened her home to many of her nieces and nephews and raised them as her own children. She always spoiled her grands because she would never tell them “No”. She became a member of Center Grove Missionary Baptist Church at an early age.
She leaves to cherish her memories her loving and devoted daughter Annie Mae McMillan (Charles) of Raeford, North Carolina. Six grandchildren: Jerry McMillan (Lolita) of Hampton, VA, Janice Winston (Maurice) of Raeford, NC, Bernice McMillan (David) of Raeford, NC, Charles McMillan (Carla) of Greensboro, NC, Gloria McMillan of Raeford, NC, and Kathleen Singletary (Leroy) of Raeford, NC; twelve great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandsons.
