Rosie Mae Montague



We come to honor Rosie Mae Montague affectionately known to family and friends as "Bug". She was the youngest child of Allen and Ida Montague. Rosie was born August 13, 1946. On February 11, 2017, Rosie was called home to be with the angels.

Rosie grew up in Spotsylvania County where she attended John J. Wright School. She gave her life to God at a early age. Rosie was a member of Second New Hope Baptist Church where she proudly served on the women's choir and the usher board. Rosie worked for many years at Howard Johnson's Hotel in Spotsylvania, VA, and later for the Federal Government in Washington, D.C.

She cherished her family and after her mother became ill, spent many years as her caretaker. Rosie did not have children of her own but was a special Aunt to her nieces and nephews who have fond memories of spending weekends with her. The love she showed will forever be remembered.

She is survived by one niece, Thea Maddox (Eddie), three nephews, Kenneth Samuels (Petra), Allen Samuels (Crystal), and Walter Montague, Jr., two sisters in-law, Evelyn Montague and Mamie Montague, all of Spotsylvania; great nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents Allen Montague and Ida Montague, two brothers Walter Montague and William Montague, and two sisters Gladys Samuels and Marion Montague.
