Rose Ann Fontenot
Rose Ann Myers Fontenot, 69, of Pasco, WA passed away to be with the heavenly father on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, WA. Rose was born Saturday, August 9, 1952, at Prosser Memorial Hospital to Carol and Jean Myers and raised by her father and mother Faye Myers.
In Rose’s childhood she was proud of growing up as a farm girl. She would love telling stories about helping her dad fix things and reminiscing how she was probably quite a pest but didn’t realize it at the time. Rose was a graduate of Grandview High School.
Rose’s greatest achievement was raising three boys on her own who became wonderful men and fathers. She retired after 29 years of service from JCPenney, as the manager of the catalog department. She was married on May 19, 2003, to her loving husband Emery Fontenot.
Rose enjoyed visiting and spending time with her family and many friends. She loved lions, gemstones, reading, cooking and her dogs Molly and Skippy. She was always there to brighten the lives of others with her contagious laugh and smile. Rose was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, aunt and friend. She will forever be missed and in our hearts.
Rose is survived by her husband Emery, sons James (Christine) Mowery, Todd (Mindy) Mowery, and Jason (Lindsay) Cours, stepchildren Emery Jr., Cody, and Robin Fontenot, grandchildren, Jared, Brooke and Christopher Duran, Isiah, Ethan, and Alannah Mowery, Journey Mackebon, Trinity and Liam Cours, Scarlett and Alexander Fontenot, Blaise, Garrett and Kayla-Joy Zatterstrom and Cody Ballard, four great-grandchildren, sisters Charlotte (Arvind) Jadhav, Melinda Myers, and Mickey White.
She was preceded in death by her father Carol Myers, mothers Faye Myers and Jean Myers, and sister Michelle Myers.
Funeral services will be held at Einan’s at Sunset on Tuesday January 4, 2022, at 11:00am. A viewing is scheduled from 9:00-11:00am. Following the service will be a graveside interment at 1:00pm at Desert Lawn Memorial Park. Flowers may be sent to or obtained through Einan’s.
Dear Rose Ann, I am glad I was able to watch your service on-line. I am so happy that you came up to visit me when I was in Prosser a few months back. Having lived much of your younger years in Seattle after graduation, I was not as close to you as I was to Char, since we were roommates, and the same age. Facebook changed a lot of that! We connected and managed to stay in touch and shared a lot on Facebook. I am sure going to miss your birthday posts! Seems like there was a birthday every month or so! You always were wishing someone a happy birthday! I am also going to miss reading about all the great food and dishes you were cooking! It was like a culinary column, but they were all yours! That and fresh veggies from your garden! I know you would not come back, even given the chance, but your Aunt Mary will miss you!
Rose will be greatly missed. She was a great friend to know. I talked to her on Facebook often. Rest in Peace friend.
I will cherish the memories we shared over the past 34 years. From selling shoes to being the Tuesday night closing managers together. Our coffee dates after our time with JCP ended, not to mention the long phone calls and chats that would go on for days. My heart is broken, Rose BUT you have also left it full of memories I will cherish. Until we meet again, my friend. 🌹
Rose was always a ray of sunshine in the JCP family. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. My deepest sympathies for her family and friends
Thank you Rose for all the memories and everything you’ve ever done for us. We miss you.
We will miss your touch but remember fondly your laughter and gentle way.
Rose Ann you will be greatly missed. I knew you since 1968. We text and emailed almost daily. You were a friend I will never forget. Rest in Peace Rose!
