Rosella M. Rust
The Evening of Friday, August 8th, Our Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and Cherished Friend left us but she did not leave us alone. She passed on a legacy of love, and the responsibility to carry on what she gave us.
Ours is a rather large family, for it exceeds the boundaries of blood and law, to includes all who met her-- for when you met our mother you were changed in a very special way. Although physically gone, mom is here. We will miss her very much and will always remember her each time we do a kind deed for another or hold a young child. Our mom always loved everybody so much...
Rose Rust was born on August 1st , 1929 in Battle Creek Michigan, and spent her youth in Selah Washington then moved to Richland Washington in 1947 to raise her family.
Over the years Rose inspired her loving husband of 56 1/2 years, Donald Rust; her children Pam Hames and husband Bill, Rodney Rust and wife Lilia, Ted Rust and partner Mark Cary, Renae Rust, Bill Rust and wife Tanya, and of course, the passion of her life - her 12 beautiful grandchildren and wives and their 7 great grandchildren.
She has also touched the lives of her surviving brothers and sisters and their families, Jean Rodgers, Enoch Scotty Scott, Alice Carol and Patricia Ball; and those who went on before her, Betty Pierce, Bob Farley and her little sister, Renetta Farley and her mother Agnes Farley, step-father Ed Farley and cherished father Enoch Thomas Scott.
Throughout their years together, Don and Rose found enough love in their heart to take care of many foster children, refugees from conflict and other wayward souls. This included every friend we brought into their home over the years.
In addition to her legacy as a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, cherished friend and homemaker, Rose was also an accomplished artist. She received many awards and certificates of recognition for her amazingly beautiful china painting, porcelain dolls and porcelain works of art, oil paintings and other pieces of art. And it must be said that she always enjoyed creating her works of art in the company of her dear friends in the Southeast Washington China Painter's Association and at the Kennewick and Pasco Senior Centers.
In closing Mom. .. You Did Very Good!
