Roseva C. (Kemberling) Stover, of Sunbury, received a call at Manor Care requesting her presence at a very important interview. The BOSS was impressed with her timely arrival to the initial interview. He was very aware of her experience serving others, first as a nurse and later in life as a waitress at the Oasis, Johnny's Spaghetti Bar and The Galley (to name a few) made her a good candidate so He offered her a position in His Kingdom. This was something Rose prepared for since the day she was born (Nov. 22, 1935). Without fear or hesitation, she accepted His generous offer.
Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, Rose arrived at His doors where she was welcomed with open arms by her father, Albert Kemberling and mother, Edna (Swope) Kemberling. Although they will miss her, Rose's children, two daughters, Alisa Shrawder and husband Roger, of Selinsgrove, Bethanne Zeigler and husband William, of Sunbury; four sons, Richard Bowersox and wife Susan, of South Carolina, Randy Bowersox, of New Jersey, Robert Stover and wife Maria, of Selinsgrove, and Craig Stover, of Millmont, are happy to know that this was an opportunity she could not refuse.
Her grandchildren, Annette Swank, Stephanie Young, Angel Eichner, Roger Shrawder, Robin Shrawder, Zaraya Shrawder, Adam Shrawder, Tracy Bowersox, Justin Stover, Nathan Stover, Kate Lynn Stover, Eric Attinger, Benjamin Attinger, and Nicole Attinger as well as her 14 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren are sad to see her go but know that someday they will see her again. Rose's brothers, Harry Kemberling and wife Bertha, of Selinsgrove and Albert Kemberling and wife Shirley, of Watsontown are sad to see their little sister leave but know her destination is somewhere we all hope to live someday.
To congratulate Rose on her new position, her family is hosting a celebration at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017, at the Higher Hope Annex located at 604 Market St., Sunbury. Refreshments, including burnt hot dogs (one of Rosie's favorites) will be served. We all know Rosie loves a party, but due to her new commitments, she is unable to attend.
On Rosie's behalf, her family asks that in lieu of flowers, you donate to Central Susquehanna Sight Services.
Arrangements are by the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 395 State St, Sunbury.
