Mrs. Roden was a member of Highland Baptist Church. Everyone that knew her was blessed and privileged to have known her and be loved by her. She loved to cook, read her Bible and other books, but most of all, she loved all of her family and it showed through her talking about her family and memories. In one of my recent talks with her she stated, “I have no regrets and I would not change one thing about my life.”
The Roden family would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to Alacare Hospice, Dr. Bartmess, and Julia Butler.
In Lieu of flowers she had requested donations to Florence- Lauderdale Public Library or charity of preference.
