On April 5, 2018, the Lord called HIS beloved daughter, Rosa Mae Coleman Wilkins, to her eternal reward in Heaven. Rosa Mae was born on August 29, 1927 in Halifax County, Virginia to the late John Howard Coleman and Rosa Lee Woodson Coleman.
Rosa Mae was joined in holy matrimony at an early age to the late Levi Wilkins, Jr. This union was blessed with a son, the late Kenneth Coleman Wilkins. This loving couple resided in Englewood, New Jersey. While living in New Jersey, she was a Hair Stylist at a local Beauty Salon.
At a young age, Rosa Mae received Christ as her personal savior. While living in New Jersey, she was a devoted member of Mt. Sinai Holiness Church in the Bronx, New York. Later in her adult life, she moved back to Virginia and on August 27, 1995, became a loyal member of Christ In You Worship Center, located in Vernon Hill, Virginia. While a member of Christ in You Worship Center, she served as a Church Mother, Missionary, sang in the Adult Choir, and was part of the Intercessory Prayer Ministry.
On August 30, 2014, Rosa Mae relocated to Moncks Corner, South Carolina to live with her devoted grandson Kenneth "Josh" Wilkins and his wife Diane. While living in Moncks Corner, she became a faithful disciple of Fresh Anointing Ministries Worship Center, COGIC in Summerville, South Carolina. She always enjoyed playing her tambourine and hearing her grandson lead Praise and Worship.
One of Rosa Mae's greatest attributes was being a prayer warrior and sharing God's word. One of her favorite scriptures was Hebrew 13:5, which the Lord tells us, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Rosa Mae Coleman Wilkins is survived by her nine grandchildren: Shelia Wilkins-Peoples (David), Aoril Wilkins-Davis (Rodney), Kenneth Joshua Wilkins (Diane), Corinthia Wilkins, Desmen Spates (April), Asha Smith, Kenneth "Trooper" Wilkins, Kenyshia Wilkins, and Nakeena Aneforpe; seventeen great-grandchildren; three sisters-in-law: Dolores Thompson, Theda Cherry, and Charmaine Archibald; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. In addition to her parents, Rosa Mae was preceded in death by three sisters: Luvenia Reid, Esther Coleman and Geraldine Dixon; and one brother: James Napoleon Coleman.
