Rose Mary Stafford
November 17, 1942 ~ April 13, 2022
Resided in: Arlington, Texas
With faith and love, we remember and honor the life of Rose Roznovsky Stafford who entered into eternity with her Lord and Savior on April 13, 2022. The matriarch of our lives, she loved us all with incredible strength and perseverance.
Rose was born on November 17, 1942, in Penelope, Texas to Otilie and John Roznovsky. One of 8 children. She lived on a rural farm throughout her childhood until she graduated high school and moved to Grand Prairie where she met and married Kenneth Stafford. Rose was a successful career woman who climbed the corporate ladder and retired from Lockheed Martin after 30+ years of service. A devout Catholic, Rose served her church in many volunteer roles throughout her life. She enjoyed faithfully attending Mass, family gatherings, cooking, gardening, fishing, puzzles, and the list goes on.
Rose will best be remembered for the uncanny way that she made us all feel special and loved. She truly loved like Christ loves. All were welcome in her home and immediately made to feel like family. Her life was a constant example of unconditional love & forgiveness. The greatest example of this selfless love was the love she showed her husband, our father, Kenneth for 57 years of marriage. Their steadfast love will last for eternity!
Rose is survived by Husband Kenneth Stafford; Children: Renee and Courtney Hughes, Darla Bruce, Michael Stafford and stepson, Kenneth Chamberlin; Grandchildren: Clay, Lauren, Kristen, Loren, Britney, and Abigail; Great-grandchildren: Addison, Emma, and Jackson, who loved their MeMaw with all their hearts, siblings and & a multitude of nieces, nephews and friends who meant the world to her, and that we all hold dear.
We thank each and every one of you who have expressed your love and support at this difficult time. We love you all.
Thank you for celebrating her life with us…forever in our hearts.
