Rosa Caldwell

January 11, 1931 — August 5, 2020


Rosa Nell Caldwell, surrounded by her family, transitioned to her eternal resting place on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 10:00 p.m., from the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center of Paducah, Kentucky. Rosa Nell Caldwell was born in Paducah, Kentucky on January 11, 1931, to the late Tibzell Hill, Sr. and Ruby Lee Crossland Hill.

Rosa Nell gave her life to Christ at a young age. She was a devoted member to her church, Second Cumberland Presbyterian Church which was later renamed Enoch Chapel. Working as a deaconess, usher, Sunday School teacher, and Mother of the Church were a few of the positions she served in the church.

Rosa Nell was a graduate of the former Lincoln High School and was a graduate of West Kentucky Vocational School where she received her certification as a licensed cosmetologist. She was a great homemaker and served as a professional housekeeper for many families in the Paducah area.

Rosa Nell dearly loved her family. She was most happy spending time with her loved ones and preparing Sunday dinners for them to consume after church services. Rosa Nell was kind-hearted and never judged anyone. When she had free time, she would relax and watch her favorite shows on the Hallmark Channel.

Rosa Nell was preceded in death by her son, Ronald Caldwell, one daughter, Fredricka Caldwell, her brother, James Larry Hill, Sr. and her son-in-law, Robert Rouse, Jr.
