On Wednesday, December 11, 2019, God, in His infinite wisdom, dispatched His Angels to Lynchburg General Hospital to relieve His daughter, Rosetta Venable, from all suffering and pain. 

Rosetta was born on December 25, 1946 to the late Louise Hall-Venable and John Robert Venable, Jr. Rosetta was a 1967 graduate of Dunbar High School and attended Central VA Community College. She was an employee of Central VA Training Center for 25 years.

She was preceded in death by both parents; her sister Patricia Haythe; maternal grandparents Nora and Blane Hall; paternal grandparents Daisy and John Robert Venable, Sr,; two aunts Rosa Lee and John Lyons; Blanche and Willard Scott, II and several cousins.

Those left to cherish her memory are her sisters Shirley Mae of Madison Heights, Va. and Althea Faye of Lynchburg, Va.; her brother Victor (Josie) of Stratford, CT; two nieces whom she loved and cared for, Yvette N. Hobbs of Madison Heights, Va. and Nora L. Venable of Lynchburg, Va. and a host of cousins and friends.

A special thanks to all of the doctors at Lynchburg Family Medicine and the nurses at ICU-Medical Unit and the Diabetic/Renal Unit who took such good care of her.

Thank God for the devoted friends, Lillian Austin-Jones, Ann Smith, Carsuella Penn of Amherst and Julia Frye of Charleston, WV. Rosetta will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

Tharp Funeral Home and Crematory of Lynchburg is assisting the family.
