Obituary for Rose Marie Mckee

Rose Marie McKee was born in Sherman, Texas on August 3, 1940. She was the youngest child of Lee Henry Gabriel and Malinda Elizabeth Sims Gabriel. Rose M. McKee peacefully transitioned from her earthly home to her heavenly home on Thursday, January 30, 2020. Rose received the Lord Jesus Christ at an early age and was baptized at the St. James United Methodist in Sherman, Texas. She graduated from Fred Douglas High School in Sherman where she excelled in her academic courses, graduating early in 1957. She was extremely smart and talented in typing; she attended a typing contest at Prairie View College when she was in ninth grade, winning first place typing 200 wpm. She also attended Hilton Tillotson College in Austin, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Charles Henry Gabriel.

She was an amazing cook and a genius on the domino table, if you sit down with her you were sure to get beat and hear her backing up her game. She was small in statue but big on discipline. Just ask her children! She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother to those she leaves to cherish her memory. She loved her siblings Herman, Joyce and Charles dearly and all those that she encountered loved her. During her time at Homestead Rehabilitation Center in Sherman, Texas, she served as President of the Residents Counselor and took her post very seriously. She later relocated to Millbrook Rehabilitation Center in Lancaster, Texas where she became active in Special Olympics and won many trophies in wheelchair races and wanted everyone to know that “She was the Champ”.

She leaves to cherish her memories; son Ronald Dewayne McKee (Ruby Faye) of Sherman, Texas, daughters, Norma McKee Briscoe of Sherman, Texas, Frances Anita McKee, Malinda Yvette McKee-Hennie, both of Desoto, Texas and Andrea Marie McKee of Abilene, Texas; 6 grandchildren, Terriel McKee of San Jose, California, Wash L. McKee, Tiffany Briscoe, Nasha McKee, Temera McKee and D’Andrea McKee all of Sherman, Texas; 16 great grandchildren; brother Herman Gabriel (Ann), Houston and their children (Melvin, Joseph, Laura and Patrick) and Joyce Owen (Grant) of Mississippi and their children (Peggy, Lori, Marty, Greta and Steve). She also leaves to cherish her memory, her daughters in love, Rosalind Tarkington (Ernest), Claudia Stewart, Tina Bruce, Phiebie Hutchins, Stella Lacey, Zakeiah Nelson and her daughter Londyn Nelson, Marie Gonzalez and a host of relatives and friends.
