Rosine Lucillia (Corey) Long (March 18, 1933 – June 18, 2020)

Rosine was raised in a Christian home that centered on service to the Lord Jesus Christ. She graduated from Lima South High School as Valedictorian (Lima, Ohio), and graduated With Honors from Ft. Wayne Bible College (Ft. Wayne, Indiana). Consistent with her training for a life of Christian Ministry, she married Charles J. Long and supported him throughout her life in church ministries in Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. She committed unselfishly to teaching, musical productions and music ministry with both adults and children, Bible School, and led in many roles with the Women’s Missionary Society, church boards, Christian Education, and support to Youth Ministries. Further, her flannelgraph Bible School stories are legendary and are one of the best parts of my childhood. She created her own masterpieces showing palaces and gardens to illustrate the Bible story.

She was a hero to her immediate and extended family, as well as church family. Her personal interests included music, art, knitting or crocheting, and reading. She did illustrate a book that was published; and also did oil paintings for income. All those interests took a back seat with the birth of her grandchildren which she doted on for years and years. She helped create a train set background for the pleasure of the grandchildren, and found great joy attending sporting events of the grandchildren. Her gentle and loving spirit is an inspiration to us all.

Rosine was preceded in death by her husband (Rev. Charles J. Long), her parents (Sue and Alvah Corey), a sister (Patti Buggs); and sister-in-law (Carolyn “Chick” Corey); and brother-in-law (Don Mumaugh). She is survived by her children, Charles D. Long (Sara); Cheryl Hosey (Darrell); and Cindy Roeder (David); and grandchildren, Brad Long (Vanessa); Kristi Karel (Matt); as well as great-grandchildren, loving extended family, including her Uncle Lewis Allendorph (Annie) and all the Allendorph family, as well as many loving nieces and nephews.

Of note, she never received a paycheck for all of the church ministry. Her name did not appear in State Ministry Rosters or any of the states in which she served. There were no GoFundMe accounts. But her service was one of integrity, love, and sacrifice for the Glory of God’s Kingdom – and her reception in Heaven was most assuredly a High Moment and Celebrated Event. She continued to have the Joy of the Lord in her heart to the day she passed peacefully from this life to the Glory and Splendor of Heaven and re-uniting with her family and the Lord Jesus Christ on those beautiful shores. Her life was a blessing and those who knew her best were truly Honored to Share in Her Life. She is loved and will be in the hearts of those she touched forever. (Tribute submitted by Cheryl Hosey).

There was nothing like - SUNDAY DINNERS - made by Rosine Long. She arose very early every Sunday to prepare the carrots, and potatoes, and the roast and place them in the oven (in the days before crock pots). Our Sunday dinner cooked all through Sunday School and church services. All this, plus make sure her three children were dressed and ready for church. (As an adult, I tried that at various times - it's a real challenge.) Often, we (as children) were allowed to bring a friend home with us from church to spend the day -and so they enjoyed our wonderful meal and fellowship as well. It is a pleasant memory and through the YEARS, on every Sunday - I think of those HAPPIER DAYS of REAL SUNDAY DINNERS with Mother and Dad and the entire family around the table. (Blessed is the Heart of Such a Mother and Blessed are the hands that fed us and toiled for us for so many years.) And, yes, BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART, FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD. (Matthew -chapter 5)

I have at least two recurring memories of Rosine. She was my eldest sister, so I very much looked up to her. My first memory would be that when I was very young, probably only three or four, I had one of several surgeries for a cleft palate I was born with. I remember being in a baby or child's bed in the hospital. In those days there were stricter rules about siblings being allowed to visit. I remember standing up in my bed, holding onto the railing, and seeing Rosine standing in the doorway to my room, not allowed to come in. However, in my memory, she threw a paper airplane toward me. I actually go back and forth about whether this was a true memory or a dream I might have had once. Anyway, that "memory" ends there. This next one was no dream. - I can still see her walking around our parent's living room as an older teenager with a book on her head, to "improve her posture" I think. I thought it looked silly to me. I think she had Patty and maybe Carol doing it too! - We had good times many times at our house. I want to include something about our Mother. She would sometimes sing, "Count Your Blessings". When it came to the words, "Name them one by one", our Mother would then insert in the song the names of all of her children ; "Rosy-Patty-Carol-Johnny-Ellen-Marilyn", then continue with the rest of the song. She did this many times over a number of years, and it made a strong impression on me. Mostly, proof of her love and care for all of us.

Yes - I heard the story often about the song - Count Your Blessings - and Mother (Rosine Long) would sing it her Mom's way - inserting all 6 names). Thanks for sharing, Uncle Johnnie.

Mother's posture etiquette - continued with her child-rearing. She was always saying - set your shoulders straight. (Wonder who told her to walk around with Book on her Head.) Fun - stuff. Thanks !!

Finally Home.
Just think of stepping on a shore and finding it heaven.
Of touching a hand and finding it God's
Of breathing new air and finding it's celestial.
Of waking up in glory and finding it home.

She has been reunited with her loving husband of 64 years; her Corey family; and also Jim and Helen Long as well as Dick and Evelyn Long (From Dad's side of the family) and so many others. I LOVE THINKING ABOUT how wonderful it must be *** to be in God's Heaven which surpasses the beauty o any of the World Destinations known to mankind. Rejoicing in her behalf. God's Promises are True. Heaven is Real.

What beautiful words you put together for your dear mother Cheryl Hosey. I remember those visits to Lima also. Aunt Rosy was always vibrant full of positive energy and optimism. I have no doubt her enthusiastic personality helped to lead and support the ministry of her husband and that she independently contributed her own gifts to both family and her community.
While we miss our dear loved ones tremendously here on earth and their closeness. It’s fulfilling to know their work is done here and they have been promoted to much bigger and better endeavors together with our loved ones in heaven and with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May God be with all those close to Aunt Rosy at this time and allow you to feel peace and joy in your hearts at this time of her passing.

Cheryl Hosey Posted at 01:56am

Thank you so very kindly Julie. I know this comes from a place of experience, and yet we also share in the joy of knowing and believing in the "promotion" to a place of great splendor and love and peace. Your words are a blessing of kindness and understanding. Blessings dear Julie. (from Cheryl)

I remember that my Mom (Carol, one of Rosy’s sisters) would often comment on how smart “Aunt Rosy” was. I remember that, being the oldest of six siblings, my Aunt Rosy was often a leader in the family, coming to Grandma Corey’s house and making Uncle Charlie fix it up (I think it was the first time I had ever seen a bandsaw); and the rest of us got to paint. I remember as a young teen when she and Uncle Charlie came to stay at our house for a few days, how she encouraged me to keep playing the piano. Uncle Charlie’s jokes were unparalleled, and she would say, “Oh, Charlie!” And when she would say, “Well, Charlie has a sermon to write,” that meant that they had to say goodbye. Since this was before the days of word processors, I always thought about what an endless job all that sermon writing must have been, and I always wondered if Aunt Rosy might help if he ever found himself staring at a blank page. As her niece, I’m thankful that Aunt Rosy was one of those supportive adults in my life. She was a woman of grace, spunk, and character. –Ruth (Mumaugh) Nalliah
