Rosaline Marie Word

May 4, 1924 — Feb. 26, 2014

Rosaline Marie Word, 89, of Fairfield, Calif., went to be with the Lord on Feb. 26, 2014.

The fourth of eight children, she was born in St. Charles, Mo., May 4, 1924, to Frank L. and Dora Marie Oberle.

On May 6, 1944, she married Roy Lloyd Word Jr., who was serving in the United States Navy. Their marriage lasted nearly 70 years and their love and commitment to one another has become a precious legacy to their family.

During World War II, while her husband served in the Pacific, Rosaline worked in the defense industry and truly was “Rosie the Riveter.” As a military wife, she made her home in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Missouri, Illinois, California, Alaska and Utah before settling down in Fairfield nearly 50 years ago. Rosaline’s family was her life and she did a great job of raising three children while moving about the country. She loved helping others and gave selflessly to all who knew her. She volunteered with Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, served as a deaconess at her church, volunteered with Air Force family services and lovingly cared for the people in the neighborhoods in which she lived. She was an accomplished roller skater and a prize-winning seamstress. She enjoyed painting and crocheting, and her knowledge and love of cooking was shared with many.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings and her infant son, Lawrence Roy Word.

She is survived by her loving husband, Roy L. Word Jr.; children, Joy Marie Kinney of Littleton, Colo., Roy L. Word III of Fairfield, Calif., and Jon M. Word of Las Vegas, Nev.; 10 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

Interment will be at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, 2014, at Suisun-Fairfield Cemetery, 1707 Union Ave., Fairfield, in the Masonic section. A celebration of life will follow the interment at 2 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, 600 Gregory St., Fairfield.

Any memorial contributions may be made to Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals or to Calvary Baptist Church. Arrangements under the care of Fairfield Funeral Home, 425-1041.
