Reta Pauline Roseberry Obituary

Reta Pauline Roseberry, a beacon of love and creativity, passed away peacefully on April 24, 2024, at the age of 82 in Springfield, Oregon. Born on August 30, 1941, in Nevada, Missouri, Reta's life was a tapestry of family, friendship, and heartfelt service to others.


Reta was the cherished daughter of Cecil and Coral (Ferguson) Stacy. Her early years in Missouri were filled with the warmth of a close-knit family and the joys of small-town life. In her youth, Reta's heart led her to Phillip Roger Hendrix, and the two were married in their hometown of Nevada, Missouri. Their union was blessed with three children, Robin Hendrix of Wichita, Kansas, Randall Hendrix of Pleasant Hill, Oregon, and Tamra Carpenter of Pleasant Hill, Oregon. After Phillip and Reta’s divorce, Reta found love again with Charles "Chuck" Roseberry, and they joined their lives in Creswell, Oregon. Reta's family was the cornerstone of her life, and she was a devoted mother and grandmother, leaving behind a legacy of eight grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren who will cherish her memory. Reta is also survived by her siblings, Beverly Sayles of Eugene, Oregon, and Nelda Dooley of Cottage Grove, Oregon. And preceded in death were her siblings Bill, Irene, Delmar, John, Della Mae, Jimmy, Kay and Shirley.


Throughout her life, Reta embraced the role of homemaker and stay-at-home mother with grace and dedication. Her nurturing spirit extended beyond her own family as she opened her heart and home to help run an elderly foster care home. Reta's entrepreneurial spirit shone brightly as a restauranteur and a buyer and seller of vintage and second-hand merchandise. Her keen eye for beauty and potential in the old and forgotten brought new life to countless treasures.


Reta's interests were also a reflection of her creativity. She found solace and joy in gardening, and music filled her home and heart, often serving as the soundtrack to her many projects, including her passion for redoing furniture. Reta's hands were rarely still, as she was always creating, fixing, and beautifying the world around her. A cherished friend of the Eagles Club, Reta's friendly demeanor and willingness to lend a hand made her a beloved figure within the community. Her involvement was not just a pastime but a testament to her commitment to fellowship and service.


Please join Reta’s family in remembering and celebrating her legacy at her memorial service, Friday, May 31st, 2024 at 1:00pm at Sunset Hills Funeral Home, with an inurnment to follow. A potluck luncheon will be held at The Eagle's Club, 1978 Main Street, Springfield, Oregon 97477 at 3:00pm following the memorial services.
