Rose met Hillard Brittain in 1953 when he was in the military and stationed in England. They began a journey that could be called a true love story, were married in June of 1954 and built an amazing and beautiful life together. Rose was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her most treasured moments were spent with her family. To Momo, as her grandkids would call her, family was everything. Rose loved animals, tending to her roses and traveling. She also enjoyed cooking, crossword puzzles and reading. The light and love that she brought to her family and friends will be dearly missed.
Rose is survived by her son, Johnny J. Brittain and wife, Linda of Shreveport, Louisiana; daughters, Sandra Landrum of Spring, Texas, Jan Ayres of England, Norma Terry of Walkersville, Maryland and Sherry Thompson and husband, Robert of Seabrook, Texas; brother, Norman Andrews of England; sister, Violet Nancy Miller of Indianapolis, Indiana; grandchildren, Darlene, Lisa, Jennie, Melissa, Robert, Jennifer, Brandy, Joshua and Johnny; three step-grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren; nine step-great-grandchildren; five step-great-great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Hillard F. Brittain; parents, Arthur and Audrey Andrews; and brother, George Andrews.
