Dinah G. Calfee

January 27, 1957 — January 12, 2015

Dinah Gail Rose Calfee, 57, of Cleveland went home to be with the Lord her Savior on Monday, January 12, 2015. She passed away at her home surrounded by her family. She was a longtime member of Unity Church of God. She enjoyed praising the Lord and helping with the church activities. She loved spending time with her family and always had an amazing time with her grand kids, nieces and nephews. She certainly had a way of spoiling each of them. It was easy to say that she was loved by everyone who knew her. She was preceded in death by her father, Henry Taylor Rose; two brothers, John Henry Rose and Henry Taylor Rose, Jr.; grandparents, Luther Rose and Ollie Howard Rose, Yules Simpson and Mary Elizabeth Moore Simpson; and several uncles and aunts. Survivors include her mother, Elizabeth Jeraldine Simpson Rose of Cleveland, one son, Jason Calfee (Lisa); three brothers, Don Rose (Kim), David Rose (Margaret), and Matthew Rose (Angie); two sisters, Elizabeth Ann Rose Flowers, and Linda Sue Rose Byers (Randy); two grandchildren, Josh Stewart and Olivia Harris; beloved friend, Richard Dale Calfee; and several nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 14, 2015 in the chapel of Fike Funeral Home with the Reverends Grady Simpson and David Rose officiating. Interment will follow at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Athens with Randy Byers, Donny Rose, Matthew Rose, Tony Smith, Jeffery Brown, Darrell Brown and Jeff Lewallen serving as pallbearers. Kenny Saxe, Jonathan Rose, Blake Rose and William Winters will serve as honorary pallbearers. A white dove release ceremony will conclude the service.
