Rosa Ellis Moton

Mrs. Rosa Ellis Moton was born on October 22, 1922 of the late Charlie and Gracie Ellis in Surry County, Virginia. At an early age, she was baptized and joined Cypress Baptist Church. Throughout her life, she was a devout Christian. She loved leading songs of worship in the church and giving inspirational testimonies. She was a loving wife and mother to her nine children. She was a homemaker and her favorite hobbies were gardening, quilting, and cooking. In her community, she was well known for her missionary work. Wherever she went, she always made a friend. Her warm hearted spirit was infectious and people could not help but adore her. In 1996, she went to live her remaining years with her beloved daughter Olivia Barnes. After an extended illness, she went to her eternal rest on January 20, 2018. She is preceded in death by her husband, Richard Moton, Sr., two sisters, Annie Brown and Doris Evans, and three brothers, William Ellis, Joseph Ellis Sr., and Ulysses Ellis.
