Rosalie "Rosie" Elliott Huffman, 79, passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, September 21, 2016. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Herman F. Huffman; sister, Grace Elliott Presser of Panama City, FL; daughter, Anita Huffman Means (Michael); grandchildren (their beloved "MawMaw"), Angela Catalan (Dan Savage), Shari Barlow (Sam), Heather Clark (Matt), and Bradley Guild great grandchildren, Alex Savage, Brandon Savage, Sabrina Savage, Joshua Barlow, William Barlow, Adam Clark, and Isaac Clark. Other integral members of her surviving family are her nieces and nephews, Robert Price (Sandy), Dr. Gregory Presser (Marie) and Sue Baird of Panama City, Lynda Presser, and their children. She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Bertie Elliott, and sister, Retha Elliott Price.
Rosie was born on November 3, 1936 in Haines City, FL, the youngest of three girls. She graduated from Anderson High School in Anderson, Indiana in 1955. She met her husband Herman Huffman while working for Firestone in Noblesville, Indiana. They were married in 1959 and moved to Jupiter to be with family. A devoted, compassionate and spirited person, Rosie was always prepared to assist, counsel, and listen to all, but her family and especially all the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were the loves of her life. She enjoyed fishing, bowling, gardening, and reading. Rosie was instrumental in starting the first softball league in Jupiter at the Kiwanis Park in the 1960's. She had a love of gaming that included annual vacation trips to Biloxi. A keen card player and bingo expert, Rosie always kept a close tab on the rules and a watchful eye on her competitors. Every Saturday, she could be found with her cousin, Iris Kohl, making the rounds at local garage sales.
A Funeral service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, September 24 at Taylor and Modeen Funeral Home, 250 Center Street, Jupiter. The family will receive friends at 1:30pm for viewing.
