Rosalie Haggard Herring, 89, passed away peacefully into the arms of her savior, Jesus Christ, on November 7, 2017, in her home surrounded by friends and family. Services will be held at Rabenhorst Funeral Home on Government Street on Saturday, November 11 at 2:00 pm. Visitation from 1:00pm-2:00pm. Rosalie was born February 14, 1928 in Greenwood, Louisiana to Sadie Wilhite Haggard and Hector Hennemeyer Haggard where she enjoyed her childhood days on her family’s dairy farm. After graduating Greenwood High School, Rosalie went on to get her Bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana where she met her husband of 67 years, Joe L. Herring. She also earned a degree from Northeast Louisiana University. In addition to raising her two daughters, Sandy and Jan, Rosalie worked and retired from the Louisiana Department of Health and Human Services. Rosalie was a member at University Baptist Church, involved in both young at heart and the grandmother’s prayer circle. She was an avid gardener and loved sports (especially LSU). Earlier in life she enjoyed fishing, tennis, archery, and horse shoes. One of her favorite pastimes was entertaining friends and family at their annual fish fry. Rosalie, also known as Gram, loved her family and loved them well. She adored her nine grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. Pall Bearers are Chat Kleinpeter, David Peterson, John Peterson, Joel Peterson, Josh Peterson, Andrew Grezaffi, Adam Meyer, Jacob Richardson, Charles Moore, and Andrew Jones. Rosalie was preceded in death by her mother, her father, her sisters Margo Robb, Carolyn Barney and her brother H.H. Haggard. Survivors: Joe L. Herring, husband; children, Sandy Kleinpeter and husband Chat; Jan Peterson and husband David; Frances Carlisle, sister; grandchildren, Kelle Grezaffi, Claire Meyer, Kate Richardson, John Peterson, Caroline Moore, Joel Peterson, Christy Jones, Elizabeth Peterson and Josh Peterson; and 14 great grandchildren. Have your life ready to meet Jesus…now, today, while there is time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.
