Rosena Dumas

 Her children arise and call her blessed”-Proverbs 31:28


“Mama, Mommy, Grandma, Rose, Rosey, Tati, Friend, these are some of the names of our precious Rosena Dumas.


Born on August 29, 1946, in Cap-Haitian, Haiti, to Seide Dumas and Francoise Dumas. The fourth child of 11. She was always a protector of those she loved.


Her love for the Lord was incredible. Even in her sickness, she would raise her hands and give Him praise.  Even with her failing eyes, she had her Bible next to her reading.  She lived out her faith in God by how she treated others. She always made sure you were okay.  She would literally give her last. Even in her last days, she was always asking her grandchildren and her daughter, “Did you eat?”.


She always put others before herself, just as the Bible says we should.


She was full of life! She loved to take rides in the car just to look at different places. One of her favorite words was “wow”. She had this child-like joy when she looked at the world. It didn’t take much for her to be happy and to appreciate the little things in life.


She was the mother to her only child, Josie Cinalien. Their bond was indescribable. Josie was the pride of her life. The love between them was unshakeable. Even in her last days, she was making sure that Josie was okay. She held her face as she whispered her blessings to her.


She was a “mother” to many, whose lives she has touched beyond this life.  It was the way she cared about you that made you felt important to her.


She was the grandmother to Yvonika, Kahlea, and Amerh. They were the loves of her life. She would make sure each of them felt loved in a special way. She walked them to school each day and would have conversations that taught them life lessons that will carry them through their journey in life.


She was an amazing cook and she would always make sure to fix a plate for you. She also loved to work in the yard doing gardening and taking care of the plants.  She had that special touch that could bring a dying plant back to life.  She was an interior decorator. You would leave the house one way and when you came back, everything would be rearranged and you wondered how she managed to move all that heavy furniture by herself. 


She loved to look at the sunset. While she was in the hospital, she would make sure that her blinds were open so that she could look at the beauty in the sky, and just say “Wow.”


She loved her family and those she called friends.  She has left behind her beloved siblings, a host of nieces and nephews and a village of people who loved her beyond this lifetime. 


There is no one who could call your name like she would to make you feel so special as she did.


The sun set on her life, April 23, 2024, but her memories live on forever. Our hearts will forever have a missing piece that will never be replaced. We find strength in knowing that we will see her again. We know that she is dancing in heaven happily and has no more pain.


Thank you for the borrowed time you spent with us and the footprint you left on our hearts.  We will miss you forever, our forever angel, Rosena Dumas.
