Rose Alice Cumbie passed away at Chesapeake Regional Healthcare on October 9th at the age of 90. Rose was born in Camden, N.J. on May 31, 1933.

Rose is predeceased by her husband James Cumbie, Sr., son James Cumbie, Jr., and grandson Nicholas Madaloni. Rose served as an air-raid warden and later worked at Whitman’s Candy factory and the Campbell’s Soup factory. As a teenager she frequently visited Atlantic City and Philadelphia with friends; where she danced on American Bandstand. Rose was 22 years old when she met and married James Cumbie. As a military spouse she lived in Illinois, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia. Her hobbies included shopping (her favorite), word search puzzles, and watching game shows. As a grandmother Rose helped raise her five grandchildren and three great- grandchildren. Rose always made sure anyone that walked into her home was fed and happy – usually leaving with a bag of candy too!

Rest in Christ Aunt Goldie. I have been trying to call for the past few months. My grandmother Janie and dad Steve both passed away just going on 2 years… So much has transpired over here in South Jersey.. Aunt Goldie was such a great lady with big heart and when my grandfather (her brother Junior) (Uncle Junior Wassie) passed away, she showed so much love and concern for us especially my grandmother (her sister in law (Aunt Janie) I pray and hope in the future that our family pulls together again after so many years of being apart….. I would love to rekindle that relationship with those of us who are left. Learning about her passing today as I went online actually hit me as I realized she was the last of grandpops siblings and one with a heart of gold. Her name truly fit who she was. Although we may have all been apart as a family for so many years, everyone is still thought of and prayed for from us. -Much love and many prayers sent to Terrie, Debbie, grandkids, cousins and down the list. (Cousin Steven Kwiatkowski Jr) (Steve’s Son) Wassie Junior and Frances Kwiatkowskis Grandson
