Rosa Mae Hitchcock McLean was born on August 2, 1948 to the late Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie & Elthel Mae Hitchock, Sr. in Baldwin County, GA.

Rosa grew up in the Hitchcock Community where she helped with the family farm. She attended the public school system where she received her education. She later traveled to New York City where she started her work career with the United Postal Service. In 1972, she returned back to Georgia and started her lovely family. Upon returning back to the work force, she was employed at Forstman (formerly JP Stevens). She became a member of Pine Ridge Baptist Church where she attended.

We shall remember “Rose” as a sweet woman with a beautiful smile and a humble heart. She was an amazing woman that loved to cook for her family and friends.
