  • Guestbook
Joan (Ross) Rosbottom 84, of Kerrville, Texas, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Thursday afternoon, November 2, 2023. She was the wife of Richard Rosbottom, to whom she was married for 65 wonderful years. She was born in Providence, Rhode Island. In 1982, she and her husband moved to Kerrville, Texas with their daughter and youngest son. As a dedicated and caring RN at Peterson Regional Medical Center, she fulfilled her lifelong passion for nursing for 35 years.

Joan was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and kindhearted friend. She was a wonderful listener and always said, ''Listening is the best communication skill one could have.'' She had the gift of compassion and always knew when someone needed a kind word or a spiritual lift. Her tremendous wit would always make you smile. Joan had a passion for gardening and loved being outside enjoying all of nature's beauty.

Joan is survived by her loving husband, Richard Rosbottom; her three sons, Kenneth Rosbottom and partner Brenda Day of Cumberland, Rhode Island, Donald Rosbottom and spouse Patricia Rosbottom of South Kingstown, Rhode Island and Steven Rosbottom of Fredericksburg, Texas; son-in-law, Clint Cox of Sarasota, Florida. She was blessed with four grandchildren, Katie, Elizabeth, Sean and Ali; and two great-grandchildren, Shiloh and Rosalene. She was predeceased by her daughter, Susan Rosbottom Cox; and daughter in-law, Arlene Rosbottom.

Relatives and friends are invited to a memorial service at 10:00 am, Saturday November 18, 2023, at Grimes Funeral Chapels, 728 Jefferson Street, Kerrville, Texas.

I’m sorry to hear of her passing.

Joan was my first cousin. Her mother and my mother were sisters. I have very few memories of Joan, possibly because of the age difference. Her brother George was 3 years older than me and I’m not sure in the difference between him and Joan.

I was going through some photos that were my Aunt Bea’s. There were pictures of Joan and her family, some of George with his nephews at Christmas. It triggered a google search and I found out that she died a little over a month before my mother.

Again, my deepest condolences.

I worked with Joan over the years at Peterson Hospital. She was a funny, loving, caring nurse, and a dear friend. I always knew it was going to be a day with smiles, when Joan was working. She will be missed.

Joan was a wonderful lady. While it's been years since we have met in person I still remember her wit and cheery disposition. Her presence will certainly be missed. My sympathy to the family and especially to Dick (he will remember me from our Holy Cross softball and volleyball teams). May the Good Lord bless you all and provide his comfort to you. Bruce Craft

So sorry for your loss.

Our sweet, sweet Grammy Joan. I have great memories of visiting Texas every summer as a kid- I loved swimming in the pool, going out to Maamcitas and visiting the various shopping villages with you. I loved having you and Granoa spend summers with us in Rhode Island as we all got older sharing chowder and clam cakes and lots of love and laughs. I know you’re now at peace and out of pain, and I’m so glad you’ll be meeting some special loved ones in heaven. The relationship you and Grandpa had was one only many dream of, and I was happy to be a witness to that kind of unconditional love. Please watch over us all and rest in everlasting peace.

Fondly remembering sharing many family events with Joan - happy times and sad times. We are keeping Dick and the rest of the family in our thoughts and prayers, and imagining Joan being enveloped by the peace and love of those who have gone before her. With sympathy. Steve and Tricia Hennessy

Though our opportunities to enjoy time with Joan were rare, they were wonderful! We will forever be grateful to Joan, and her much loved Richard, for bringing into this world and raising so well one of the dearest friends in Rozzie we could dream of. We’ll look out for your loved ones on Earth Joan as you smile upon them from the Heavens.
Much love and God’s comfort to the family.

I worked with Joanie over the years, she was a very caring nurse. I was so glad when she was assigned to care for my mother because I knew she would be kind to her.
