Jean Olivia Rozelle, daughter of William Moses and Hallie BowmanCrews, was born on December 16, 1941, in Bluefield, West Virginia. She answered her Master’s call to Glory on Sunday, September 3, 2023. Being the “Baby Girl”, she was spoiled from the beginning. She was exhibited the “bossy” teacher posture at a young age. Jean completed her formal education at Park Central High school, graduating in 1960. Then went on to attend Bluefield State College, where she pledged membership into Delta Sigma Theta Sorority in 1962 before graduating with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1964. Jean moved to Cincinnati in 1965 to begin a career in teaching with Cincinnati Public Schools that would last for 30 years before marrying her college sweetheart Ulysses Rozelle that same year. From this union two beautiful children were born, Kelly Jean and Ulysses Brandon.
Mrs. Rozelle had a profound impact on her students at the following schools: Kennedy Elementary, Roberts Jr. High, Dater and Hillcrest teaching Reading, Language Arts and English. Jean earned a Master’s degree from Xavier University (Ohio).
Mrs. Rozelle was extremely creative and fashion conscious. She was a skilled calligrapher that could paint on fabric. Jean loved her family, clothes, and Pepsi.
After suffering a stroke as a result of an aneurysm in 1994 she suffered paralysis on the left side of her body. Jean maintained her quick wit, sense of humor and “No-Filter” attitude which will truly be missed.
Jean was preceded in death by both parents William Moses and Hallie Bowman, her sisters, Frances Murdoc (Clarence), Eva Aileen Montgomery (John) Brother, Roger (Charlotte), Shirley (Rosemary), Robert (Kathy).
She leaves to cherish her memory, her loving daughter Kelly Jean, and son Ulysses Brandon. Siblings, Betty Graves, Amrizene Harris (Jacob), Benjamin David Cres (Aleneitha); granddaughter Tiffany; great grandsons, Lyndale and Damon. A host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
