Rose Maria Forehand

Rose Maria Forehand, age 65, of Biloxi, MS passed away on October 13, 2023, in the comfort of her home in Woolmarket.

Rose was the sunshine of her home. She enjoyed taking care of anyone that walked through her door. She was always full of song and laughter. She retired from the Biloxi Housing Authority to be a full-time mother and grandmother. Her favorite hobby/pastime was taking care of her children, grandchildren, and animals. She worshiped God and all his glory at St. Michael Catholic Church and was never afraid to share the gospel. She was truly the rarest of roses.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Henrietta Roberts; mother, Jo Ann Weekly; aunt, Mary Ella Ronsonet; sister, Helen Martino; and brother, Guy Weekly.

Rose is survived by her husband of 39 years, Tracey Forehand; 2 children, Michael Lee and Toby Lee; 2 sisters, Mary Jo Barnett and Jacqueline Murray; 2 nieces, Bree Demoran and Debbie Havelin; nephew, James Demoran; 6 grandchildren, Tyler Lee, Brandon Lee, Kyle Hebert, Tera Lee, Tony Buchanan, and Lexi Lee; along with many other surviving family along the MS Gulf Coast.

There will be no service held out of respect for the family.

In lieu of sending flowers, we would love for you to donate whatever you are comfortable with to our local no-kill shelter. Rose absolutely loved any and all animals, including her sweet fur-baby, Maya. Please make all donations in Rose’s name:

Riemann Family Funeral Home, Gulfport, is serving the family.
