Sandra “Sandy” Kay Roseberry, 54, of Fairfax, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, after a very courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. A Victory Celebration of Life was held on Feb. 12 at Maranatha Bible Church in Cedar Rapids, conducted by Pastor Aaron Telecky. Burial was at the Center Point Cemetery.
Sandy was born on Aug. 24, 1959, in Cedar Rapids to Alvin and Bernice Brunscheen. She grew up in and near Mechanicsville, graduating from Lincoln High School, Stanwood in 1976. She married David Roseberry on Nov. 22, 1991, in Center Point; they later lived in Alburnett; Roscoe, Ill.; Uvalde, Texas; and Fairfax.
Sandy provided daycare and cleaned houses to stay home with her children. She also worked for Ament Engineering, Quaker Oats and Linn County. She was blessed to enjoy being a part of the Maranatha Bible Church family.
She is survived by her husband, David; mother, Bernice Brunscheen of Mechanicsville; children, Joshua (JoAnn) Barker of Hartford, Ill.; Dawn (Todd) Pershy of Walker, Lindsay Barker of Cedar Rapids, and at home, Kyle and Blake Roseberry and daughter/granddaughter, Makena Mally; stepsons, Josh (Missy) Roseberry of Atkins, Roger Roseberry of Vinton, and Micky Roseberry of Center Point; eight grandchildren; siblings, Bill (Cheryl) Brunscheen of Solon, Cheryl (Larry) Herren of Polk City, Bob (Sandi) Brunscheen of Clarence, Connie (Jon) Buss of Boone, and Scott (Karen) Brunscheen of West Des Moines, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces-and-nephews, cousins, and friends.
