Edythe Rosenvinge

April 17, 1926 — October 19, 2022


Edythe Lillian Rosenvinge, age 96, of Ocala passed away comfortably on October 19, 2022, at home with family by her side.

Born in the Bronx on April 17, 1926, to William and Gladys Foulkes, Edythe and her husband moved from Long Island, New York to Ocala, Florida in 1973.  A pro at shorthand, Edythe worked as a secretary for various organizations. A talented seamstress, she enjoyed making clothes for herself and her family. Edythe was an active member of both St. John Lutheran and Trinity Lutheran churches while an Ocala resident,  and was a lifelong supporter of Christian education. While her husband Alfred was still living, they enjoyed traveling together in their motorhome.  Edythe enjoyed spending time with her friends at the Eighth Street Senior Center, and loved playing cards, bingo, and socializing. She loved her family with all of her heart, and was always cheering on her grandkids and great-grands throughout her life.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Robert Foulkes and William Foulkes, step-brother August Schwenk, and husband Alfred T. Rosenvinge. She leaves behind to cherish her memory sons Alfred (Terry) Rosenvinge, Jr, Douglas (Joan) Rosenvinge, daughters Arlene (Thomas) Biggers and Lauren (Doug) McKee, sisters Gladys Zwarych and Susan (Ken) Hall, ten grandchildren, and six great grandchildren. Edythe’s family would like to express profound gratitude to Gabrielle, her caregiver, who loved both our beloved Gigi and the family well throughout the last 9 months of Edythe’s life. Gabrielle, Gigi loved you, as do we.

Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Countryside Funeral Home.

She will be laid to rest with her husband Alfred at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. John Lutheran School scholarship fund. A celebration of life will be held at St. John Lutheran Church on Sunday, November 13th, at 2 PM.
