Barbara Gayle Montgomery Rosamond, 74, of Canton, MS died on Sunday, November 5, 2017 after a courageous battle.  Born August 5, 1943 in Carthage, Barbara was a lifelong resident of Canton.

She was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. E. J. Montgomery also of Canton.  Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, Earnest and Lorene Montgomery; daughter, Pamela Rae Rosamond; brothers, Billy Montgomery and Marion Montgomery.  Survivors include: husband of 34 years, Charles Raymond Rosamond, Jr.; daughter, Loren Kimberlee Rosamond Chambers; sister, Jerrilyn Montgomery Matthews; and nieces and nephews that she loved as though they were her own children.  

Barbara and Raymond have a very loving heart and many people refer to them as "Mama & Pops". While these people are not blood kin they are our family just the same. Through the years the list has grown and Barbara has cherished each and every one of them.  

At Barbara's request there will be no funeral; however, her final resting place will be her family cemetery at Forest Grove, MS., time and date will be announced later.   

Memorials may be made to CARA of MS or the animal shelter of your choice.
