Roselee Nice, 65, of Mechanicsville, MD passed away on January 28, 2017 in Mechanicsville, MD. She was born on June 10, 1951 to Norman and Gladyd Swann. Roselee lived in Rock Point, MD in Charles County near Cobb Island until she was 9 years old, when her father passed away. Her father’s nickname for her was Mouse, (which explains the tags to her car. Lol) The family then moved to Prince Frederick, MD off of Sixes road. It was there she met her first husband James Fannon, they had 2 beautiful daughters together, Vickie Pendleton and Trish Villari. Her husband James passed away in 1978. She then had her son Robert Shiftlett and daughter Tina Wood. Rose met George Nice when her children were young. Rose and George reconnected in 1983 and were married in April of 1988, and have been the best of friends and pretty inseparable ever since. They were married for 29 years but have had a friendship for over 50 years.
In their free time Rose and George liked to take trips to Dover Downs and play the slots. There was apparently a little slots junky in her and she loved the thrill of playing the slots, they also would play Bingo every now and then.
She was a very loving wife and always made sure she had Georges Breakfast ready for him in the morning, so that he would have a full stomach on his way to work. Roselee is survived by her husband George; her children Vickie Pendelton and Trish Villari of White Sands, MD; Robert Shiftlett, Tina Wood, and Christopher Pumphrey. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and her grandchildren. The family will be having a graveside service on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 10:00 AM in Asbury Cemetery, located in Barstow, MD. The pallbearers for Reselee will be Donald Lee Nice, John Nice, Walter Nice, Robert Nice, JR Nice and Dawson Nice. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the RAUSCH Funeral Home of Port Republic, MD.
