Roslyn attended Mifflin High School in Columbus, OH. As an adult Roslyn accepted Christ and attended Trinity Baptist Church.

Roslyn’s nurturing ways made it perfect for her to be a childcare provider for over 20 years.

Roslyn had a love for life, she enjoyed cooking (no one could cook as good as she could according to her), bargain shopping (with big sis), and considered herself The Ohio State Buckeyes’ number one fan. Roslyn was a loving “Nana” it brought her great joy hanging out and celebrating life with family and friends. She was also a member of the Flames Motorcycle Club and was fondly referred to as “Similac”.

On August 1, 2021, God called her home. She was proceeded in death by parents, maternal and paternal grandparents, grandson, and brother-in-law.

Roslyn leaves behind to cherish her memories Roderick McLean, fiancé, sons Rickey (Joanie), Roderick Jr., daughter Rolana, 5 granddaughters, 8 grandsons, and 1 great-grandson. Six siblings, Rose (Will), Joyce, Donald, Sharon, James (Monique), and Michael. She also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

  1. Remembering the family in this time of sorrow. May the support of family and friends be a source of strength and the God of comfort a refuge in your time of need. Truly sorry for your loss.

    May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. Our most sincere condolences.

  3. I am praying for comfort as this is just devastating. Roslyn was such gift to our family. She loved my baby Avery and gave her extraordinary care. She would share her great meals with me (she knew I hated to cook), opened her doors to my other child when needed, gave me coupons lol and shared my love of all things Buckeye. I pray for her family whom she loved dearly. Family was everything to Ros. Man I will miss her. I hope she knows how much she has meant to us and that we love her so much.

    The Lindsey Family. Such a great family, we had the honor of knowing her Mother Ann. Ann was such a great person and we worked together In Child Welfare. Such a great experience of doing community work and serving families. Ann’s daughter also carried on the love her Mother had for life and families. Sending prayers and support during this difficult time. May you all rest in The Lord.

  5. My deepest condolences to Roz’s family. She will be truly missed by all family and friends. Was glad to be one of them.
