Roselyn June (Howard) Wiley

January 22, 1957 ~ September 7, 2021 (age 64)


Memorial Service will be Live-streamed from Victory Missionary Baptist Church's Facebook and YouTube page.


Roselyn June Howard Wiley, 64, of Russellville, passed peacefully on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, at St. Mary's Regional Medical Center in Russellville.  The daughter of Earl Fred and Mary Lucille Sheeler Howard, she was born January 22, 1957, in Cincinnati, OH. 

She was a 1975 graduate of Princeton High School in Cincinnati and attended Tennessee Temple University.  She and Robert Wiley met in 1998 in Russellville and they were married on April 1, 1998.  She worked for Home Instead where she was deeply appreciated and loved by her colleagues and clients.

As a faithful servant of Jesus Christ, and a member of Victory Missionary Baptist Church, she focused her attention on the truly vulnerable members of the Lord’s body, bringing to them the comfort of food, the gift of being fully present with the kindness of listening.  When shopping, her focus was on the needs of the elderly who lived alone. 

With a kind and gentle spirit, Roselyn was known for her sense of humor, style, her hat collection and love of family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, infant sister, brothers-in-law, Jeff Miller and Mike Ginsberg.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Robert Wiley; Sons, Thomas A. (Crystal) Robertson, Cliffside, NC; Don Howard (Stephanie) Robertson, Asheville, NC; Stepsons, Robbie Wiley, Dover, Scott Wiley, US Air Force, HI; Grandsons, Austin Robertson, Dylan Robertson, Levi Robertson, all of Asheville, NC. Four sisters and a brother, Carolyn Jackson, Xenia, OH, Gary (Sheila) Howard, Sharonville, OH, Marilyn (Michael) Young, Mason, OH, Madelyn Ginsberg, Russellville, Evelyn (Jeff) Bellman, Loveland, OH.

Honorary pallbearers: Matthew Palmer, Sarah Robinson, Dennis Howard, Suzy Cole, Jacob Howard, Roxi Wolf, Jason Young, Brandon Uehlein, Kerry Roberts, Jessica Ginsberg, Angela Hensley, Lindsey Bellman and Nick Bellman.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2:00PM, Thursday, September 9, 2021, at Victory Missionary Baptist Church with Rev. Michael Weatherford officiating.
