    Rosa Clarke Elliott, 91, of Kenbridge, Va. joined her family in Heaven on May 14, 2018. She was the widow of Carl Wilson Elliott; and the daughter of the late Flavious Fitzhugh Clarke and Bessie Robertson Clarke; sister of the late Aubrey F. Clarke, Lynwood C. Clarke, Ruth Smith, Bertha Clarke Hudson and Louise Hurt. She is survived by her children, Carl Elliott (Carolyn) of Kenbridge, Robert Elliott (Roxanne) of Greenville, SC and Yvonne Moore (Ronnie) of Kenbridge; her grandchildren, Wanda Anthony, Bryan Elliott (Tracy), Crystal Elliott (Jason) Morgan Bonke (James), Caroline Moore and Rachel Moore; great-grandchildren, Kayla and Benjamin Anthony, Tristan, Logan, Rylan and Bryleigh Elliott; her sister Mary Skinner and brother James T. Clarke. Rosa owned and operated Elliott’s Store for over 42 years. When we think of her we will always remember her beautiful smile and her unforgettable personality. She never met a stranger and was loved by everyone she met. Those who were fortunate to know her will best remember her kindness, warmth and humor. Each day will always be a memory; there will be many tears of sadness and some of joy. Even though her life here on earth has ended, we will continue to keep her in our hearts forever. Rosa was a member of Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Kenbridge, where funeral services will be held Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 11AM. Interment in the Kenbridge Heights Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the Clarke Funeral Home in Kenbridge on Wednesday May 16, from 6 to 8PM. In lieu of flowers please consider memorial donations to the American Heart Association or the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church.  Online condolences may be made at
