April 8, 1953 ~ October 24, 2022

We are sad to announce the passing of Rose Mary Van Norman (Goodman, Hubbard) 69, on Monday, October 24, 2022. She was born on April 8, 1956, living much of her life in Clio, Michigan. She was retired and currently full time RV’ing in Metter, Georgia and loving every minute of it. She held many jobs throughout the years with her last one being at Target in Fenton, Michigan. Before that, she spent many years at various Home Depot locations and also at Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, Michigan. She attended church services at Pulaski Missionary Baptist Church near Metter, Georgia and was a member at The River Church in Holly, Michigan.

She loved doing puzzles, cooking, shopping, being near water, spending time with her Clio Class of ’73 friends, boating, driving like she thought she was a Nascar driver, watching the Food Network while eating popsicles and going to bible study.

Free spirited and wild Rose is survived by her brother Tim, her three children, daughter Carrie (Stephen) Nickel, sons Mark Hubbard and Michael Hubbard, nine grandchildren, Hayden, McCullen, Malina, Isabella, Cameron, Analei, Avery, Liberte, Mark and one great granddaughter Hendrix. She is also survived by her lifelong best friend Marilyn Burton, her other best friend, her poodle Nikki, many nieces, nephews, and beloved friends. She was proceeded in death by her parents Charles and Mary Goodman, her sister Carrie, her brothers Charlie and Mike and her nephew Denny.

We would like to say a special thank you to her friends at The Beaver Run Campground in Metter, Georgia for their love and support the past year that she spent with them. She truly loved the new friends she made there.

There will be a visitation on Saturday, November 5th from 10:00AM-11:30AM and a celebration of Rose’s life starting at 12:00PM at The River Church 8393 E. Holly Rd Holly, Michigan 48442. Luncheon will follow at the church.

      I met Rose when I married her brother Tim. Even tho it was a long time ago I have such fond memories of her. From visiting her and the family in Missouri to her living with us in Clarkston Michigan. She was my awesome sis in law, my hairdresser, my playmate when we loved to play puttputt. Back in the day our kids hung out together and she was my best friend. I remember when she brought Mikey home from the hospital. We use to watch each others kids. Sure wish I knew she wS in Georgia I would have visited her. My condolences go out to her family.

    • Rhea Willing says:

      I met Rose when she came here to Beaver Run and she became my big sister. We shared many talks…tears and laughter. God brought her from Michigan to Georgia because God knew I was going to need a close friend when grief hit. She was there more like a sister to me than friend. One of our last memories is our road trip to Macon. It was a gift from God to both of us that day!!! I thank God for the time I knew her so until we meet again…at Heaven’s gate…..I know God has another sweet angel.

    Words cannot express how I feel . My heart is broken in so many pieces. She will always have a place in my heart. I will miss her terribly. She was always there when I needed her. She knew that she could call me or txt me at any hour . She was my best friend and partner in crime since we were 14 and in the 9th grade. Until we meet again in heaven. Fly high . I love you Rosie ❤️
