Obituary for ROSALEE FREELAND

Rosalee Freeland, 87, of Forestville, MD passed away on February 19, 2012 at her residence. She was the youngest child of twelve children of the late Rev. Charlie H. Range and Hattie M. Range, was born on April 30, 1924 in Macon, Georgia. After the death of her parents, Detroit, Michigan became her home which was also the residence of many of her relatives. Rosalee was a first lieutenant in the United States Army. She was inducted into the Army Nurse Corps on July 30, 1953. During her career in the U.S. Army, she met the love of her life, Carl E. Freeland, her late husband of 36 years, who was also in the United States Army. This union was blessed with four children: two sons, Carl (Chuckie) who preceded his mom in death and Andre, and twin daughters, Carlene and Charlene. Rosalee was an active and faithful member of the Third Street Church of God located in Washington, D.C. until her health declined. Her love for God and her faith in Him was always prevalent in her life including her last moments when she called for Jesus and said; 'Jesus, help me please.' (Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of faith is to see what we believe.) Spending time with her family and friends along with singing and playing the organ brought Rosalee much joy and fulfillment. She was an avid writer (whiz with the pen) and enjoyed writing poems. She also had a wonderful sense of humor. Siblings preceding her in death were brothers, Charlie, Dennis, Phillip, Thomas, Harris, William, Johnny and Edward and sisters, Cora Range, Fannie Range Smith and Mary Range Boyd Clinkscales. She leaves to cherish fond memories her daughters, Carlene L. Hernandez (Danny) and Charlene F. Coello (Tony); her son, Andre Freeland; one granddaughter, Maritza C. Barbot (Henry); four grandsons, Demetrius Hernandez, Christopher Hernandez, Carl Hernandez and Dalton Freeland; one great-granddaughter, Jadyn M. Barbot: and a host of other relatives and friends.
