Mrs. Rose Fountain Alston, the daughter of the late Cary and Eva Fountain was born on July 29, 1910 in South Carolina, where she attended school. Later she met and married the late Arthur Alston, Sr. and moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This union was blessed with two sons, and they shared a close and happy family life together.
Rose was of the Baptist faith. She was a caring and loving mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. She was a homemaker and a hard worker. Later on in life she attended Beaumont School of Practical Nursing and graduated in February, 1953.
We will never forget her, we thank God for her long life with us and all the love she gave us.
