Rosalyn was a kind, good , fun person.She made everyone she met a better person. the hundreds of children whose lives she helped mold and affect are testament to the person she was. To Bud, Kim and Brian I morn her passing but celebrate knowing her . she will certainly reside in the lords house.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Lee and I met Bud and Rosalyn at First Baptist as Newlyweds in 1965. Our friendship involved our Children, most church activities such as Sunday school, Choirs, Bible School. etc. We enjoyed and valued our friendship over the years. Rosalyn taught me tennis lessons along with several other young women through our church. What fun we had!We interacted also through our teaching professions at WMHS and enjoyed each others company and experiences as high school teachers. We also interacted through our many lady friends in church and book clubs whereRosalyn was always smiling and upbeat. She was a genuine happy person who made you feel better by being around her. She certainly lived her Christianity everyday! Although you all as a family will miss her terribly, you have the assurance that she is enjoying Heaven with Jesus and you will see her again one happy day! Maybe Rosalyn is organizing some tennis lessons right now in Heaven! My love and prayers for that special peace! Camille Adair

Dear Odom family...Rosalyn was such a dear person! She made such an impact on me as a young person. She was so encouraging. Taught me to play tennis and how to change a flat tire! My prayers are with you all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bud and their family at the loss of Rosalyn. She was such a sweet and caring person. We have wonderful memories of tennis events at Pine Hills CC in Calhoun where Rosalyn was a fierce competitor. Her smile and sense of humor always came through.

Rosalyn brought so much joy to my life every time I saw her, or just heard her name. She was so cheerful, optimistic and beaming with Sonshine. I could always see Jesus in her. You will be missed.

Rosalyn and I have been friends since 1st grade. She has remained the smiling, up beat person throughout her life. Her empathy for others and her Christian faith made her the unique individual she was. To Bud and the family I am so sorry for your loss but the knowledge of her eternity is, I know, a great comfort to you. Henry Chriceol

Rosalyn was a very special friend and colleague as we shared an office together at Riser Jr High many years ago. She was a professional and Christian mentor to me. My thoughts and prayers are with the family!

I went to school with Rosalyn and her brother Bud many years ago. I knew her mother and daddy and went many times to the service station they owned across from Mangham school. They had a wonderful family and will never be forgotten. Rosalyn fought a hard battle and know she is in heaven now with no pain. Sympathy to all of her families. God bless her husband children and Bud and other family members.

Rosalyn truly embodied being a "mentor" before that was defined. She surely influenced me in such a positive, unforgettable way. She and Bud were quite the "A" team in encouraging us youngsters. Reunion one day. Sending prayers to the family.
Mike Ryals left a message on March 7, 2022:
I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart is breaking for you Bud, and the rest of the family. Sending lots of love your way. Rosalyn was like a mom to me and helped me during difficult times growing up. Rosalyn was always there for me. She was that kind of person. Rosalyn and Bud were positive role models for me and some of the principals I live by today were taught to me by them.
