March 3, 1945 - April 30, 2022
On Saturday, April 30, 2022, Rosetta Anderson-Burch, lovingly known as Rosie by family and close friends, departed this life and went home to glory. Rosetta was born to the late Robert Williams and Hazel Lee Anderson. While in high school, then Rosetta Anderson, exemplified a strong allegiance to social justice as she and other civil rights leaders demonstrated against inequality. After graduating from high school, Rosetta went on to attend the Community College of Philadelphia. She later joined Community Legal Services as a Legal Analyst before working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She held several positions mostly centered around social services and secretarial work before retiring from Moog Components Group. She came out of retirement and had a brief stint at the County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA) before deciding to retire permanently. Rosetta was introduced to Christ at a very young age and recognized His presence early on in her life. This submission led her to join First African Baptist Church of Sharon Hill, later answering the call to become a Deaconess, where she served alongside her forever love and husband, Joe Burch. Overtime, her walk with Christ enveloped into a personal relationship and resonated with everyone she came into contact with. Each incremental step with Christ led to her securing her place with our Creator and comfort spreading His word. It was at this stage in her life that she committed to living for Christ, becoming laser focused on eternity, while dedicating herself to endeavors that had eternal significance. Before her health became a challenge, she was an active and dedicated Deaconess, serving on several ministries; Youth Discipleship, Children's Nursery, Food Cupboard, Flower Guild, Vacation Bible Study, as well as, The Voices of Joy. Outside of serving Christ, Rosetta's top priority was caring for her family; there was nothing she wouldn't do, no matter how big or small the task. Committed to our overall well-being, she worked tirelessly to make sure we always had what we needed and then some. Tender in nature, like that of a soothing balm, she always knew just what to do. Sometimes, she would fix what were seemingly the most terrible situations with a simple smile. Other times, she'd deliver an encouraging word and then, in some cases, she'd help out financially. But, make no mistake, if she contributed financially, she wanted her money back; every single penny, lol; although, she would just be teasing. No matter what it was, she had a way of making the worst situations seem not so bad. She was an avid reader, music lover and undercover fashion model with an affinity for style. She also loved to cook and sing. Words can't describe Rosetta's undeniable zeal for life. Her cheerful attitude and bright smile served as a beacon of light to all who had the pleasure of engaging with her. If you knew her, you also knew she was an undiscovered comedian; a whole character. If you were in her presence, you were undoubtedly going to laugh. Your reason for laughing wasn't always because of her cracking a joke, doing a funny voice impression or imitation of someone. It's quite possible, you'd laugh if you heard her lay someone out; she was a pistol! Tiny in stature, with the heart of a giant, Rosetta was kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and one of the most giving people that you'd ever meet. She touched everyone she came into contact with; many from other cities and states abroad attest to what she did and said to provide sound daily spiritual guidance. Most importantly, she loved and she loved hard. She was a precious gem, a timeless treasure and will be missed for sure. Rosetta leaves to cherish her memory, her devoted husband, Joe Burch; Children, Andre (Earnestine), Carlton (Scott), Jennifer, and Jenae (Cyni); Grandchildren, Syfee, Carlton Jr (CJ), Karl, Chyna, Andrew, Denise, Dayquan, Jody, Jordan, Jayla, and Jayde; Sisters, Inez, Hazel, Thomasina (Pumpkin), Rochelle (Lady), Linda, Van, Brenda; Brothers, John, Eric (Cheryl), Johnny (Sandra), Leander, Hadley, and Thomas; Brothers in Law, James (Choobie) and Jackie; Sisters in Law, Jahala (Jay) and Jacqueline (Jackie); Aunts; Rosalee, Mary and Ernestine. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
