She loved her family and valued family time. This prompted her to start the Jones Family Reunion, which still carries on today. Rosie also loved baking and volunteering. On numerous occasions she had the privilege of making wedding and birthday cakes for numerous people. Because she loved her family so, she made the decision to come out of retirement to make one last wedding cake for her nephew Louis Jones Jr. which she considered to be an honor. Rosie served the community as well as her church. She served as a troop leader of the 4-H club for many years. This included taking the neighborhood kids camping every year, teaching them how to sew, cook and do crafts.

Her wish was to have the kids and grandkids together on vacation. Pat and Pam got together, took her and family to Gaitlinburg, Tennessee. She had the best time with everyone under one roof for the entire weekend. She also enjoyed spending time with her canine companion "BARI" who stood faithfully by her side.
