MASSENA – Rose M. Lobdell, 52, of Talcott Street, unexpectedly passed away Thursday evening, March 19, 2020 at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse.

Rose was born April 24, 1967 in Massena, the daughter of the late Milford and Gloria (Fetterly) Phelix and was a 1986 graduate of Massena High School.

Rose dedicated her life to the health, welfare, and education of children, not only her own but to many students at Massena Central School, where she was a teacher’s aide. She cherished the time she was able to be with her grandchildren, garage-saling and going to bingo with her best friend, Wanda DeRushia, and had a great love for reading, sewing, and horses.

Rose is survived by her son, Patrick Smith, Jr. and his companion, Jackie Shampine of Norfolk; her beloved grandchildren, Devan, Aleyah, Jocelyn, and Aubrianna; her sisters, Kathy Fetterly of Syracuse, Kelly Phelix of Massena; Tina Phelix of Massena; her brothers, Kevin and Nancy Fetterly of Massena; Gary and Barbara Fetterly of North Lawrence, Milford Jr. and Fran Phelix of Bombay; Ricky Phelix and Betty Burry of Massena; and Justin Phelix of Massena; her sister-in-law, Sharon Lobdell and Frank Shampine of Massena; her companion, Roger Gonyou, Jr.; her best friend, Wanda DeRushia; and many nieces and nephews.

Due to the current restrictions of the COVID-19, there will be no services at this time. A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer when the restrictions have been lifted.

The family is establishing Rose Lobdell Memorial Fund to continue her legacy of helping children in any way possible, those wishing may consider donations in her memory to this fund.

I worked with Rose for years, she was an aide in my classroom. I will never forget her kind heart and sunny disposition. She was truly a blessing to me, the students, and all her coworkers. Rest In Peace, Rosetta, you deserve all heaven has for you.

Rose's Family,

I had the double pleasure of not only have Rose as a student but also a coworker at Massena Central School. It was such an honor to have her in my classroom in both capacities. She displayed such a outstanding work ethic and deep compassion for her students while a teacher aide. Her love for children and education ran deep.

It is with sadness that I learn of her illness and passing. To all of you keep a smile in your heart and keep your memories safe.

Patrick and family,
I’m so sad over the death of your mom.
What a loving, caring lady your mom was! Always a smile and a hug when I would see her.
Please hold close all your memories. I was always happy that she had Gail and Bob in her life!!! The daughter they never had.
