Rosalie Brock

Rosalie Brock departed this life on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at Pawnee, Oklahoma, at the young age of 65 years. She was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on January 17, 1957, and adopted by Dr. James and Nancy DeVore of Oklahoma City in 1960. She graduated from Edmond Memorial High School, Edmond, Oklahoma, in 1976. She began her career as an Office Clerical Assistant for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company on April 2, 1979, and continued through April, 1996. Rosalie met “Papa Lou” Brock on a blind date, set up by their respective offices at Bell Telephone, and only six weeks later, he asked for her hand in marriage. They married at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Oklahoma City, on November 23, 1979, and established their home in Oklahoma City and then moved to Pawnee, Oklahoma in June of 2000. Both Rosalie and Lou enjoyed traveling to several places during their 43-year marriage: Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Orlando, FL, and won the first Oklahoma City Home and Garden major contest at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds, in 1983, which was a seven days and six nights vacation in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. They were able to take the trip on their fourth wedding anniversary. She loved coming to the Big Bend community of Ralston to visit her mother-in-law, Mildred (“Millie”) Brock and her pup, Cleo. She was a lover of classical music and was lovingly known as a “C-SPAN junkie” and was quoted as saying that she could keep up with politics much better than those who were in office. Rosalie is survived by her husband, Lou, of the home, two pups, Sho’-gi and Tinker, her brothers, Robert DeVore (Shelley) and Jim DeVore, both of Albuquerque, New Mexico, a niece, Esther Rachel DeVore (Leo) and grandnephew, Ari of Aurora, Colorado, several cousins and many friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Nancy DeVore, and father, James K. DeVore, M.D., and her mother-in-law, Mildred Homan Brock.
