Keturah D. Rockwell
Mrs. Keturah D. Rockwell, age 87, of Naples, FL, formerly of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Tuesday, September 4, 2012, at Bentley Village Care Center in Naples after a ten-year struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Keturah was a longtime member of Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Wilmington, where she was a past president of the Altar Guild. She had been a resident of Naples since 1991.
A gracious and elegant lady with rare beauty and a marvelous sense of humor, Keturah was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her smile has been missed and will continue to be missed by all who have known and loved her. She is finally at peace in God’s hands.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 64 years, Richard H. Rockwell; sons, Richard H. Rockwell II and his wife Christine (VanDorpe) of Wilmington and James L. Rockwell of Naples; and grandchildren, Richard H. Rockwell III, Leslie A. Rockwell, and Whitney N. Rockwell.
The graveside service will be held privately at Lower Brandywine Cemetery in Wilmington.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Keturah may be made to Avow Hospice, 1095 Whippoorwill Lane, Naples, FL 34105 (avowhospice.org / 239-261-4404).
