Rose Ann (Fuchs) (Poor) Deckard

December 14, 1929 — December 14, 2023


Rose Ann was born in Akron to John and Anna Fuchs on December 14, 1929.

She was a 1947 graduate of Springfield High School and was employed at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Springfield local schools, and Babcock & Wilcox. She had many interests in life, but above all, cherished her relationships with family and many friends. Faith and family were at the foundation of her existence.

She is preceded in death by her parents John and Anna Fuchs, husbands John Poor and William Deckard, and great granddaughter Tenley Jayne Riffle.

Rose Ann is survived by her children Vickie Ward, Linda (Tom) Gerber, Karen (Mel) Todaro, Bill (Denise) Deckard, and Susan Deckard. Grandchildren Andrea Riffle, Joshua and Kyle Gerber, Aaron and Ben Bonnell, Michael Deckard, and Christa Jones. Great grandchildren Colin Gerber, Cooper Riffle, Will and Gianna Deckard, Callahan and Deacon Jones, Harper and Blake Bonnell, Henry and William Bonnell, Erika, Jessica and Megan Anderson, and great great granddaughter Kora Brown.

Rose Ann fulfilled her earthly mission and returned Home on her 94th birthday, December 14, 2023.

A shooting star blazed across the night sky, sending her family good tidings that she had reached Eternal Joy. Let us rejoice, knowing she is kicking up her heels, dancing with her loved ones who welcomed her to His Kingdom.
