Roselyn's mother Ailene passed
on to her reward on February 20, 2002. Ailene moved to Flint, Michigan
with her family when she was three. As an adult, she became a groundbreaking
leader in Flint and the surrounding community, working for civil
rights and social justice as well as running her own business, long
before women were commonly accepted in such roles.
