Obituary Notice

Rosetta Elizabeth Hinton Lind, 33, of Three Rivers, Michigan died on 6 June 2023 due to complications from an 18-year struggle with type 1 diabetes. Rosetta was born on 29 July 1989 in Three Rivers. At the age of five she was adopted into the family of Suzanne and Timothy Lind, also of Three Rivers. As a child she spent five years living with her family in Durban, South Africa. In 2007 Rosetta accompanied her parents to Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, where she attended The American School of Kinshasa, graduating in 2009. After returning to the U.S., she completed a CNA certification and began working as a home health care provider.

Rose brought into the world a great gift for relating to people of all ages and situations. She always sought out open and welcoming engagement with others, and was rarely intimidated by power or position. She had a bright spirit of openness and acceptance that embraced everyone regardless of their abilities, beliefs, race or other distinctives. She carried that spirit with her throughout her diverse educational experiences, communities, and cultural encounters, and to the hearts of her family and friends. She will be forever remembered and deeply missed by her many friends here and around the world, and by her parents, sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, aunts, and uncles from both her adoptive and her birth families.
