Roseann Mechele (Fish) Long, age 54, of the Painttown community in Cherokee passed away on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

Rose was a strong, compassionate, independent, loyal, brave and very hardworking woman. She was a great example of what a wife, sister, mother, and granny should be. She enjoyed her time, her special friends, and her students from the time she worked at Smoky Mountain Elementary school. She also worked at the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino where she made great friends as well. If she wasn’t working you could find her riding in the mountains, cruising on the lake, making crafts, having a house full of family, and listening to music. She was very caring and her family always came first. Rose obtained a Bachelors in Business from Montreat College and later in life retired from Smoky Mountain Elementary School and Harrah’s Cherokee Casino.

Rose is survived by her husband Leonard Long, her father Curtis Ray Fish and her mother Annette Faye Fish, her children Miranda Long Stamper, Michelle Lynn Long and Madison Hye Long of Cherokee. She is survived by 4 grandchildren; Matix Danger Stamper, Joscelyn Kierce Stamper, Cambry Amarra Stamper, Joe Keet Long; and her sister Beatrice May Locust and her husband Luke Locust, as well as her sister in laws, Sammi Saunooke and husband Brian Saunooke, and Josie Long. Also surviving are her nieces and nephews; Jim-bob, Joe-Don, Tre, Crystle, Luke, George, Utsela; and many great nieces and nephews.

Rose was preceeded in death by her brothers, Joe Curtis Fish and Barry Curtis Fish, as well as her niece, Justice Rain Bark.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Bethabara Baptist Church. A service will follow directly after starting at 6:00 pm.
