Emily Lauren Rose, 17, of Savannah Hills Drive, Matthews, passed away on December 20, 2008, after a long, courageous, inspiring battle with leukemia. She was surrounded by her closest family and friends during her last days.
Emily was a senior at Butler High School, cheerleader, member of the National Honor Society and had just learned that she had gained early acceptance to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Emily's grace and dignity during her fight against her disease touched the hearts of literally hundreds and hundreds of her family and friends. Her story was told to thousands by features on her by Molly Grantham on WBTV.
Emily served at Camp Lurecrest, a non-denominational Christian Camp at Lake Lure this past summer. She had attended the camp every year since she was six years old, and was so excited to finally be old enough to be a counselor. She also worked at Camp Care, a one week camp for cancer kids and their siblings at Lake Lure, the week before she came home sick and was diagnosed with leukemia.
Emily is survived by her father, Steve Rose, of Concord; mother and stepfather, Amy and Mark McKelvey; brother, Brendan Rose; stepbrothers Caleb and Zach McKelvey; grandmother, Jo Henderson, all of Matthews; grandmother Annemarie Kenny of Harrisburg; grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Jack Rose of Charlotte; and many aunts, uncles and cousins in the Charlotte area, all of whom loved her dearly. She will be missed by thousands more who have been touched by her strength, grace and dignity during her valiant struggle.
The family will receive friends 4:00-6:00 PM Tuesday at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, South Boulevard in Charlotte, with a memorial service to follow at 6:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Camp Lurecrest Ministries, Inc., 10800 Sikes Place, Suite 300, Charlotte, North Carolina 28277.
