On April 25, 2022, Rochelle received her heavenly escort into the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Born Marilyn Rochelle Williams on September 17, 1937 to the late Jeff and Verlee Williams, she was wife to her childhood sweetheart, Richard “Pedie” Berry who preceded her in death.
A member of the first graduating class of Williams High School, Rochelle was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a friend to many and an intercessor for all. Her knowledge of the Word of God and willingness to share God’s truth will be impossible to replace.

Grandchildren, Jami (John) Doby, Chip (Kristy) Berry, Rob Grooms, Christian (Grey) Shoffner, Rebecca (Patrick) Gray, Nick (Kayla) Berry and Hannah Berry.
