Roselyn A. Shreve, 68, of Fairfield, died Wednesday morning, Feb. 18, 2021, at the Gettysburg Hospital.

Born April 16, 1952, in Gettysburg, she was the daughter of the late Nelson and Anna (Warren) Fickes.

Roselyn retired from Knouse Foods in 2018 after 26 years of service. In her free time she enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and her biggest joy was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her five sons, Timothy Sites, Jonathan Sites, Troy Sites, Chad Sites, and Nathan Shreve; 10 grandchildren, Grace, Haley, Madie, Josh, Cameron, Ashtyn, Autumn, Emily, Travis, and Trevor; one great-grandchild, Easton; one sister, Vonnie Monterroso and her husband Oscar; and four brothers, Denny Fickes and his wife Geneva, Mike Fickes, Jeff Fickes, and Gene Fickes. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Kerm Fickes and Chester Fickes.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2021, at the St. Mary’s Cemetery, Fairfield, with Rev. Mickey Barlow officiating. The family is planning a celebration of Roselyn’s life at a picnic to be scheduled at a later time in the spring or summer.
