Obituary For Carla Jean Rosenstock-Workman

Carla Jean Rosenstock-Workman, our beloved wife, mother and nana lost her battle with pancreatic cancer on October 16, 2021.

She did not know a stranger, nor did she allow any child to be motherless or without a grandmother. To all she was known as “Mom and Nana”. All those who have been blessed to have her in their lives, know that the world was so much warmer when she was with you.

She will be truly missed, but her HUGE heart will live on through her family and friends whom she held so dear and loved her beyond measure.

With a loving heart she leaves her legacy to be carried on by her husband Robert K. Workman of Hendersonville, NC; her children, Joy Keys of Brooksville, FL, Carol Cahill of Hudson, FL, Carla Rosenstock and Lisa Harper both of Hendersonville, NC Kimberly Hollister of Alexander, NC, Lori Sandavol of El Reno, OK, Jennifer Patterson of Yukon, OK and Robert Workman, Jr. of El Reno, OK.
She now watches over her grandchildren, which are her greatest treasures; Joshua Britto, Michael and Jeremiah Cahill, Gavin, Wyatt, Gabriel, Madelynn and Kaila Harper, Katie Clark, Sammy Hollister, MaryAnn DeWald, Kalebh Sandoval, Michelala Gaines, Ryan McCannon, Kayla, Amanda and Rachel Keys; 16 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.

A celebration of life will be arranged at a later date.

In lieu of flowers we ask that you send a donation of “most needed items” to your local hospice.
