Rosa graduated from Yadkinville High School in the class of 1943 and attended Pfeiffer University for 2 years and graduated from Guilford College in 1947.
She accepted a job with the Asheboro City School System and began teaching Bible in both elementary and junior high schools throughout the system.
In the 1970's when the Bible Program was removed from public schools, Rosa received a Master's Degree in Library Science from UNG-Greensboro and became a librarian at North Asheboro Middle School.
Rosa met and married Samuel Auman in 1952. Sam worked for Walker Shoe Company as a sales representative. Both Rosa and Sam were active in the First Evangelical & Reformed Church for many years.
Rosa served 45 years as an educator and public servant. Her greatest impact was as a witness for Jesus Christ both in her personal and professional life. In addition to her years of teaching bible in the public schools, Rosa also taught bible at Randolph Community College. She loved teaching Sunday school lessons at Harmony Grove Friends Church in Yadkinville, in the Myrtle Warden Sunday School Class.
