Rosa A. Philpot was born to the late Lawson and Dollie Nickens on December 22, 1934 in Richmond County, Virginia. She was the last of ten children to the Nickens family. All have predeceased her. She is a graduate of Richmond County High School in Warsaw, Virginia. She moved to Newark, New Jersey soon after graduating from high school.

She was baptized into Christ at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Downing, Virginia. Later on in life she joined St. John’s Community Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey.

She was united in marriage to the late Fred Philpot Sr. for fifteen years. To this union were born two children: Fred Philpot Jr. and Janice Philpot.

She was a beloved mother of two children, a grandmother of five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Rosa enjoyed going to church to praise the Lord, cooking, baking, listening to gospel music, and taking care of her grandchildren, which was her pride and joy. Rosa also loved getting together with family and friends.
