BIOGRAPHY OF JOHN M. ROSEBERRY
Rev. John M. Roseberry graduated from Colonel Crawford High School, Galion, Ohio, and Mount Union College, Alliance, Ohio from which he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in religion and philosophy. He continued his education at Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, D.C., graduating with a Master of Divinity degree. While there he specialized in Urban Ministry. He began his ministry as a student intern while still at Mount Union College, and served as a student co-pastor in
the Baltimore Conference with his wife Rev. Barbara Y. Roseberry.

After seminary he served these appointments in the East Ohio Conference: North Mentor, Centenary; and Euclid, Masters until the time of his death. To remember John is to recall a man who lived out what he believed. His life was the very reflection of the God he loved. John stood firm in his commitment to his family, to social concerns, on matters relating to human needs, and on issues dealing with racism. In these areas John put his energies and love where they could make a difference: serving on the ministerial support team for Hospice of Lake County, actively supporting Forbes House, a shelter for battered women and children, as part of their community education team, and as one of three local ministers who volunteered for Career Beginnings, a group of concerned citizens that encouraged college-bound minority students.

At his death he was chairperson of the Conference Commission on Religion and Race, and chairperson of the Conference Task Force on Racism. As a result of these positions, he also received additional training at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Creative Non-Violence in Atlanta, Ga. John died at the age of 35 from complications of pneumonia. Monies received in his memory were donated to the East Ohio Foundation to help provide college scholarships for ethnic minority students. He is survived by his wife, a ministerial member of the East Ohio Conference, and his son Jeremy C. Roseberry.
He was preceded in death by his older son, Joshua M. Roseberry.
