Glencoe’s Rozlyn Greene, a fourth-grader who has garnered the support of the entire community in recent weeks as she fought a rare form of childhood cancer, passed away on Thursday.

“My baby girl won her fight and received the ultimate reward ... God wins!” her father, Ben Greene, wrote on social media Thursday night.

At Glencoe Elementary School, where Greene was a fourth-grader, the marquee displayed a message of support for the family. Other schools and businesses in Glencoe also displayed messages of love. Counselors and a service therapy dog were onsite at the school and at Glencoe Middle School for students and faculty.

Rozlyn began her fight with acute myeloid leukemia in December 2018 and underwent numerous rounds of treatment for the disease.

On Aug. 9, as Rozlyn came home from the hospital in Birmingham, local schools and community members gathered together to welcome her back. More than a dozen law enforcement members met the family at the county line and escorted them from the interstate to their home in Glencoe.

Along the way, they drove past Glencoe Elementary School, where Rozlyn was greeted by her classmates as they waved and held up signs for her.

That week, students at other schools in the area wore orange colors to show their support for Rozlyn and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Later in the month, police returned to escort Rozlyn to North Glencoe Baptist Church, where she arrived in a limousine and was surprised with a trip to Disney World by Magic Moments, an organization that helps children and their families in Alabama enjoy special trips or experiences while they deal with serious illnesses.

Earlier this week, a social media post sharing Rozlyn’s health was met with thousands of comments and reactions.

Following the news of her passing, social media once again was flooded with messages of support and mourning. On the school’s Facebook page, a request was made for community members to keep Rozlyn and her family in their thoughts and prayers.

Visitation for Rozlyn will be Sunday, Sept. 15 from 2 to 5 p.m. at North Glencoe Baptist Church. Funeral services will be at 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16 at the church.
