Roma Loving Wife & Mother


Roma Mary Joyce Renick Prouty, of Elkton MD, sadly passed away peacefully and with family by her bedside, on February 1 2017. She was born March 6 1946 in Hubli India to the late Leonard John Renick and Dora (Calasso) Renick.

Roma had lived a wonderful life which had stretched across three different continents. Firstly born in India, then raising a family in the United Kingdom, remarrying in Germany and finally settling in the USA. Along her journeys she learned many languages including French, Spanish and German. Roma had a lifelong career in Finance as an Accountant, Advisor and Booking Keeping and was employed at financial and shipping institutions in the United Kingdom and at American Army Bases, both in Germany and USA. She was passionate about cooking; a self-taught chef in her own right, she was gifted with making dishes taste delicious. Nothing pleased her more than to cook for the family she loved. Anglo Indian cuisine was her forte, along with her famous pickle canning, using vegetables lovingly cultivated in her own garden and sending them to her family all over the world. Her garden was her sanctuary, always starting from scratch she grew it into the beautiful place where she and Joel spent many joyful hours together, tending to her flowers and vegetables.

Roma is survived by her husband Joel J Prouty. Her son Peter Charles Philip Cowie and wife Natalie of Essex UK. Her Daughter Tina Mary Leah Newnes and husband Craig of Essex UK. Her daughter Maria Ann Cowie and boyfriend Whitney Dahlin of Corona Del Mar CA. She is also survived by her granddaughter Isla Rose Cowie.
