"Rosemary was my 1st cousin twice removed. I never knew Rosemary personally.  My great grandmother Katherine Emilie Whiting was an older sister to Rosemary's father Justin Rice Whiting.  This website has provided me with an insight of Rosemary that I never knew before. She was a remarkable & lovely lady. I only  wish I had known Rosemary. I can see how she touched so many people."

"Rosemary was a gracious and kind person. She always made you feel special, especially when you would sit nearby her in the "compliment chair"! She always had kind words to say, and was always pleasant even when she wasn't feeling well. She will be missed......"

"Rosemary taught me a lot.  How to be gracious, patient, to smile even and especially after adversity.  Rosemary enjoyed the simple things... a quiet ride in the country...a brunch at Dorn's...a glass of wine...a pleasant smile and reaching out to greet people.  I am grateful to have had the privilege of spending time with Rosemary.  Just a sweet sweet person...forever missed."

"My sister, Dianne, and I have known Rosemary for over 60 years.  She came to Alameda to meet us kids after she and our Uncle Burt married in 1951.  She was a "real" aunt to us, full of loving advice and interested in our activities.  After many rewarding visits, we lost contact with her in recent years, but it is heartwarming to know that she was loved and well cared-for.  Thank you all."

"Goodbye, Rosemary.  You were one of the most gracious persons I have ever known.  No matter how you felt, you always had a smile and kind word for everyone.  I'll miss that and your announcing my comings and goings (there's someone coming up the stairs").  It has been a pleasure knowing you for the past 25 years.  You are truly "not in any pain" now.  Rest in peace."

"Cheers! Rosemary.  "Oh dear," to many memories and lessons learned.  It was absolute pleasure to care give for such a warm hearted gracious being.  It made taking care of you so easy.  You taught me so much by just looking at those warm brown eyes with flints of ember.  Thanks for showing me how to do your best and letting go of the rest.  You helped me become a better person."

"I will miss Rosemary's warm smile and compliments, her passion for people and her excitement about all things chocolate!  She was always appreciative of my cooking and any small gift I would bring her (chocolate mousse from Robin's, roses from the Farmer's Market), as well as any help I could provide.  Even when dizzy or otherwise not feeling well, she was polite and cared about others."
