Rosemary was:

So Loving

Very Free Spirited

Lived life to its fullest


Rosemary loved her family and her animals. She was a free and loving spirit with a thirst for life. She had a lot of trials and tribulations throughout her life. At the point in her life when she began to overcome a lot of the strife; she began to become ill. She struggled to stay healthy for herself, family and friends. She had so many people who loved her and would come from time to time to help out with her health needs & keep her spirits high. Even though her health was on a slow decline for the last four years, she kept her spirits high. She loved being around her family and friends, it's what kept her going. On December 30th 2011, she finally succumbed to her illness's & the daily pain she lived in. She will be forever missed and always remembered.

"Rosemary was very dear to our hearts. She lived across the street from us when we moved to Tacoma and took us in as her family. Gabby and Branden thought of Rosemary and Clarence as their second grandparnets and STILL do. You guys will always be like family to us and we loved her very much. She went out of her way to let me use her car, help out with the kids, when i needed to talk."
