  1. I am so sorry for the loss of Rosemary. She was a very special and dear friend, to my Mom Dorothy Moss. They and their husbands worked as beekeepers together many years. My Mom, was really hurt to hear of her dear friends passing. She had so many fun times, with Rosemary and Dale, fishing, visiting, etc… She says Rosemary could lift anyone spirits!!! She could be so funny, and truly a good and trusted friend , She was a very special lady, and loved by so very many. Our Sympathy and prayers to her family. Brenda(Moss)Parks

  2. Our prayers go out to all of Rosemary’s husband and children my God fill your hearts with peace heaven has gained an angel, thanks Rosemary for all your help and kindness we will always remember you.

  3. I wish I got to know her better. But my mom (Debbie) always tells me stories about when she was younger and used to go over to Aunt Rosemarys house and how much fun she had picking the fruit, playing with all the animals. And how Uncle Dale would pull everybody around in a big trailer that was hooked to a tractor.
    Rest In Peace Aunt Rosemary!
