  1. Rosemary was very special to me. I’ve known her nearly my whole life, since I was about five years old. She always helped with providing food and clothing to my Mom, my brother and me as I grew up. She got me my first job at Youngster, and it was such a joy to work with her. I loved her very much, and am so blessed to have had her in my life. I am going to truly miss her, but I am so happy she is now with our Lord resting in His loving arms.

  2. Rosemary was a dear friend of mind. she was very special to me, a woman of God, someone I could look up to as the years when I was a single mother. She and I did a lot together over the years. I know she is in the Lord arms now and seeing a lot of her love ones that went before her time. I thank the Lord for all the years we were together.

  3. I just found out today, September when I was Bridges that my dear friend
    whom I have known for over 25 years went to be with our Lord.

    She will be greatly missed by anyone that knew her. She was a dear sweet
    Christian woman who loved the Lord, and her family and friends.

  4. Rosemary was a true friend, which has been over 40 years. I met her at church and I worked with her at Youngsters and spent many holidays together with her and her family. Rosemary was there for anyone in need. Rosemary will be truly missed. We had some wonderful times and many laughs together. I will see her again one day. She was dearly loved, Dolores Joyner and Family
