    Was so sorry to hear about Rosemary’s sudden passing. I worked with her at Social Services. Hearing about her passing was a shock. My prayers are with the family at this time as I know so many of you. May God comfort you at this time as only He can do.

    I’m devastated to hear of Rosemary’s passing. May her family and friends find comfort in precious memories to help their hearts mend – as I’m certain that I will. Rosemary was a cherished coworker and friend who always treated me with kindness and generosity. May she rest easy and may God bless her always.

    I have so many good memories of growing up with Rosemary and going home with her to the farm. She put me on my first horse “bareback” and she came back to get me when I fell off. I will never forget her huge hog “Patrick” and I will never forget her Dad getting me out from under the bed with a fly swatter to go on a blind date Rosemary arranged and I chickened out. We had so many fun memories and we got each other through High School. As adults, we ended up camping together and had the opportunity to catch up. I will miss her. Sending my love to Debbie, Donnie, Tom and family. It is very special how close your family has always been.

    I’m crushed and heartsick to hear of Rosemary’s passing. What a tremendous, remarkable spirit she had! Rosemary was one of those rare bright and sparkling people everyone loved. She was a great friend to me and a brilliant co-worker, too. I feel we’ve lost a bright light. She will be sadly missed in the Earthly realm, and Heaven is now even more rich. May God bless and forever comfort all who loved her and mourn her loss.

    I am so very sorry to hear of Rosemary’s passing. I am still trying to comprehend it as she was the last person in the extended family that I thought would go first. For those of you in the Womack/Simmons family who know me I’d like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with you. For those in the Shook family, I grew up in the same neighborhood as Rosemary and her siblings and our families were close. I am so sorry for your loss.
