I am so sorry to hear of Rosemary's passing. She was such a fabulous teacher and I was fortunate that 3 of my kids had her for 4th grade. She was great at identifying the difference in my children and always went the extra mile for them. Of course she will always be remembered by her huge collection of Garfields!

Classroom Mom Redmond , Washington

When I was a young Kindergarten teacher, Susan was in my class (we share the same first name, so became close day one). I was fortunate to have Rosemary as one of my “classroom moms”. She was an inspiration and was very helpful to me as I was navigating the teaching waters, it was my first year. Susan was a delightful child and an honor to be around. That was in 1987 and although we didn’t see each other we kept in touch with Christmas cards. I just received word of her passing from Alan, thank you for writing me back. Rosemary was such a beautiful spirit and will truly remain a bright lite in my heart. My thoughts are with you all. Hugs💕
