Jun 04, 1921---Aug 12, 2022
Rosemary Snow Kline (101) passed away peacefully at home on August 12, 2022.
 
Rosemary is survived by her children, Jim (Annie) Kline of Reno, Nevada; Carl (B) Kline of Overland Park, Kansas; Bridget (Ron) Coluccio of Springfield, Missouri; Richard Kline of Marietta, Georgia; daughter-in-law Carnie Kline, nieces Judy Hill and Susan Snow Bogart, five grandchildren, and five great grandchildren, along with many, many dear friends.
 
She is preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Carl (Buck) Kline: son Robert (Bobby) Kline; daughter-in-law Cathy Kline; and son-in-law, Jay Breitman.
 
Rosemary was born in Kansas City, Kansas and graduated from St. Mary’s Academy in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1939. During WWII, Rosemary worked at the B-25 Bomber Plant - and although her children bragged to everyone that she was the inspiration for “Rosie the Riveter”, she never admitted it.
 
Rosemary and Buck began their romance while both were working at Snow’s Meats. They were married in 1948 at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and raised their 5 children in that parish.
 
Rosemary enjoyed creating her stained glass windows and lamps and woodworking. If there was anything that ever needed to be fixed around the house, she would be right there with her tools to fix it. Rosemary was an avid golfer and her chipping and putting were second to none.
 
She was the best mom ever and even though her kids were already planning her 102nd birthday she decided she wanted no part of that.
 
She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
 
No funeral or memorial service is immediately planned. The family will, of course, notify loved ones when a service is scheduled.

Jim, Carl, Bridget, and Richard, You have my sincere condolences. She is remembered fondly by my family. My mother Agnes Knipper enjoyed a life long friendship with your mother. I don’t remember if they met working together at North American during WWII or if they were friends earlier. They had lost touch for awhile but then in 2020 my mom called her and they had some phone calls to catch up that year. You are fortunate to have her so long. Joan Knipper Carter

Jimmy, Bridget, Carl and Richard, I have so many fond memories and fun times spent with your mom. We always talked about them whenever I conversed with her on the phone. We always reminisced about our fun times on the golf course and our big bets of five and dimes. I will miss those phone chats. She was truly a wonderful longtime friend. You're all in my thoughts and prayers. Pat Sambol
