Rosemary loved her family as a stay-at-home mom and homemaker, enjoyed family gatherings, and spending time with her many friends, especially Diane, who she shared a lifetime of memories with. Rosemary lived her life to the fullest, enjoyingbowling, where she met her husband in 1965, skiing, pinochle, and camping (almost every weekend) in her young adult life. Years later, she enjoyed her family vacations at their vacation home in Mystic Island, NJ. Her love of traveling was evident, taking multiple cruises, visiting her sister out West, and many trips abroad. She loved being near the ocean and the occasional visit to Harrah's.
