I worked with Rosemary at Northwood School and she was a super friend. She was a beautiful person and had a true heart for children. She will be missed.

I worked with Rosemary at Northwood until her retirement. She was a wonderful person to be around. Her baking skills were very much appreciated. We had fun times together with Rosemary and Nancy Watkins. I learned a lot from watching her with the students. She was always up for playing practical jokes. I also remember her love she had for her dogs. John and family you have my sympathy .

Aunt Rosie, as we all called her, was one of my favorite people, and she was responsible for many wonderful memories. As a kid, back in the 70's, I would visit Aunt Rosie, Uncle John, Jenny and Heidi for a week or so in the summer. She made it her priority to assure that we had a GREAT time. We would go swimming, have sack lunches, go fishing or to a movie with special treats. Sometimes we would have pizza from (Gelardi's?), Blue Moon ice cream from the Sidney Dairy and burgers from The Spot. It was fun, but nothing could top anything from her own kitchen. She was an AMAZING cook!! Snickerdoodles! Cobbler! Tater salad! She would "make a party" for us in the evening after we all had our bathes and were almost ready for bed. It was a little snack, but she always made it special. I remember how she comforted me after I got sick at The Parrish Picnic from a way too spinny ride. YUCK. I used to wish we lived in Sidney, instead of Indianapolis.
I will always appreciate the fact that she inspired my mother's interest in antiques. I regularly went to shows, flea markets and garage sales with my mother, until we lost her this past May, searching for treasures. Many of our finds are still some of my favorite possessions. Those were special and memorable times for both of us.
She had such a sweet soul, with a little bit of mischief mixed in for fun. She was a wonderful sister to my father, a dear friend to my mother and a devoted daughter to my grandma. She adored her family and we adored her. She will always be with us through the wonderful memories she created, laughter she inspired and kindness which she extended to all who knew her.
