She was born August 1, 1907 in Piqua, Ohio the daughter of John and Alice M. (Lamourex) Dilworth. She married Frank F. Amann on June 3, 1937 and he died in 1984. Surviving are one sister, Julia Dilworth of Piqua, Ohio; two sister-in-laws, Flora Allen of Troy, Ohio and Margaret Dilworth of Moraine, Ohio and numerous nieces and nephews. Two sisters are deceased, Virginia and Alice Dilworth and two brothers are deceased, Joseph and John Dilworth. She was baptized and confirmed in the St. Mary Church and as an adult was a member of the church choir. She attended St. Mary School and graduated in 1925. Her first job was a Phillippi's store on Main St. in Piqua which was a harness and camera store. Next she held a bookkeeping position at Wurlizer Music Store. Then she was a secretary and bookkeeper at a Ford Agency until her marriage. She was married to Frank F. Amann, a prominent banker in Sidney and they purchased a home on Johnston Drive where they lived until 1944 when they bought the lovely, historical farm on Brooklyn Ave. Rosemary was involved in many organizations in Sidney; active at Holy Angels Catholic Church where she was a member and the Ladies Altar Society at the church; on the board of a Dental Clinic, a member of the Moose Lodge, a Newman Club member, Book and Travel Club member where she often gave book reviews at the meetings. She was happy to volunteer at Wilson Memorial Hospital and gave many hours in various capacities. She continued to keep her membership in the Auxiliary. She belonged to several bridge clubs which she enjoyed very much. During the 46 years they lived at the place they called "River Bend" famr, there were many events; picnics, cook-outs, family reunions and birthday celebrations. Their many friends were welcome to come and ride the horses and they delighted to have little children come to ride Beauty, the pony. There was a parakeet whom Rosemary taught to say "my name is Andy Amann", Vicky the dog, and a pet lamb that Rosemary nurtured because the mother abandoned it. She brought it in the kitchen for warmth and fed it with a bottle. You might say Rosemary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow and everywhere that Rosemary went, the lamb was sure to go because that is what happened. She kept busy on the property at Brooklyn Ave. tending to the fruit trees, canning, mowing grass and caring for the horses. The farm was sold in 1980 to Eric and Gay Smith whoo still reside there. Rosemary and her husband traveled in the States and abroad. They loved going to Lexington, Kentucky and spent time in Florida and their favorite overseas trip was to Austria and Switzerland. Rosemary took several trips with the Senior Citizens including one to Alaska. She also took trips to River Downs for the horse races. Rosemary enjoyed life, music, singing, dancing, animals and most of all people, she loved people.
