Rosemary was a loving person. She was my God mother. I will never forget the present that she gave me when I got married it was a sewing machine and I used it a lot. God bless your family during this time.

My deepest condolences for the family and who've been blessed to meet this great person. I knew from the first time I met her she was funny outgoing and simply great! Although it was a few brief times over the years she always left me smiling and giggling. The family/friends are truly at loss but please just know from my view she was really an awesome lady.

Sorry to hear about your loss I wish I could come to see you all I always remember Rosemary with her smile she always said to me you're so funny she was a kindhearted person  May God bless her and your family

So sorry to read of your Mom's death.  She was a wonderful cousin, one of the hardest working people I have ever known.  She loved her kids with all her heart and soul.  Your grandmother Mary Adam Pfeifer and my Mom Katherine Adam Lingohr are sisters.  I remember Rosemary's wedding, I was only 8 years old, and I thought Rosemary was the most beautiful woman in the world.  I visited her last summer at the Haaland Home in July, and I commented on her wedding picture.  She said the dress was 33 dollars and I think her sister had worn it.  That was your Mom.  No waste.  We had a nice visit.  My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
