As Rosemary’s Schwan lady, I looked forward to visiting with her. More a friend than just a customer. We always enjoyed sharing stories and laughing together. Being there at the same time every two weeks…usually she was having her Wendy’s lunch. Sitting at the kitchen bar always…I didn’t even have to ring the doorbell before she would hollar “Come on in Michelle”. I wanted to send my condolences to her family and friends. She was a great lady that will be greatly missed. Michelle Criss

Dear Tina and family: I am very sorry to learn of the loss of Rosemary. I have good memories of working with her at Pioneer. A no nonsense woman with a great sense of humor. Rosemary was always especially nice to my mom when she saw her in DrugMart. She will be missed by many.

We are sorry to hear of Rosemary’s passing. I worked with her at DrugMart and learned she was not your average lady. She was always full of surprises! She was very special to me & was so loving & helpful to anybody. My hubsand would plant certain vegetables in the grarden & call them “Rosemary’s plants” & we’d take items over to her & she loved it. She loved to cook also. She will be deeply missed by all. We just need to know she is at peace & with her mom & dad.

So sorry to hear of Rosemary’s passing. She was a lovely lady and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
I remember us girls making hats, and we’d take our batons and march like we were the best cheerleaders ever at Richmond Elementary School. those were the days!!
Rest in Peace my friend.

This news saddens me. When Rosemary married Gerald Hines in the 1960s, I was the ring bearer in her wedding (Becky Lillo with the flower girl). I have a beautiful photograph of all of us dancing at the reception and it is framed and hangs in my home. The photograph captures a very happy moment in Rosemary’s life. We’ve stayed in touch through the years and I looked forward to her Christmas cards and holiday notes. To her family and friends, I send my sympathy from Chicago to you in Willard.
