Rosemary departed this life January 20, 2020, in her Colorado Springs home at the age of 58, surrounded by her loving family. Rosemary spent her life giving the best of herself to anyone who crossed her path. Her passion was teaching, with her main focus dedicated to Special Education, but she gave many other lessons to everyone she loved everyday. Her family, and especially her grandchildren, were the light in her heart.

She leaves behind 5 nieces and nephews; 9 great nieces and nephews; aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends, she considered family. She is preceded in death by her father, Herman and sister, Deborah.

Rosemary was the most loving person I know. She was so smart and had the biggest heart. She loved helping everyone that crossed her path. She was a wonderful big sister, she always took care of me and wanted me involved in her life. Words can't express how much I'll miss her.

Steve and Family, We didn't really know you except as a child, when Johnny and Gloria visited uncle Carey and Aunt Elois and Maxine. So Sorry to hear about your loss. We spoke of trying to meet a few years back, but it never seemed to work out. Rose sounds like a wonderful lady and I am sure the loss will be difficult. You will be in our prayers.

We may not have always seen eye to eye, but I still loved you as a sister in law. I will miss you and I will try to stay in touch with Steve, despite the fact that I'm divorcing his brother. Steve will still be family to me. He has a lot of family around that love him. Rest easy Rose, until we meet again.

Aunt Rose was an amazing person who cared deeply about the people in her life. She would invite neighbors and friends to holiday dinners so they weren't alone. She hosted multiple exchange students from other countries and treated them as her own kids. She helped my kids with reading and greatly impacted their love for learning.

She was an amazing woman with an enormous heart and I love her for that. Thank you Aunt Rose for all that you gave, you will be missed.
