To Doug, Scott and Colin. I was so sad to hear that Rosemary had passed away. Rosemary was a good friend to me while we lived in Sarnia. She was a great support to us while she attended the Salvation Army in Sarnia when we were the pastors there. I remember many long conversations, lovely drives to enjoy a nice lunch somewhere. Bible studies in your home, serving together in the church. I am also so greatful for the interest she took in our daughter and the kindness she showed. She will be greatly missed by so many. Praying for comfort in the days ahead for Rosemary's family and friends

Colin & Scott, I am sorry for the loss of your mom. She tolerated all of our shenanigans and late nights growing up. Which was surprising since we were always up to something. I have nothing but fond memories of her and always will. Jon Burkett

To all of Rosemary's family, I first met Rosemary in Sept 1989 when we both took a physical assessment course for nurses at Lambton College. We had many challenges and fun in that class and she went on to work as a nurse at Rosewood and me at VON. We kept in touch over the years and I always found her to be a sweet, fun, kind and gracious soul. I just saw Rosemary's obituary today and was greatly saddened that she has passed away. Please know I will remember her very fondly for all the days of my life. Please accept my most sincere sympathies for the loss of your beloved Rosemary. she was a true lady. Very Sincerely, Teresa Anderson

I will miss Rosemary's inquisitive ways.... always ready to learn something new. I'll miss her hug when returning to the Sacred Circle Dance. If I'd forgotten a step I knew I could look to Rosemary. The Circle will be missing a vital link. Our music will bring back memories of Rosemary. I'll miss getting slips of paper with Rosemary's recommended books to read and authors to try.
