Bishop Noll Institute mourns the loss of a cherished alumna and friend. Rosemary was a graduate in the Class of 1942, and taught English at Bishop Noll from 1946-1949. She remained actively involved in the success of Bishop Noll for many years. She will be missed.

May the angels lead her into paradise.
