Rosemary Sybil Adams Chiasson

March 16, 1938March 22, 2020

Rosemary Sybil Adams Chiasson, a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, Nana, great-grandmother, Godmother, sister, and friend passed away surrounded by her family on Sunday, March 22, 2020 at the ripe “young” age of 82. She was born on March 16, 1938 in New Orleans, LA. She grew up in Kenner, LA which is where she met her high school sweetheart, Harold - they were married for over 60 years. She was his most cherished wife. They were lifelong residents of Destrehan, LA and parishioners of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in which they faithfully attended 8:30 mass for many years. After being a homemaker raising their 6 children, she had several different occupations from cashier to secretary as well as SGS for several years. However, she truly cherished being “Nana” to many children that she was blessed to have cared for in her home as they all became her “bonus” grandchildren. To say that Rosemary was a radiant, strong-willed woman of strength and courage wouldn’t do her justice. She had a heart of gold and would always try to help others in many ways. Rosemary was truly one of a kind. She was always the life of the party whether it was a wedding reception, July 4th barbecue, family gatherings, crawfish boil or just hanging out with her girlfriends. Her best friends that she met during her high school years and have remained that way until this day are Annette “Netsy” Gauthreaux and Jeanette Centanni. They raised their children together and helped each other when needed. They would load all the children into the station wagon and head to Hoppers Drive Inn or Pontchartrain Beach. They were always there for each other in good times and all of life’s trials and tribulations. Their friendship will always have a very special place with all of our families. The latest addition to the girl gang was her next-door neighbor and garden buddy, Kristie Mire, in which they spent many afternoons enjoying each other’s company while working in their gardens together. She was preceded in death by her husband - Harold L Chiasson, Jr., her father, Willie C. Adams and her mother Camille Katherine Frisella Treadway. Survived by their beloved 6 children Harold III, Michael (Karen), Todd, Dwayne (DeAnna), Sybil (Edward Schneider), and Chad (Jon); 11 grandchildren Harold IV (Stacy), Amanda, Sarah (Logan Lydell), Alyssa Schneider, Shane (Connie), Todd Jr., Breann (Chandler Spencer), Shelby Schneider (Lexy Moore), Kristen, Savannah, and Evan; 5 great-grandchildren Hailey, Hannah, Sophia, Caleb Lydell, Lennon Schneider-Moore, and number 6 on the way! She is also survived by her 3 sisters Barbara A. Tamburello (Johnny), Patricia A. Brown, and Carolyn A. Woesner (Bill) with whom she had an unbreakable bond with being the “oldest” sister. As well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and godchildren. We would also like to thank Notre Dame Hospice for their care and kindness in guiding us through these last 4 weeks of her life. The caretakers that we couldn’t have done without – Sonya, Brenda, Edith and Danielle – we will always be grateful for your loving care that was shown to our Mother and family through this difficult time. The family of Rosemary will be having a funeral service at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church on Thursday, March 26, 2020. Due to our current extenuating circumstances, we ask that those who wish to express condolences do so at www.HCAlexander.com in lieu of your presence at the service. The family thanks you kindly for your understanding and compassion.

It’s been many years since you watched me as a little girl, but to this day I remember everything. I also remember coming to visit you, and you would say come sit on my lap my baby. I wish I would have came to see you more before I moved away. I have always thought about you and missed you.
My thoughts, love and prayers are with her children, family and loved ones.
To my Beautiful Loving Nana Rose, May you Rest In Peace. This now (32 year old woman) will ALWAYS and FOREVER love you!!!
