I got to know Rose when my family moved into her neighborhood. We became friends and then later she became a real estate client. Rose was always fun to be around. She was kind, compassionate and a loyal friend. She loved her pets like family. RIP Rosemarie. You will be missed.

Rosemarie and i go back many years from the wotm. She always had a smile even if she wasn't feeling it. Would help out anyone she could. She was a good friend. Will be missed by everyone she touched. She loved her daughter. Was very happy how she turned her life around. When she met Harry .she found her sole mate. They were always laughing & acting like school kids. There favorite song to dance to was harvest moon. Rose i am unhappy you are gone. But happy your not in pain anymore. Rest in peace dear friend. Love you much

Rose Marie was a wonderful friend. If you needed her she was there. I have many fond memories of Rose too many to mention. She was a kind and generous person. I met Rose at the Moose Lodge in Port St. Lucie. She was always willing to help the coworkers of the Women Of the Moose. She was very instrumental to each and every coworker their. She gave her time and love to the fraternity in so many ways. Personally I will miss our talks and friendship.

Rose is now at peace and she will be sadly missed by everyone.
