Rosemary (Tessie/Rosie) was a graduate of the first class of Bishop Carroll High School Ebensburg in 1964. She retired from Sheetz in 2010 after working there for 10 years. She loved volunteering and being a part of the special events held at her work. She was honored to be selected to represent Sheetz and travel to Disney for a Make A Wish Foundation event. Prior to Sheetz, she worked at Mid State Bank in the Trust Department for 23 years.
Rosemary's life was all about her faith and family. She was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Newry, PA. She had a strong devotion to her faith and a special connection to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. She loved the memories she made participating in the Parish fish frys and festivals.
In recent years, her favorite times were spent with family during holidays but especially at our Annual 4th of July Celebration at camp in Potter County. Every year, once a year, the entire family would get together for a week and go camping. She had rules, food and fun and was in charge of making sure everyone had their favorite food and drink. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband to the New England States and fishing trips to Canada. Since retirement, her favorite pastime was to travel to all her grandchildren’s events. Whether it was a music recital, a sporting event, church function or school event, she was always there. She also enjoyed cooking for the entire family and anyone who was ever in need could always count on a meal from her. It's Mom's naptime in heaven! No calls! No texts!
Visitation will be on Thursday March 24, 2022 at the Leslie-Miller Funeral Home, Claysburg from 5pm-8pm. As a special request from Rosie, please wear bright and fun colors, no black! A Mass will be held at St. Patrick's in Newry on Friday March 25, 2022 at 11:00am with a Luncheon to follow.
