Rosemary, a lifelong Philadelphia, PA resident, lived life on her own terms. Her extraordinary sense of humor was an integral part of her life and amplified her compassionate personality. She overcame many obstacles to become the best daughter, sister, mother and aunt she could be. She was very proud of the 27 years she enjoyed working at Hahnemann Hospital as a medical transcriptionist, whichmade her an expert at navigatingthe wheels of Septa. Her role as mother to Trevor was still her most cherished work and was held in her highest regard. Cooking wasanotherone of her passions, along with music, movies and childhood memories which she shared repeatedly with friends and family. Her love of music was seen in her many years as a choir member which resulted in the recording of a choir recordreleased for sale in the early 80's.
Over time she developed a creative knack for solvingSudokupuzzles and a puzzle book could alwaysbe found in every room of her home. As an animal lover, she cared for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, tropicalConurebirds, and even a white rat. She never reached thelifelonggoal of owning a horse, but none the less, she never gave up hope. She is currently survived by her long time cat, JEDI, who misses her already.
