  4. II read with great sadness of Rosemarie’s passing. We worked together at Country Curtains in the telephone sales department. She was nearing retirement and I was just starting. Rosemarie was a model of good customer service, always helpful to customers and helpful to other sales associates. We also reconnected that our daughters went to school together. I saw her enjoying her retirement when I’d see her out to breakfast with her husband. She was extraordinary. My sincere condolences to the family on the loss of such a wonderful, talented woman.

  8. I just heard of Rosemarie’s passing and am in total shock. This is just way too young to be gone from living life and laughing. Rosemarie was so much fun to be with and talk with and just a lovely person! I just returned from California and am still trying to wrap my brain around this tragic event. My prayers are with her family. She was a blessed person. We who worked with her were all blessed by her spirit and energy and calmness. Never an unkind word, always positive and I will miss her.
