So sorry to hear of the death of Rosie. Had seen her recently at Tops Market and I thought she looked the best she had in a long time.. We had a nice visit about the quilt she was working on. Her nieces and nephews meant a lot to her. RIP Rosie

Rosemary was a classmate of mine. She truly loved her years at Camden High. Since graduating in 1967, she never missed a class reunion. Her loyalty to her class was commendable. At the alumni banquets held each year in June, she was sometimes the only class of '67 graduate there to represent us. R.I.P Rosemary, you will be missed by not only me, but by so many of your fellow classmates . 🙏🏻

I was so sad to hear of Rosemary's passing. She was soft spoken, and when our paths crossed, she always had time to stop and talk with me. I am proud to have known Rosemary as a classmate and a forever friend. My last fond memory of her was the nice time that we had at our 50th class reunion. May God bless you Rosemary!
