She and David moved their family to Easley in 1980 after his residency in Greenville.
They quickly found a place in the community; they joined Easley Presbyterian Church and became active members. She also served as President of the S.C. Medical Auxiliary was a Pickens County YMCA board member and joined a tennis team and bridge club. Her love of reading was demonstrated through her membership in The Book Club. She enjoyed reading fiction and non-fiction and gave excellent programs. She had been head majorette in her high school band and had fun teaching her friends’ little girls a majorette class.
Rosemary was a cherished wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She and
David (RoRo and DeDa) loved nothing more than spending time with their family. She was fun to be around with her wonderful sense of humor, quick wit and sometimes feisty nature!
