Rosemary loved to play Bingo, crafting, crocheting, playing cards, and especially spending time with anybody she could. She was Josh and Laynee’s biggest fan and loved to attend their hockey games when she could. Rosie was always smiling when she was with family and friends and had the ability to transfer her smile to anyone she was with!
