to care for and love. She was also an avid reader and books surrounded her
throughout her life. Even in her last days she could be seen reading one of her
travel books. In her later years Rosemary became an extensive traveler going
throughout the world. Rosemary also loved baseball, but mostly was an avid
Chicago Cubs fan thrilling at their World Series win in 2016.
