Rosemary was the proud co-owner of Wauwatosa Day Care and Learning Centers for 45 years. She had a love for children and provided them a place to be creative and thrive.
She enjoyed the family condo in Door County for many years with family and friends. She was an avid sports fan and loved keeping up with her Wisconsin teams.
Rosemary got so much joy in seeing others enjoy. She believed that the center of the family was to break bread together around a table and share stories and conversation.
