    Ron and family,
    I was saddened this morning when I learned Rosemary had passed and gone to heaven with God and Norman. She lived a beautiful full life and reached her final destination. Ron, you well know Rosemary was like a second mother to me. Working together supporting Leo and Dick Werner, we shared many personal things. Rosemary was my rock and “go to person” after my mom died in 1979. Her family and church family were the world to her. Whenever my family and I would be in Greenville to visit my dad, we always went out to visit her. Each morning I read a devotion from the book Jesus Calling that she gave me. Rosemary will be deeply missed and my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to you, Lexi, and the rest of the family!

    Sincerely, Kathy McMaster Blankenship

    Aunt Rosemary was such a wonderful person, always a rock for everyone she came in contact with.
    She loved her family, and her brothers and sisters in the church.
    She was such a sweet, sweet woman. We were all blessed to have her in our lives.
    She can now rest with her husband Uncle Norman, brothers, sisters, and her Mother Rose Wise.
    God rest your soul Aunt Rosemary you will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear this. Ron and I were on the same Babe Ruth baseball team and I hung around with him on other occasions. His Mom was always so nice to us when we hung out at his house. RIP Mrs. Jones!

    Ron and family, it was a true blessing to get to know your mother. She was one special classy lady. She joined us for a back yard hot dog roast and had her very first Smores a couple years ago. Always enjoyed chatting with her. Hard to believe she is gone. Will miss her.
