Bradley, Rosemary (McDonald)
Rosemary, 85, joined her beloved Thomas Joseph, in heaven on February 24, 2013 in Santa Monica, California. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, she worked for chief pilots of former Northwest Orient Airlines scheduling flights as well as enjoying travels throughout the United States. Her travels included Phoenix, Arizona, where she was introduced by Father Victor Bucher, O.F.M., on the church steps of St. Mary's Basilica to Tom Bradley, owner of Bradley Printers. They married in June 1963 and will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary together in heaven. Rosemary enjoyed entering cooking contests, writing cookbooks and bringing seniors together for monthly luncheons and mass at St. Gregory's Catholic Church. She and Tom founded the 'Adopt' A Student Program, an annual parish appeal to raise funds to assist parents in giving their children a Catholic school education. She is survived by her daughter Rebecca Bradley of Santa Monica, sister Veronica Coughlin, and brother Bob McDonald (Eloise) of Minneapolis, Minnesota, nieces, nephews, and many friends. Rosemary's ashes will be spread along the California coastline where she loved ocean views while drinking Corona. Donations made be made to 'Adopt' a Student Program, St. Gregory's Catholic Church, 3424 N.18th Ave, Phx, AZ 85015.
