Rosemary was born March 16, 1923, in Atlanta, Georgia to the late Edward Stanhope Chastain and Gertrude Hyatt Chastain.

Rosemary was a founding member of the La Grange Garden Club and was a former Girl Scout leader. She enjoyed long walks, swimming, bridge and was a helluva good cook. She worked many years for the Lenoir County Board of Elections at the Mosley Hall Polling Station and has given countless amounts of blood to the American Red Cross. Her most significant role in life and what she did best was being a loving mother and grandmother.
