Rosemary Kovacic Wensel Thorpe, 88, of Presto, died Wednesday, June 13, 2012. She was a strong, loving woman with an open heart and a wicked sense of humor.

She was the wife of the late Henry James Thorpe; mother of the late James Gary (Ruth) Thorpe, Elizabeth Dianne (Sonny) Fiorentini, the late Rudolph Terrence Thorpe, Mark Paul (Sheila) Thorpe, Mary Marcia Thorpe, Matthew Henry (Paula) Thorpe and surrogate "mom" to Richard Williamson. She was grandmother to Jennifer (Chip), James Clark, Margie (Chris), April, the late Tracey, Brenna, Catherine and McKenzie Rose; great-grandmother of Brandon, James, Katy, Krystin, Jessica, Cody and Emilyn Rose; also great-great-grandmother of Zoey (the little girl with the dog's name).
