I met RoseMarie many years ago, in 1956, when I graduated from Steelton High School and got my first real job at the Bell Telephone Co. in the steno unit of the Engineering Dept. RoseMarie had been there for a few years before the rest of us incoming "newbies" and instantly took us under her wings. She willingly showed us the ropes and taught us more than the actual supervisor did! She was a good friend and a terrific teacher. I'll always remember how kind and patient she was with all of us. Rest in peace, Dear Friend!

We are both so sorry to hear of Rose's passing. She was a wonderful neighbor for many years, she always stopped to say "Hi" and admire our one flowering tree. Plus I will miss seeing her at the turkey hill. She will be missed. Memory Eternal!

Rest in peace, Rosemarie. Thanks for being a great neighbor since I moved here 3+ years ago. I'll miss you yelling HI to me when we saw each other. God Bless you and your family. The neighborhood won't be the same.

I had the privilege of working with Ann Marie. She was quite a very nice and bubbley lady. Always made you laugh. May she RIP.

Dear Michelle and family,
So sorry to hear of the passing of your dear Aunt RoseMarie. I remember her from years ago when Michelle and my sister Mary Rose would do things together. She was such a nice person. Cherish the wonderful memories and may God bless you all at this sad time.

She certainly will be missed by many, God Bless Her, she liked going to the Casino on occasion and ride with me, we would listen to music I had on radio and didn't hesitate to tell me she didn't like that singer, but she still listened.
