Rosemary Eldredge Harding Obituary
Rosemary Eldredge Harding tragically passed away Monday, March 12, 2018 in an automobile accident, just south of Blackfoot, Idaho.
Rosemary was born December 12, 1955 in Blackfoot, Idaho to James A. and Edna Willie Eldredge. She had two older brothers: Kenneth (Charla) Eldredge, Boise, Idaho; Robert (Loretta) Eldredge, Pocatello, Idaho; and an older sister Joanne (Ed) Benson, Nampa, Idaho.
Rosemary graduated from high school in Loveland, Colorado and attended one year of college at Ricks College, Rexburg, Idaho.
After college, she decided to serve an LDS mission and was called to Auckland, New Zealand. She enjoyed her time there so much and always desired to return, but never had the opportunity. After she return from her mission, she worked at the INEL for many years.
On March 25, 1989, Rosemary married Lee Harding in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. Two years later, Dean Andrew was born to them and she delighted in being a mom. Dean was born with Downs syndrome, but that never stopped her from loving and enjoying him to the utmost. While she was working, Saturday was always her and Dean's special day. They sampled every favorite restaurant up and down the valley.
Rosemary and Dean were left on their own when Lee passed away in March of 2012, but she was blessed with an amazing and supportive church family that was always there to help and support her. She had a great testimony and loved her Ward so much. 
Rosemary was a very generous person and would help anyone in need. In her spare time she loved to bowl in several Blackfoot leagues, and help with Special Olympics.
She is survived by her son Dean and her brothers and sister. 
She was preceded in death by her husband and her parents.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, March 16, 2018 at the Blackfoot Northwest LDS Stake Center under the direction of the Hawker Funeral Home. There will be a closed casket viewing beginning at 12 p.m. for family and friends. Burial will be in the Moreland Cemetery where she will be laid to rest next to her husband. Condolences can be sent to the family at www.hawkerfuneralhome.com.
