Rosemary Patricia Tole Murtha


Rosemary Patricia Tole Murtha, of Waikoloa, Hawaii, passed away on October 17th. She spent 33 years on the Jersey Shore before moving to the Big Island of Hawaii, where she lived in paradise every day.

Rosemary was married to her husband John for 46 years, but their love story began as teenagers, when they met at a dance at St. Matthew's School in Philadelphia. To call them soulmates isn't really enough, there may not be a word strong enough to describe the bond that the two had with one another. Rosemary and John traveled the world together, taking many trips and cruises to far flung points across the globe.

Rosemary is survived by her loving husband, John, her daughter and son-in-law, Noreen and John Baldwin, her grandsons, John Murtha and Thomas Baldwin. She is predeceased by her father, James Tole, her mother-in-law, Clementine Kebert Murtha, and her brother-in-law, Thomas Kirby, Belmar.

A memorial to celebrate Rosemary's life is scheduled for November 4th, at the Shillelagh Club in Belmar, from 12-4pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation would be appreciated. Rosemary would also have appreciated people considering being an organ donor, as someone else so generously did for her.
