Dear Rosemary & Family, I will miss you, Rosemary as an Oak Grove sister & send blessings and prayers to you and your family. You will be greatly missed by us all, and I am most grateful for the selfless dedication you showed in helping to organize our OG reunions. You set a shining example - what a lovely person you were and continue to be - in our memories. With Love, Sarah & Tom Greenier

To the family,
Rosemary was a dear friend from long ago in East Millinocket during my childhood and teenage years. We became reacquainted when she came back home and taught school in Millinocket, and I was proud to be her bridesmaid. I always enjoyed and cherished the times that we spent at her mom and dad's home. I always thought that she was the smartest and sweetest person that anyone could have for a friend. My deepest condolences,

My heartfelt prayers go out to the family. I didn't know Rosemary but, was touched to read all the kind and loving words spoken about her. Know that God and others care; he says "I have heard your prayers. I have seen your tears" 2 Kings 20:5.

Adieux Rosemary,
Thank you for your warm welcome when I became an active member of the Oak Grove Alumni...for your warm smiles and hugs in "sisterhood" at The Reunions..for all of your hard work and dedication hand-in-hand with Claranne to make "it" happen...I hold them very dear and very close.Of course,you know that you are greatly missed by so very many!
I enjoyed the Photo Gallery..always smiling,always well prepared always

She was my piano teacher for 5 years and every year was special. She became part of our family.

Rosemary was a very kind and humble person who always underestimated her excellent abilities. She will be greatly missed by all especially those in her Oak Grove class, for whom she did so much as she did for all of the reunion classes.
The world has lost a very caring soul.

Dear Mary and family,
My sincere condolences to all of you as you suffer the sorrow of your Mom's passing. May God comfort you.
Sarah LaJoie Sirois, Bowdoin '84
