Rosemary was a great inspiration to both my late husband Robert and to me. Thank you for all you taught us on and off the court. My sincere condolences to the family. Judith Lockwood. Reno, Nevada

I always thought I would get to see Rosemary again as we bumped into one another in our various travels around DeWitt. I will always think of her fondly.

Rosemary was so full of life, and a joy to travel with. She will be remembered by all who knew her and traveled behind her on this country's curvy roads in her Miata's. Our prays are for her and her family.

Rosemary a special car club friend. We had only a few club drives where we had the chance to talk, but those times were always enjoyable and we always shared a laugh. I wish I had known you better there was clearly more to share. I will miss you and the Starlight.

Rosemary, I've been remembering all the great times we had over the years, both in the Miata Club and elsewhere. You were always a great friend to me, telling it like it is, and sharing your life in a truly meaningful way. Our trip to San Diego in 2015 in your new Miata was particularly memorable. Godspeed my dear friend. You will be greatly missed.

Rosemary you meant so much to so many and especially me I will never forget all the support you offer me. Thank you so much for sharing of your wisdom, It started on a shared plane ride from east coast to west coast to our world conference in Tucson AZ.. This friendship absolutely will live. RIP my friend,

The light she shared will continue to shine in the hearts and lives of all who loved Rosemary. My deep sympathy to her family and especially to Posey's sister Rosy who shares her vivacious personality and friendly encouragement to all who know her.

To Rosemary's friends and family and wide net of tennis colleagues, I join with you in grief over her passing. Her enthusiasm, encouragement, and practical advice will be missed by all of us. RIP, Rosemary: we were so fortunate to have you for the time we did.
