Newark - Rosemary Griffin Weiss, age 101, passed away on September 6, 2018, in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. She was born on July 8, 1917 in Lima, Ohio to Charles and Forrest Griffin.

She had lived in the Newark/Harbor Hills area from 1945 until 2011, when she moved to California to be near her daughter.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Linda Weiss of Knoxville, TN; her daughter and son-in-law, Susan and Don Kasle of Mission Viejo, CA; her grandson, Kevin (Michelle) Weiss of Knoxville, TN; her granddaughters, Kristin (Michael) Keyes of Detroit, MI, Alisa Kasle-Henke of Germany, Jennifer Kasle Furmaniak of Los Angeles and six great-grandchildren, Daniel and Sophie Henke, Sam and Sadie Furmaniak and Tyler and Nathan Weiss.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry Weiss, who was the owner of Larry's Drug Stores in Newark; her sister, Bonnie Zeigler; brothers, George and Tom Griffin; nine nieces and nephews and their families. She was the matriarch of this large, extended family.

Rosemary attended The Ohio State University and was a life long Buckeye fan having football tickets for over 50 years. Another passion of hers was golf. She was a member of Moundbuilders Country Club, Harbor Hills Country Club and Zanesville Country Club and won the women's club championship at each of these clubs. She passed this love of golf on to her children. She also loved going to Sanibel Island in the winter and became an avid sheller, collecting hundreds of shells each year and then making beautiful creations from these shells.

In addition, Rosemary also loved traveling. She had been to every state in the country and many foreign countries.
