Rosemary Selberg Obituary
ROSEMARY SELBERG Rosemary was a California girl, born in Wilmar, a small town in the San Gabriel Valley. In grade school, she once got in trouble with the teacher for keeping her eyes open during rest period, turned out to be an early sign of never wanting to miss anything in life. After high school in Rosemead, Rosemary's first job was working the lunch counter at Woolworth's department store. A young woman's dream job, she could eat all she wanted while she worked. Then she landed another dream job. As a telephone operator, she could talk all the while she worked. After a short stint in Oregon, Rosemary returned to California and went to school to become a Medical Assistant. She went on to work for Doctor Peyton and Doctor Christian in Beaumont for 20 years. During her years working for the two long time Beaumont doctors, she gave many of the current leaders of the Pass their baby shots. In 1990, Rosemary married Ron Selberg, thereby saving him from a life of waving cardboard signs on the off-ramps. They made their home in East Highland Ranch where Rosemary started an aerobics and walking group. In 1993, Rosemary joined the Loma Linda Lopers. Eight months later, she completed her first LA Marathon. Rosemary loved the challenge and excitement of marathons and went on to complete 22 full marathons all over the western states. She felt the tops of Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. San Jacinto under her hiking boots. She ran her marathons and lived her life with a joy and enthusiasm that will be missed by all who loved her. Her loss is daily and deeply felt by many, her husband Ron, her son Rick Ciauri, her son Jason Coon, her brothers Bob Ciauri and Jon Ciauri along with all their families; a host of friends from every stage of her life, her cat Molly and stray animals of all sorts who were nurtured by her kindness. Her life was full of adventure and joy, always lived with her eyes wide open.
