You would always see Rosemary smiling, laughing and joking with people and she would never pass you along the road without greeting you or just saying hello. She was always smartly dressed and loved her lipstick, makeup and jewellery.

She will be sadly missed by all her friends and family especially her mum Joyce, sisters Debbie, Marion, Miranda and son Cameron.
