I, like others commenting here, remember Rosemary for her humor, her compassion, her sense of family, her love for Jim Jones and their family and friends. We worked together at Cannon Memorial Hospital for soooooo many years. She was always trying to improve on what she had just improved on. What a gal! Much love to Erin, Megan and Pat.

I may not have known Aunt Roe as well as others, but I do know that she was a wonderful person who knew how to make people laugh and smile. I have heard many stories from my mother and my grandmother about Aunt Roe and how she was such a joy to be around. She will be deeply missed but I know that she will be able to rest peacefully and be able to reunite with other loved ones who we have lost. You will be forever in our thoughts and prayers.

I knew you were not well, but you went too fast. Too fast for my selfish reasons. I'll miss your humor and your smile. I'll miss your company. But I also know that you are in the company of ancestors past, and loved ones gone before and one day I will see you again in the house that was prepared for us. Love you mom.

I will remember Aunt Roe for her humor! It seems that she was always laughing! May she Rest In Peace. I’m comforted knowing that now my mom (her sister, Carol) has company in heaven.
