I am so saddened to hear of Rosemary's passing. She was a wonderful neighbor and mentor when our family lived in Poplar Grove. We enjoyed many a beautiful smile, as well as those famous homemade rolls. She always seemed to have some yummy cookies in her cookie jar when we stopped by. And yes, we always admired her flowers, especially the lovely peonies. The kids used to walk their show animals, pigs, sheep and heifers up Rosemary and Franklyn's driveway in the summer. They always came outside to talk to the kids about their animals. We missed them both so much when we moved away. Love to all the family. You are blessed to have been cared for Rosemary!
