Rosemary truly enjoyed serving others. First and most importantly, she tirelessly supported her family, organizing family camping trips, serving as a Cub Scout Den mother, and attending thousands of hours of children’s activities. She supported her community through her dietician career, through her church where she served on various committees, and through other community service projects. Growing up she was a camp counselor, and taught horseback riding to youth. She enjoyed traveling and visiting family, reading, playing the Dulcimer in a local musical group, and hiking and hosting the BULLI hiking club.
