    So sorry! I tried to see her last week, but as you know it didnn’t work out. She’ll be so very missed by Catholic Daughters as well as all of you. A grand lady and friend!

    A grand lady and a true friend to many. She will be missed. Rest In Peace.

    I’ll miss seeing her at conventions. Loved working with her all the time. She always had a smile and great things to say.

    Many Prayers to you Jeff and Family. Jeff talked very highly of his mother, and through him, I got to know what an amazing woman RoseMary is. May she rest in peace. God Bless you all!

    I met RoseMary though Catholic Daughters, while we had that in common we grew to be good friends. RoseMary was a great woman, great friend and strong in her faith. I will miss her greatly. My sympathy goes out to all of her family.

    RoseMary and I met through Catholic daughters. She had called me several times to see if I I’d help either at a state convention or just being a district deputy. I helped at both. She helped me become the person I am today. If it wasn’t for her, I would not have had the guts to try something different, like wanting to be a state officer in Catholic daughters. Thank you RoseMary for believing in me. I will miss you.

    Thinking about all of you in this time of sorrow. Rosie was such a wonderful neighbor and amazingly patient with all the friends popping through her home while we were all growing up. I will always remember her smile. My prayers go out to you.

    Such very hard news to hear. Forty years this very week since I began a happy decade working for Big Ed at National American, sharing an office with Rol, and meeting Rosie. Countless good memories involving the Shald and Pedersen families going so very far back, now. (And who knows how many meals at Leos or the Tropics!) We mark better times in this vaporous life partly by recalling the better people whom we were blessed to know in them. Rosie was surely on that list for me. As tears come, now, thinking of her and her dear family, I hold also in mind that eternal promise of Revelation 21:4, where our Lord assures His own how He shall one day ‘wipe away all tears; and that there shall no longer be any sorrow, or crying, or pain, or death’, only His loving presence.

    I just learned of RoseMary’s passing. I knew her through church activities and a shared profession. I will miss her smile and hug.

    As I prepare to return to Omaha, I recollect having seen Rosie at a National Catholic Daughters conference. When I was a very new nurse she was the Director of Nurses at Bergan. Yes, she was a wonderful woman.
