To Aunt Betty, Beth, and the whole Grandusky and Streff family: I'm so sorry that you now have a very sorrowful void in your lives, since God decided he wanted Rho with him in heaven. There's nothing I can say to reduce your heartache and tears, although I wish there were. Just know that I think about all of you often, and say a prayer every time I do.

To Steve and the entire Grandusky Family! Rosemary was a fighter down to the end! Last fall I saw her out and about doing things as if everything was normal and she was so upbeat. Her condition did not bring her down. Seeing her travel and do things that she loved was truly amazing. She was such a brave and inspiring person to us all. We will miss her.

I have not seen Rosemary for years, but I remember her well. we worked together as new graduate nurses at Genesee on CW-5. She always had a smile on her face, was calm and kind. She was pregnant with first child and ate cottage cheese for lunch to keep her weight down. I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry I won't be able to make the service since I'm out of town for a while. Rosemary was my "boss" in the OR at Highland Hospital. I found her to be kind, even handed and dedicated to her profession. I saw her from time to time after I left the OR and she was very friendly and it seemed the time lapse meant nothing. She was a happy lady, and it showedl
I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed beyond words, but remembered with nothing but love and great memories.
