Memories Timeline


  1. You were an incredible friend to my late sister Suzanne & late mom Betty. They thoroughly enjoyed your many outings & time spent together. Rest in Peace sweet RoseMary.❤️❤️

  2. Rosemary had a wonderfully magnetic personality. She was an extremely intelligent woman and I will always remember her courage, grace and perseverance through the many challenges of aging. It was truly an inspiration and a blessing crossing paths with her in life. She was my muse.

  3. My dear sweet Rose! You have reached into my heart and gave it a little tug. I will miss our talks and all the stories you told. You transported me to England and to New York. You always asked about Arnie’s health and got on me for not eating. You would ask about my grandkids and when they would visit again. When they would come see you, you always seemed to have candy for them. It breaks my heart that you are gone, but I find comfort that you are at peace. Love you.

  4. Oh Miss Rosemary. We had so much fun together. All our trips to the train station and listening to Tupac!!I loved listening to all of your stories. Especially the one were you flew between the two pilots while sitting on a bucket. It will always be one of my fondest memories celebrating your 100th birthday with you. You will always be top shelf to me!
    I love you
    Donna Smith

  5. Sweet Rose Mary was our neighbor for several years, she always made you smile and A very Special Angel in Heaven,

  6. I will miss our Friday afternoons spent talking, listening to music, searching the internet and watching your birds and very fat squirrels. Rest in paeace, sweet lady, and say Hello to Charles for me <3 Kathy Shader

  7. Sweet Rosemary I so enjoyed our time together. You were my customer first and now my family. I hope you know how loved you were by so many people. I hope you are up there in heaven dancing with Charles and Tina Turner. Always know you were “Simply the best.” Rest in peace sweet Rosemary. I love and miss you always… Love Donna

  8. I’m so sad to find this. Rosemary was my aunt. She was an extraordinary woman. We loved her outstanding intelligence, humour and courage. What a Woman. ‘Aunt Rosemary’ – long lost and refound. RIP. Sue and Paul. Any more memories of her would be wonderful.

  9. Miss Rosemary, I knew you only a short time and the last time I saw you was near your 102nd birthday. We had lunch and you were one of the most interesting ladies I’ve ever known. I loved to hear you talk about your life and your adventures. We always said we were going to take a train ride. I still have not. I tried to call you but got no answer and went by your condo and didn’t look like you lived there anymore. So sorry I didn’t know what happened to you. You made a difference in many people’s lives, especially mine. Rest in Peace.

  10. For some reason today, I googled Miss Scott out of the blue, and was so sorry to see that she had recently passed.
    I used Rosemary Scott Temps, in ‘NYC in the 1980’s and she told me she lived very close to me. Almost around the corner. She was a lovely woman.
    !05 is a pretty good run. May she RIP 🙏🏻
