December 28, 1930 - December 29, 2022
Rosemary Wren was Born on December 28, 1930 in Gower, Missouri to George and Mary Wren and passed away on December 29, 2022 after just turning 92 years of age. She was the youngest of five sisters and survived them all.
Rosemary attended school in Plattsburg, Missouri, and then, with her mother, followed three of her older sisters to Phoenix, Arizona at seventeen.
Rosemary started her career at Valley Bank and made numerous friends who stayed in contact. Her next job took her to Sutter Trust Company. Once again, the company took great care of Rosemary, making sure that she would retire without concern. Many members of this company were like family to her. Rosemary had several temporary jobs, some lasting a day or two until she ended her career path working for Attorney David Ramirez as a legal assistant. As we go through her photo albums there are pictures of his family included as well.
Rosemary attended Catholic mass at many locations including the Chapel at St. Joe's, Saint Francis and Saint Gregory. In addition, she enjoyed numerous hobbies including sewing, knitting, crocheting, art and gardening. She and her sister Patricia made clothes for children and distributed them through St. Vincent among other organizations. Rose did quite a bit of traveling around Arizona and traveled with her sisters visiting Missouri, Kansas, Hawaii, Japan, England and Ireland.
Rosemary remembered past relations and friends through letters, prayer cards, obituaries and correspondence.
She is survived by many nieces and nephews: Kathy, Teri, Sharon, Cece, James, Gail, John and Charles as well as numerous great and great great nieces and nephews.
We will miss her spunk and wit, her stories of the past and knowing you could stop in without calling at the same spot for 74 years!
