She was united in marriage to Ralph Britson in 1972 in Seabrook, TX. Rosemary was a friend to people of all ages and had a special ability to relate with others. She took a deep interest in peoples lives and gave a lot of her time volunteering for the United Way. Rosemary enjoyed nature, walks in the park, reading and music.
