I became acquainted with Rosemary when I started working at the Hamilton Post Office.She was so nice and helpful to me, it made the office a fun place to work.I am so glad that I had the good fortune to become friends with both Rosemary and Owen.

CandleRosemary was a wonderful lady. I loved taking care of her. Talking with her was a pleasure. I will greatly miss her. She has stolen my heart. I love her family also. My heart goes out to all of you.

CandleI got to know grandma Taylor in her later years, she always had a smile on her face and a family that loved her. She will be dearly missed! My mother, Gloria and I will continue with our family tradition and add her to our list of flower remembrance every Memorial Day.

She was very kind and our neighbor for years. My heart goes out to the Taylor family.

Alicia Murphy on Mar 5, 2018

Rosemary was such a great person to visit with. My mother and her had several talks about people from the Carthage Post Office since my father worked there as well. I personally got to visit with her when she had her best friend "Baby" the Montrose Health Center cat in her lap. Not many people got to have Baby sit with them. She will be missed by all who knew her.
