Add Your Own

Donna &Andy Roddenbery

Rosemary was a sister to be admired-beautiful, smart, popular in high school (cheerleader), a wonderful wife and mother. Her marriage to Charles Haney got her out of Blakeman Hollow (Holler) and we all wanted to get out of the hollow because all we did was work and Rosemary did her share. Our mom and dad went to market in Portsmouth every Saturday to sell whatever we had-vegetables, flowers, eggs and other farm produce. Among those were chickens. Yes, we're talking chop off the head, watch it flop, dip it in boiling water in an outdoor pot, senge it and pick the feathers off. Among other things Rosemary's job was to dress the chicken and prepare it for packaging to sell. Being nine years younger I got to watch that process mostly.
When Rosemary was dating Charles I specifically remember Her sitting on the edge of the bed by the bay window in my parent's bedroom anxiously awaiting the sound of Charle's car coming over the hill. His car took her out of the hollow and into a wonderful world of fun and excitement as his career in the army unfolded into a successful voyage.
Her path was one of example and admiration. Rosemary, you will be missed but remembered.
