Rosemarie Smith died peacefully at Pine Run in Doylestown on Sunday February 27, 2022. She was 89.
Born in Roselle, NJ, she met the love of her life while working at Prudential Insurance Company. She and Ray married in 1954 and moved to Doylestown in 1971.
Rosemarie was passionately devoted to her husband, children and grandchildren, working hard to encourage and support their work, activities and adventures.
Her interests included painting (awarded Best Artist in her high school), cooking, travel and spending time with her many friends. Rosemarie had an enduring love of animals both wild and domestic. The wildlife around her home were always well fed. She and Ray raised several top breed dogs and there were always a cat or two underfoot. For a time they had two thoroughbred horses that raced at Philadelphia Park.
She was a kind, loving and funny woman. The impact she left on family and friends will not fade with her passing.
Rosemarie is survived by her three children: Maryjo of Doylestown, Raymond P. (Jennifer) of Solebury and Terry (Nancy) of New Hope, as well as her five beloved grandchildren: R.J., Kelsey, Matthew, Brendan and Mallory and her brother, Steve.
She was predeceased by her husband, Raymond G Smith; her parents, Steven and Maria Rizzo and her siblings: Josephine, Anthony, Dominic, Helen and Lena.
Services and interment will be private.
