Rosemary was born August 30, 1939 at Montenotte Park, Cork, Ireland to Daniel and Hannah Madden. Fifth of six surviving children, Rosemary adventures began at age 28 traveling to Canada as member of Frontier Apostle’s to Canada.
While on a road trip from Prince George to Smithers BC, she met her future husband David where they eventually married in Smithers BC. Remaining true to her Irish Catholic roots, she became a member of the Smithers CWL regularly involved with cooking and baking events and stayed dedicated to wearing green on St. Patricks’ Day.
High energy and memorable laughter kept Rosemary busy and socially active. Due to the changing health of her husband, Rosemary moved to Kamloops retired for about 15 years, then moved again with husband to Victoria in 2015 which brought her closer to her children.
Rosemary’s adventures included may road-trips, camping in BC, trips back to Ireland in addition to ocean cruising with David when possible. Liked by many – she will be missed.
A celebration of life event for Rosemary will be held between 1 and 3 pm on Friday July 15, 2022 at Masons Kitchen & Bar 1000 Clubhouse Drive, Kamloops, BC.
