Rosemary was one of my teachers at Sts. Peter and Paul School in the late 1960s. She was a vibrant person who could light up a room. She loved books, art and music and had a wonderful voice. Nothing but happy memories! My condolences to her dear ones who will miss her so much.
Remembering Miss Ford simply brings a smile and a wish that every student should have at least one Miss Ford in their lives.
