Rosemary Joyce Bottaro was born in Longville, Louisiana. When she was just one year of age her family moved to Dallas, Texas. At age thirteen she traveled to Portland, Oregon to join family living there. She attended and graduated from Parkrose High School, went on to marry her high school sweetheart (Raymond Bottaro). They were married for 23 years, and had one child (Denise). Rosemary was a stay at home mom until Denise was attending high school. She then went to work for Lincoln Park Elementary School. Rosemary worked at the school for fifteen years during that time she made many wonderful lifelong friends.
Rosemary is survived by her daughter Denise Arndt (Chuck Feldhacker), grandchildren Amy Smith (Corbin Smith), Ellie Purdy (Alex Purdy) and Jacob Feldhacker (Jenea Feldhacker) along with 7 great grandchildren.
In the future the family plans on having a celebration of life for Rosemary – the date will be announced at a later time.
