Rosemary was my best friend growing up. When I think of my childhood it is of the Turner family.. This family has meant so much to the Brynteson family, we love each person. But I loved Rosemary. She was my maid of honor . No one could have stood with me but her. Besides being my maid of honor my favorite memory of us was when we had to dump the water from the ringer washer. We was carrying the water in a large tub to the bathroom to dump and dropped it. Water was everywhere in the kitchen. We opened up the side porch door and started sweeping as we laughed our heads off. Rosemary was a wonderful person and God has one special angel now.

The Newport Schools family has lost a treasured member. Rosemary dedicated her life to serving Newport schools and kids. To me as a teacher, she was a great leader, teammate and friend. Thank you Rosemary for giving us your all. RIP
