Obituary for Rosemary Elizabeth Kasparian

Cherished wife (of 53 years), mother of 4, grandmother of 6, daughter, sister, aunt and cousin.

Rosemary was my mother, I was her only daughter and baby of the family with 3 older brothers. Nobody on Earth loves you like your mom. So where can I even begin.

Special, kind, generous, big heart, strong, loving

Some of the words I think of when I think of my mother. Rosemary’s favorite thing was when her family was all together. This is when she was her happiest. She would light up, almost glow, to be surrounded by her family. Especially the kids. She sure did love all babies! My mother never said no to singing and dancing. Music, whether oldies, Armenian or otherwise, brought her joy and even in her final weeks she got up to dance with the grandkids. Always up to do almost anything up until recent days. If you asked her to join you at the zoo, aquarium, lunch or even casino, she would always say yes! Moms priorities were always her family. That woman would find a way to help her family in any way she could. ( she would anything for us). Her passion for life started and ends with her family.
Her Heart was big - not selfish in any way. She was strong “tough as nails” as my brother always says. Even up until recently you would never hear my mom complain of pain, never felt sorry for herself, she always pushed forward with what she had. She was grateful for her life. Growing up I remember she would say the saying “if it is to be it is up to me.” She taught us to have faith in God and to follow in Him, but we still have to put in the work and she always did. A hard worker that was always doing or cleaning or rearranging something.

Rosemary had many interests over the years. Skiing in earlier years and some traveling. She enjoyed to bowl and was always crocheting a blanket for someone’s baby or bridal shower. She was always happy to go to the casino with her sister. My mom and dad (MARRIED 53 years) would take trips up north to our family cabin. They enjoyed walking on the property in the woods, making camp fires to roast marshmallows and my dad would even take her to the casino up north at times (even though he only went for my mother and the free popcorn :) )!
My mom always knew she wanted to have a family. It was important to her and marring my dad made this possible. Even before she had kids she spent a lot of her time with her nieces and nephews. She always spoke of her fond memories she had of all of them. She was very close to her sisters and enjoyed spending time with them.

Mom was a sweet, loving, caring mother who was strong and independent. Even up until her final days resisting help. She fought hard to stay with us as she wanted to continue to watch her grandchildren grow. Her sense of humor even stayed in her final weeks as she continued to give us great memories and lots of laughs. She was a very special person who made a big impact on a lot of people, I am left with a giant hole in my heart that will take a long time to heal. But I will remember my mom and make her many wonderful qualities apart of me and my children. We will remember her in all that we do, I miss you already mom.

I feel very honored to have been able to spend so much time with my mom especially in her final weeks and help her in anyway that I could and be with her until the end. I will cherish these moments forever. I am very happy that with the help of my family we were able to keep her comfortable and at home with her family. I know this is what she wanted.

Ill leave you with this…
Life is a gift from God
Savor your family, your children, friends, neighbors, and strangers. Some days may be full of hardships and sadness, but each breath, heartbeat and thought describes the beautiful gift of life. Focus on the good. Keep the positive memories alive and thank God for the blessings in your past, present and future. Be grateful. Laugh often.

“For we live by faith, not by sight”
-2 Corinthians 5:7

I forever love you mom
I miss you already
Until we meet again
Your loving daughter
