Rosemary Jenkins, age 76, passed away peacefully at home on November 20, 2018. She was devoted to her family. She always tried to watch out for them, protect them, and help them.
She was valedictorian of Chester High School. She worked for the Scott Paper Company and the United States Navy, took time to stay at home to raise her son, and returned to work at the Immaculate Heart of Mary religious education office. She went on to work for ICI, Zeneca, and Avecia. Through her life and career she always treated other people with respect and sincerity.
She loved to cook and make homemade pasta. The more friends and family that she cooked for, the happier she was. She loved to have the family together.
Rosemary was predeceased by her mother Phyllis, her husband Jack, her brother Joseph, and her nephew Joseph.
Rosemary is survived by her son, Jeffrey, her nieces Judy (Alex) Velazquez and Linda (Kent) Johnson, and extended family.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to the Swank Center for Memory Care and the Johns Hopkins University Department of Neurology.
Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11:00AM, Saturday, November 24, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 4701 Weldin Road, Wilmington. Entombment will follow at St. Agnes Cemetery. Friends may call at the Church one hour before the service.
