Rosemarie Ann Reilly

Rosemarie Ann Reilly, age 74, of Jefferson passed away Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Ro was a wonderful, loving, and caring wife, mother, Mommom, sister, and friend. She loved to travel and visit, and spent many of her last years all over the world vacationing with her beloved family and friends. Memories of crowded dinner tables and tailgates full of Mommom meatballs, gravy, pierogies, and candied yams are with all she left behind. She was a fixture at her childrens and grandchildrens events-football, soccer, wrestling, lacrosse, high school and college graduations were some of her most cherished special events. She also played a mean game of scrabble to all who challenged her. In her later years she took up knitting and painting and her blankets, scarves, and pictures adorn the houses of so many friends and relatives. She was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Highland Mills, NY where she was at Knights of Columbus and at St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Jefferson, GA. She served on the Ladies Auxillary in the Highland Mills Fire Department. Rosemarie worked
