Rosemary T Bacon Obituary

Rosemary Bacon, 88, of Three Oaks, formerly of Albuquerque, New Mexico, died peacefully, Friday, May 24, 2024.

           Her life began May 27, 1935, in Bald Knob, Arkansas, the eldest of five children born to Ray and Juil Tarwater. She married Fred Bacon February 13, 1960, in Three Oaks, Michigan.  After forty-two years of marriage, he preceded her in death July 7, 2002.

           In 1951, Rosemary moved to Three Oaks, Michigan where she attended the local high school, she then moved to South Bend. In 1971, she and Fred moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico where she started her daycare business called “The Other Mother”. She would care for upward of ten children and loved them all unconditionally. Rosemary was considered a mother figure to her siblings.  After her husband passed, she moved back to Three Oaks and re-started her daycare business, caring for six local children. After nearly fifty years, Rosemary officially retired in 2019.   

           Rosemary will be greatly missed by family and friends.
