Help Lay Rosemary Kucharski to Rest

We will never meet another person like my Grandma Rose. She was silly and strong and just as aggressively stubborn as she was kind. She was everyone’s best friend, and the pain that we feel is so strong only because she was loved so very much. For myself personally I wouldn’t be who I am today without her love and support. She was my greatest strength, my rock, my light, and my hero. She was the strongest person I have ever met and I am reaching inside of myself, because I know she shared it with me and with all of us. See while she loved her plants, her dogs, her games; she LOVED her family above all else. We came first, she took all phone calls and listened to all complaints and when you made a choice she didn’t agree with, she’d listen to you again the next day. Thinking about it now, her love for her family was where her strength must have come from because all of us here today sharing her stories and her heart is where I am finding my own.

Rosemary Kucharski passed away Saturday, January 27th suddenly from Influenza in her sleep with her family, her pups, and her plants - in her own home. She leaves behind brothers and sisters, daughters and sons, and grandchildren. Her youngest son is 11 years old, and will be staying in his home with me, his brother Liam.

She had recently switched her life insurance policy and in calling to retrieve it she had not had the policy long enough to collect from it.

I, Liam O'Rourke, will be handlingthe final expenses with help and guidance from my family. If you are able, please donate to her funeral costs so myself and my family can say goodbye and honor her life. Thank You.
