Rosemarie “Rosie” Limmer departed on August 17, 2021, from natural causes.

Rosemarie was born in Pirmasens, Germany on December 28, 1941. Proceeded in death by her daughter, Christina Limmer and husband, Thomas D. Limmer.  She is survived by her children, Heidi, Michael, and Rosemarie A.; along with many grandchildren.

Born into a large but humble family, Rosemarie, knew the struggle of life and the importance of hard work. Her first job was working in a shoe factory. Her hard-earned wages were given to her parents to support the home. Even when she left her parents’ house, she worked hard. Finding work as a waitress. It would become a lifelong career. In addition, lead her to find her soulmate, Thomas, a young GI from the States.

Her marriage to Thomas led her to leave Germany, coming stateside, which was no easy task. However, she persevered. Learning English on her own and procuring a job no matter where her husband got stationed, and all the while taking care of three children. Rosemarie embodied the endurance of body and spirit.

Her longest and most rewarding employment would come from the Fort Eustis Club on base. For almost 50 years she gave five-star service to all the came through the doors; from civilians to Generals. Often recognized for her proficiency in all aspects of hospitality. Everyone she met was captivated by her charisma and generosity. It would be a lifelong career, as she worked right up till the end.  However, her proudest accomplishments were being a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Rosemarie was an extraordinary woman who led a long, fulfilling life. She will be dearly missed.
