(Thursday - November 26, 2020) - Rosemary (Darovich) Geronimi, age 92, passed away on Monday, November 23, at Maryhill Manor. She was born December 11, 1927 in Iron Mountain, daughter of the late Charles and Ludmilla Darovich. She was married to Donald E. Geronimi for 46 years, and was a loving wife and mother of six children who always brought joy and laughter to the lives of her family and others. Rosemary was a loyal friend, lover of nature, creative spirit and was always on the lookout for a good garage sale or auction. As an old friend once said, "She was the real deal because she lived her life authentically and with purpose each day."

In addition to her husband Donald, she was preceded in death by her baby daughter Dayna Ludmilla Geronimi (precious angel), her father and mother Charles and Ludmilla Darovich, her eldest brother Carl Darovich and her mother and father-in-law Anatole and Marie Geronimi.

She is survived by her children Donn Geronimi (Paula), Darcy McKenzie (Wayne), Dann Geronimi (Vicki), Deidre Teikari (Bob) and Dylan Geronimi and his children, the grandchildren who brought her so much joy, Evan, Ayden, and Zoie Geronimi. She has one surviving brother, Robert Darovich (Jean).

Rosemary was blessed with many extended family members, lifelong friends and caretakers who unfortunately are too many to note, but are extended our gratitude. Her sister-in-law, Mary Richard, is extended special thanks for her care and friendship during good and challenging times.

Due to Covid/health considerations, burial will be private. Expressions of sympathy may be donated to Maryhill Manor, Memory Care Unit, Niagara, Wisconsin; or the Alzheimer's Association. The family gives heartfelt thanks to the Maryhill staff for their compassionate and specialized care of Rosemary over the past several years.
