Rosemary Kearney Phillips, 69, died on Tuesday, July 12, 2011. Rosemary was born in Franklin Co. NC to the late Annie and H. Willard Kearney on April 5, 1942.
Rosemary was a faithful woman that received great joy through active participation within her church community. She understood that she could exemplify her faith through service to her fellow man. By visiting with skilled nursing facilities, rest homes and other such establishments, she was pleased to tend and care for others who were less fortunate than herself. She regularly volunteered with the elderly and convalescent for many years. On many occasions, she would provide care packages with such volume that transportation would require the enlistment of friends and neighbors. Rosemary was privileged to have touched so many lives and will be greatly missed by all.
Rosemary is deeply loved and will be remembered by her daughters Karen Freeman Thompson of Creedmoor, NC; Crystal Freeman Womble Danny of Creedmoor, NC; son Joseph Todd Freeman Tammy Renee of Wake Forest, NC; brother H. Willard Kearney, Jr. of Franklinton, NC; sister Annette Kearney McGhee of Franklinton, NC; grandchildren Lauren Thompson, Haleigh Thompson, Lindsey Freeman, Andrew Womble, Anna Freeman and Allyson Freeman; great grandchildren Blaine Mann and Briley Mann.
