Rosemary Cathrine Springer, aged nearly 90, from New Richmond, WI, passed away peacefully in the Arbor of the Deerfield in the loving arms of her daughter on Monday, November 6, 2023. Rosemary was born the daughter of Raymond and Esther (Boucher) Sullivan on November 18, 1933. She attended the one room Squaw Lake School for eight years and graduated from New Richmond High School. Rosemary entered the United States Navy soon after graduating high school, and honorably discharged in February of 1954. She was a patriotic woman and remained active in service to her country by being deeply involved for decades in the Women’s Auxiliary of the American Legion and as an election judge in Saint Croix county. Because Rosemary was wildly famous and mildly notorious, she was known and loved by oh-so-many people, too many actually to put a number to. For many years, Rosemary ran the Duebers Fabrics store on the main street of New Richmond. She was a master seamstress with her greatest creations being wedding dresses. Rosemary had a wicked sense of humor and was an exceptional artist. Her creativity and vivid imagination came to life through her works of oil paintings, water paintings, pencil drawings, and hundreds of meticulous woodcarvings. Rosemary was most content while sitting at her carving table, covered to her knees in wood chips, with one or two grandchildren noodling around on the floor at her feet with their own carving knife and a stick. Being dang near 90 years old, Rosemary was preceded in death by almost her entire generation of family and two daughters-in-law, Elizabeth (Tom) Nirmaier and Jennifer (Greg) Springer. Her younger brother, Norman Sullivan, from Harrison, Arkansas, is the lone exception. Rosemary begrudgingly left behind her four children and their wives/significant others; Sons, Tom (Barb Murphy) Nirmaier, Joe (Kate) Nirmaier, Greg (Shawn) Springer; and her daughter, Nancy (Melanie Mills) Springer; grandchildren, Luke (Amy Covington) Nirmaier, Danielle (Adrian) Olsgard, Adam (Alina) Nirmaier, Amie (Garret) Yerigan, Aaron (Amanda) Nirmaier, Ivy Mills, Phil (Kendra) Jones, Tiffany Jones, Danielle Jones, Alex Kosak, Sarah (Tyler) Montgomery, Jacob Cumming; 10 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews and wonderful friends.
