Rosemary was born on April 14, 1939 at the family farm in Paris Township the 9th child of John Sr. and Rose Mae (Wunderlin) Reuter. “Pug” as so many called her farmed with her brother, Clinton, until his passing in Lima Township in 1998. On the farm she was like a vet in taking care of the livestock. She took care of many nieces and nephews in the summer as they enjoyed being on the farm. She also worked several years at Rural Route 1 in Livingston. Her biggest enjoyments were talking on the phone with family, dog sitting and her strong faith in the Lord.
Pug is survived by her sisters, Dorothy Klein, Velma (Leonard) Melssen and Anna (Eugene) Stelpflug; brother, John (Rose Marie) Reuter; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters, Matilda, Loretta (Emil) Miesen, Wilma (Joe) Fuerstenberg, brothers, Clinton, Clifford (Loretta) Reuter, brother-in-law, Herbert Klein and nieces Veronica and Patricia Fuerstenberg.
