Lifetime Monte Vista resident Rosemary Lounsbury, 82, passed away peacefully July 29th at the Rio Grande Hospital in Del Norte surrounded by family.

Rosemary was born in Monte Vista, Colorado on November 24, 1937, the daughter to Earnest and Doris Livingston Stiver. She married her husband of 60 years, Donald Lee Lounsbury at the Methodist Church in Monte Vista on July 5, 1959. They made their home in Monte Vista where she worked for the Monte Vista Hospital and later for the San Luis Valley Health as an X-Ray Technician. She completed more than 40 years in her trade. She loved her family and friends!! Her greatest joys came from being a swimming and motorcycle Mom, jeeping, time spent at the cabin in Creede and time spent with friends in Arizona.

Rosemary is survived by their children Mark (Gigi Dennis) Lounsbury and Leanne (Louie Gonzales) Lounsbury; her sister Cheryl (John) Goad-Buchheim; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rosemary is preceded in death by her parents, her husband and her siblings Mitch Stiver and Jeanene Stiver Swaggerty.

Cremation was chosen and private services will be held at a later date. Contributions in her memory are suggested to the Monte Vista Ambulance and may be made through the funeral home office at 404 Morris Street, Monte Vista, CO 81144.

Your Mom & Dad were such good friends of my parents..... I remember all the fun time with the Fire Dept. And your Mom was so exceptional in her work.... many many times she took care of me at the hospital. You are in our prayers....

Sincere sympathy to the family of Rosemary. We are glad her suffering has ended. Memories of Rosemary go back many years
to when we attended Girl Scout Camp at Valley View in the early Fifties. She was always causing some excitement like putting a bull snake in someone's sleeping bag. She and Don were across-the-street neighbors to Mom DeFreece for lots of
years also. I learned who her Mom, Mrs. Stiver was, when our first child was born in the Monte Vista Hospital and she was working hard there.
