It was with great sadness that we are only after learning, of the sad passing of Rosemarie. We have very happy memories of Rosemarie and Bob, when they would come home on holidays, and it was always fun to meet them, as Rosemarie was full of live and fun. And we have the fondest memories, of both Rosemarie and Bob. We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to all Rosemarie's children, grand children, great grand children and all of the Reddington and Flatley families. May her gentle soul rest in peace.

To all the Reddington family and Flatley family we offer our dearest sympathies. We were privileged to know and enjoy the friendship of Bob and Rose for over forty years.We shared many wonderful times in Ireland /USA/UK together, enjoying their very generous hospitality in NJ. We solved most of the world’s problems, and a few of our own, through sometimes heated , but always interesting and entertaining “debate”. We miss them , visitiing the US will be different now. Best wishes to you all, God Rest to Rose, Peter & Moira Fullam , Naas, Kildare

We are all heartbroken to hear of the passing of our Aunt Rose Marie. She was so deeply loved and will be missed by so many. Some of my best childhood memories are with Aunt Rosie and Uncle Bob, every time they came to Ireland they would throw great parties for all us kids. I remember helping Aunt Rosie set up and she would be sneaking us fizzy drinks and sweets and telling us not to keep quiet to our parents. Aunt Rosie had such a kind and beautiful soul. Aunt Rosie and Uncle Bob are finally back together again. My condolences to the Reddington family, especially to Mary and Annmarie. Love Grace xx

I am very sorry to hear of Aunt Rose Marie’s passing , and extend my sympathy to Mary and all the Reddington family , may she rest in peace . Aunt RoseMarie was so much fun and we loved going to visit her in her holiday home Gills . She had lots of parties for us when we were little and we especially loved the Halloween themed parties . One year Uncle Bob dressed up and hid down the lane way jumping out to scare us . They were both great fun and so good to us all here in Mayo . She will be missed by the Flatley family here in Mayo xxx James.

Aunt Rosie made my first ever trip to America so welcoming and instantly made me feel at home. We had a great time dancing to old Irish songs and eating Irish pudding. She will always have a special place in my heart and my condolences to the Reddington family especially Marv.

My Dear Aunt Rosie , was one of the most unique beautiful women ever to come into my life. We first met when I was 9 years old, I fell in love with her that very day & our relationship evolved throughout the years . We were incredibly close & I know how blessed I am to have shared so much of my life with her. Rosie was highly intelligent, with a deep intuition & was probably the most elegant lady I knew. We shared a love for fashion & spent hours shopping together, ( offer while Bob slept happily in the car) We travel a whole lot together on planes , Ships, Buses, & trains & many road trips . I have wonderful stories & memories from each vacation we spend together that I will treasure for ever. Rosie was so much fun, she loved to laugh & she could laugh hard, we could be heard laughing together for long periods at the silliness of things, on a bus trip from Boston about 10 years ago the bus driver told us if we didn’t stop laughing so loud he would throw us off the bus, as we were disturbing him , this naturally made us explode in laughter & I had to move seats so we would be punished. My Rosie you were & will always remain an inspiration to me & everyone that was lucky enough to come onto your path. You often told me that only “ you & I truly knew what going to Ireland was ( it was going home for us two) Now your path has taken you to your other home , full of family & friends, bring our love home with you & May yYou Rest In Peace . I will love you for ever, my deepest sympathies to Michael & Family, my dear Mary, Robert & Family, Dee & Family , Patrick & Family, her amazing 11 grandchildren & 3 beautiful great grandchildren . Ann Marie ( Annie)
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Rosemarie was my Aunt and I have nothing but fond memories of her. Always laughing, and her generous nature. All through my childhood we would visit New Jersey to see her and the family. Then after I moved to Ireland , I visited numerous times, always fun, always looking for an adventure. We would toboggan in the woods in Holmdel , or visit the farm in Pennsylvania .In my 40's her and Bob had an engage party for Me & Theresa, always thoughtful. She will be sadly missed.
Ann Fitzpatrick McNamee left a message on May 11, 2022:
My aunt Rosemarie was such a unique person, full of warmth, generosity and fun. I have great memories of her throughout my childhood and adulthood, and I always loved to see her. In the 70s, when we were living on Long Island, it was such a joy to see her station wagon pull up outside unexpectedly as she and her children arrived for a spontaneous visit. Decades later, my son, Emmet, experienced the same delight over visits with Rosemarie. He and I still discuss wonderful times spent at Rosemarie and Bob’s farm throughout his childhood. She was a wonderful, generous host and had a lovely way with children and adults alike. She was great at keeping her connection with Ireland and always had a special place in our hearts here in Mayo. She was a true giver in life, and always focused on the positive side. We will miss her greatly, and send our heartfelt sympathy to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ann, Maxi & Emmet
Colleen Fitzpatrick left a message on May 10, 2022:
My aunt Rosemarie was one of the warmest and most generous people I've ever met. she was so kind and giving. Rosemarie and I shared a love of jewellery & I remember if I admired anything she had on she would take it off and give it to me. When Rosemarie & Bob had one of their children's party at their home in Ireland, my daughter, Aida, then aged 5, admired her necklace and she took it off and gave it to her. Aida still has it and a number of other pieces of jewellery that Rosemarie gave her. She had no attachment to material things and was more interested in the joy of experiences and people. She was an open and non-judgmental person, always ready to laugh and enjoy life to the full, trying new things fearlessly all her life and never complaining. We all loved Rosemarie so much, it is hard to believe that she is gone. My deepest sympathies to her children and grandchildren.
Mary Fitzpatrick left a message on May 10, 2022:
Rosemarie was my much loved sister and best friend. Rosemarie & I grew up on a farm in the West of Ireland, where we were very mischievous. We had a memorable childhood & in the last months of Rosemarie's life I would remind her of the many things we did together and she would laugh loudly and love to hear the stories. Rosemarie, I have loved you so much in life & will not forget you in death. I will remember you as the diamond glint on snow and the sunlight on the golden grain. your loving sister, Mary xxx

Aunt Rosemarie was a beautiful person both inside and out where her warmth and beauty shone through. She and uncle Bob were the kindest of people who always made room for guests in their home even though they had a busy household themselves. I had the pleasure of spending a month with them in the summer of 1973. Rosie was full of fun and kindness and a wonderful sense of humour. My brother Pat (RIP) would also want to thank her and Bob for their care and kindness to him and something tells me that they are having fun and laughs in heaven at this moment. I send my sincere condolences to Rosemarie’s lovely family. May she rest in peace xx
