Rosemary Holland, 74, of Fayetteville, passed away on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Select Specialty Hospital in Camp Hill. Born June 28, 1945 in Buffalo, New York, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Ruth Colvin Brinkworth.

Rosi and I were classmates and friends at ECTI from 1963-1965. We shared some wonderful memories and I wish we had reconnected while she was still living. My condolences to her family.

I met Rosemary in 1962 when my family moved in next door to the Brinkworth's in Tonawanda, NY. What I remember most about Rosemary is that she was always happy. She had a perpetual smile and such a warm personality that she attracted friends wherever she went. My heart goes out to her sisters, Reen and Diane, along with her husband, Bill. I will always remember her kind heart and know that she is with God, her parents, her sister Mary Lou and her son, Rob in the realm of eternal life.
