as Rose)  was born on November 23, 1932 in Jay County, Indiana, the
daughter of John  and Edith (Schindler) Blaine.

Rosemany graduated from Springfield  Catholic Central High School, class of
1952 and married her beloved and  cherished husband, Andrew Paul
Riemenschneider on July 3, 1954 at St.  Raphael Catholic Church. Rose and Andy shared
fifty-four wonderful years  together until his death on August 7, 2008.
Needless to say, Rose grieved  the loss of her beloved Andy.

She worked for the Ohio Bell  Telephone Company for several years, then
later the JC Penney Co. from  1971 to 1990; she was the kind of employee
everyone wishes to  have--dedicated. But her highest priority--always--was being a
homemaker  and raising her three daughter: she was the kind of mother that
anyone  would wish to have--loving, devoted, thoughtful, and always

Rose was a Girl Scout leader and enjoyed sewing, needlework, and  bird
watching. She served her church as a Eucharistic minister at St.  Mary's and
then later St. Raphael parishes.

She is survived by  three daughters and sons-in-law: Barbara and Grant
Edwards of Springfield,  Beverly and Mark Elliott of Franklin, Tennessee, and
Carol and Ken Ober of  Springfield; eight grandchildren who were the delight
of her life (truly,  truly the delight of her life): Megan (Chris Lemaster),
Emily (fiance',  Jason Frantz), Matthew, Aaron, Renee, Jared (Jamie), Ethan,
and Marcus;  three sisters and their spouses: Lucille and Clint Whittaker
of Dayton,  Agnes and David Tucker of Springfield, and Alice and Harry Haynes
of  Springfield, and many nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in  death by her parents, her step-father, Richard
Blaine and her brother,  Paul Schindler.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on  Wednesday, January 13,
from 5-8 p.m. in the LITTLETON & RUE  FUNERAL HOME.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday  at 10:30 a.m. in the
St. Raphael Catholic Church.

Burial will be in  the Calvary Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to her  granddaughter and spouse, Megan
and Chris LeMaster, for their missionary  endeavors, c/o Fellowship Church,
2301 Valley Loop Rd., Springfield, OH  45504.

Rose Riemenschneider will be sorely missed, but we rejoice  that she now
lives in perfect peace with Christ.
