Rosemary Simpson sadly passed away on Saturday 30th December 2024 aged 76, peacefully at home, where she wanted to be with family, following a known, steady decline in health.

Rosie, a Microlight Instructor, Rosemary a former Mayor of Broadstairs, Ro/Roe/Rovie/Rosemary Irene born a Watson, Ro missed greatly by her husband Graham, Ro/Rose/Mum/Granny/Aunt, will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Ro's cremation will take place at Thanet Crematorium on Monday 29th January 2024 at 14.30pm.

If you will be attending, the celebration of her life, please make sure you organise yourselves to be there in good time, as she would want you all to be waiting for her 'fly in'. Don't worry we are not dropping her from a plane, although we are sure she would have approved with that idea, but she has done that before! 
Please dress comfortably - mum will be in her colourful flying gear, ready for take off.

Following Ro's cremation, we will continue the memories at Botany Bay Hotel in Broadstairs.  Please come and join us 15.15pm onwards.

Thank you to everyone who has been sharing their memories.  Keep them coming or bring them along on Monday 29th January 2024 at 14.30pm.
If you are unable to attend Ro's cremation service and would like a Web link sent to you via email, please contact jesswilson0307@gmail.com (daughter).
