Rosemary Roellig Campbell, 73, died March 4 at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., after battling heart and lung disease for several years.
Rosemary was born Feb. 12, 1946 in Philadelphia, Pa. She was a graduate of St. Hubert's High School in Philadelphia and Gwynedd Mercy College in Gwynedd Valley, Pa. She had a long career as a property tax administrator with Gulf Oil Corporation in Atlanta, Ga., and later with a property tax consulting firm in Atlanta and Denver, Colo. In retirement, she and her husband, Edward Campbell lived in Estes Park and then Gunnison, Colo., before relocating in Grand Junction in 2018. No matter where she lived, Rosemary was always first in line to volunteer to "bring-the-food" to any church or civic organization of which she was a part.
Rosemary was preceded in death by her parents, Charles W. Roellig, Sr. and Elsie Ries Roellig; and by her brother, Charles W. Roellig, Jr., of Sunnyvale, Calif., and by her brother-in-law, William H. Green, Sr. of Philadelphia, Pa.
She is survived by her sisters, Marita Roellig Green, and Elsa Roellig, both of Philadelphia, Pa.; by her sister-in-law, Marilyn Roellig, of Sunnyvale, Calif.; by her godson, William Green, Jr., of Cambridge, Mass.; and by her goddaughter, Janet Roellig Pasco, of Danville, Calif., in addition to numerous other nieces and nephews.
Rosemary's ashes will be placed in the Columbarium of the Gunnison Episcopal Church of the Good Samaritan at a time and place to be announced later.
