Bokermann, Rosemary Alice(nee Koebbe) took her final breath on March 10, 2017 surrounded by her family. Beloved wife of Gary Bokermann; dear mother of Julie(Nikki) Bokermann, Gary Bokermann Jr and Elizabeth Bokermann; dear grandmother of Avery and Rosemary ; dear sister to Gerri Herbst (Joe), Joyce Bunt (Larry), Karen Page (Dave), August Koebbe Jr. (Suzanne), Beverly Fitzsimmons (Terry) and David Koebbe (Gina); our dear sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, aunt, great aunt, niece, cousin and friend to all she met. Preceded in death by August Koebbe Sr., Marcella Koebbe and Al Bokermann.
Rose was a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend. She was always the life of the party and her laugh made everyone smile. She had a heart of gold and never met a stranger. She spent most of her life being the most amazing mom and then took on a second career in the catering department at Enterprise. She was so proud of her children, but more recently her grandchildren that she loved with the most generous, open and kind heart. She will be missed by all but the memories will stay alive forever. “Life is a book. The fact that it was a short book doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good book. It was a VERY good book.”
